AntoninDvorak'sPiano Quintet in A Major, Op. 81, B 155, was composed in 1888. Dvorak's fame had grown outside of his homeland, enough so that there was a steady demand for his work. To meet that demand, he began to revise some of his forgotten works, including the Piano Quintet in A Major, Op. 5. Finding his new work on that piece to be much more intriguing than what he had previously done, Dvorak dismissed the relationship and published the piece as its own work.
