The Moravian Duets, written to Moravian folk songs withpiano accompaniment, wereinstigated by Jan Neff, an influential wholesale merchant in Prague whoemployed Dvorakas a piano teacher for his family. The composer first wrote Three Duets forSoprano andTenor with piano accompaniment, Op. 20. The Neff family were delighted withthem and soDvorak continued with cycles II and III, Op. 32, this time for female voices.The entirecollection culminated in 1877 with another four duets with piano accompaniment,publishedas Op. 38. Instead of a simple arrangement of folk melodies, Dvorak createdduets basedon folk texts with their own musical setting. This opus contributedsignificantly to the successand familiarity of the composer's work abroad. This title is the criticaledition based on thecomposer's manuscript.
