The mature Antonín Dvořák vs. the teenage Josef Suk – a duel with two victors. Recorded at the Concert Hall of the Prague Conservatrory 2016. Works by Antonín Dvořák and Josef Suk – a teacher and his devoted pupil, the father-in-law and his son-inlaw – have customarily been performed together at concerts and featured next to each other on recordings. Yet that is all they have in common. Dvořák’s Opus 87 reveals the personal and creative maturity of the 48-year-old composer, who at the time was in the prime of his life. Soon after completing his quartet, the maestro assumed the post of professor of composition at the Prague Conservatory. This decision would prove to be fateful – yet not so much for himself as it would be for the 17-year-old Suk, who was one of the most gifted students of Dvořák’s selected class.
