Works of Schulhoff and Dvořák show a combination of intimacy and orchestral richness possible only in a string sextet. Setting the stage is the Op. 104 Quintet of Beethoven, the composer’s own arrangement of one of his popular early piano trios—a creative translation that highlights his later reverence for the expressive potential of string ensembles.
