The Jerusalem Quartet explores two aspects of Dvořák’s chamber music: one of the first big successes in the genre of a Bohemian composer who now enjoyed a well-established reputation in Europe (op.48), and one of the masterpieces from the years of American exile which brought him worldwide fame (op.97).
He had just made his decisive breakthrough. More or less overnight, Antonín Dvorák, now thirty-six years old, had risen to the front rank of European composers – and had done so with works that bore their national, popular aura in the title.
