Antonin Dvorák

Humoresque No. 7 for piano in G flat major, B. 187/7 (Op. 101/7)

    Description by James Leonard

    For all that it matters, Antonin Dvorák (1841-1904) wrote the Humoresques (8) for solo piano in 1894 and they were published as his Op. 101. But, for all intents and purposes, he may as well have written only one, the seventh in G flat major Poco lento e grazioso, because not only has it far exceeded the others in popularity, it quickly became known throughout the world in countless arrangements as "Dvorák's Humoresque." With its lightly skipping, instantly memorable melody over gently rolled chords, plus chromatic cadences in the outer sections and a sometimes happy, sometimes sad melody in the minor and the major in the central section, Dvorák's Humoresque in G flat major is delightful, charming, and unforgettable, no matter how hard one tries. It has even become a popular music standard, appearing in countless movies evoking what were once unironically called the Gay Nineties.
