The first string quartet by the 14-year-old Mozart, composed in 1770 on an evening in Lodi, echoes impressions of his first trip to Italy. Born in Bratislava, Johann Nepomuk Hummel was a pupil of Mozart's in his younger years and a formative piano virtuoso and composer in the early 19th century. His brilliant Piano Quintet op. 87 from 1822 on the one hand draws on the classical period, but is nevertheless rich in romantic overtones. To conclude, Antonín Dvořák's powerfully melodious Piano Quintet op. 81 derives from rich Czech folk music and uses the dance rhythms of the dumka and furiant.
