Complementing the compelling influence of his Czech musical heritage, Antonín Dvořák
(1841-1904) aspired to write the music of broader, more universal appeal.
The quintet’s unconventional scoring of a double bass lends it a particular sonority. In addition to grounding the ensemble with a deeper harmonic foundation, the double bass furthermore frees the cello to join the violin and viola in the treble register.
Still, he often imbued his music with certain traits, particularly rhythmic ones, of his native Moravian and Bohemian music.
