Although some of them may have been sketched while he was in the "New World" as director of the New York Conservatory, Dvorak completed and published his Humoresques (as Op.101) while back in the Czech Republic in 1894. These Humoresques are a set of 8 piano pieces and the name means light and playful or whimsical. The eight pieces are all in different keys, and it is No.7 in G-flat major which has become the most popular with lots of different versions for different instruments and combinations. The original version of Humoresque No.7 is a little tricky in G-flat major (6 flats) and with some finger stretching chords, so this version is in G major and slightly simplified. It should be played in a playful manner with varying articulations and plenty of melodramatic pauses and tempo changes. Download links are in the left-hand menu or scroll down for more options.
In addition to this version in G major, we also have the original version of Humoresque No.7 in G-flat major, and a further arrangement for violin and piano which is also in G major (with alternative parts for flute, oboe, viola, cello or bassoon).
