Dvorak Slavonic Dance #8



Dvorak was still a relatively unknown composer when he wrote his first set of Slavonic Dances in 1878, and it is this composition that launched him on the road to international fame. He originally wrote these dances for piano four hands, but they are most often played in his orchestral versions. Dvorak's Slavonic Dance #8 captures the feel of a rustic peasant dance in Bohemia.

This composition can be played by 6,772,644 different combinations of instruments (really!).
