The Piano Quintet in A major, impresses with a richly adorned melody, part of a second movement ‘dumka’.
This term has Ukrainian origins, used by Dvořák to describe a piece with dance-infused sections, contrasting slow and fast speeds.
The slow sections often have melancholic thoughts, while the fast are more spirited.
