Spillville Variations for flute viola and guitar



  • Highly recommended

From the Publisher

Red Cedar Chamber Music invited sixteen composers to participate in a group commissioning project to celebrate the 2004 centennial of Czech composer Antonín Dvorák (1841-1904). The resulting "Spillville Variations on a Theme by Dvorák" is a group commissioning project for Flute, Viola and Guitar, with 10 selected variations set for cello to replace the viola. The variations are based on a theme from Antonín Dvorák’s “American” Quartet in F, Op. 96, written in Spillville, Iowa, USA in 1893.
