Composed in autumn of 1881, Opus 61 is the last of Dvořák’s “middle” quartets by chronology for which Beethoven and Schubert served as the most significant models. Beethoven’s influence, from thematic development to motivic treatment, is particularly noticeable in this work in C major. It is only in the finale that the typical Slavic tonal quality usually found in Dvořák’s music surfaces somewhat more prominently. Due to a lack of time, the composer - contrary to his usual practice - turned to older, either discarded or hitherto unpublished themes from other works for three of the four movements. This reliable Urtext edition continues the comprehensive Henle series of significant works of chamber music by Dvořák.

      G. Henle Publishers stands for Urtext sheet music of the highest quality. The Urtext editions not only provide the undistorted and authoritative musical text but are also aesthetically pleasing, optimised for practical use and extremely durable. And then there is the strong, distinctive blue profile: (almost) all of the Urtext editions are bound in the characteristic blue cardboard.

      Musicians trust Henle's blue Urtext editions because they:

      • provide an undistorted, reliable and authoritative musical text
      • offer superb, aesthetically appealing music engraving
      • are optimized for practical use (page turns, fingerings)
      • are of high quality and durable (cover, paper, binding)
      • contain a short preface that introduces the work (particulalry useful for AMEB exams) in German, English and French, as well as explanatory footnotes for particularly interesting passages in the score
      • contain a description of the sources, an evaluation of the sources, readings and a documentation of the corrections made (= "Critical Report") in German and English, and often also in French
