With the publication of the second volume, all of the Slavonic Dances are now available in Urtext. Following the resounding success of the first series op. 46, which immediately made the composer famous around the world, the publisher urged him to write more. Dvorak only got down to work on them eight years lat er, announcing, I think, these will be very different. And indeed, the differe nce cannot be missed: the second series is singled out by greater formal freed om and more colourful harmony. Whereas Opus 46 is for the most part characteri sed by sparkling high spirits, in Opus 72 there are also quieter notes: melanc holy and poetry find their way into the exuberant dance.
