Antonín Dvorák’s five-movement “Suite in A major” for piano was completed in New York on 1 March 1894, shortly after the triumphant success of his “New World” Symphony. As he himself noted in the autograph, it was the fifth piece he composed during his stay abroad. In a letter to his publisher Simrock he called the Suite, alongside the “Biblical Songs”, his finest achievement to date in this area. The Suite was published by Simrock in that same year and received its première performance in December.

After meticulously examining all the surviving sources, including Dvorák’s autograph score, editor Iacopo Cividini chose the original print as the main source for his edition.
