The volume contains three of Dvorak's compositions for cello: Polonaise in A major (B 94) and two original arrangements of the Slavonic Dances from Op. 46 (Nos. 3 and 8). The polonaise was written for the concertmaster of the orchestra of the Provisional Theatre, Alois Neruda. The autograph of the work is lost, and for this reason the composition is included merely as a supplement to the volume, as it draws only from a copy of the piece that was made with the author's consent from Neruda's original by Prof. Wilhelm Jeral, who gave it to Universal Edition for publishing in 1925. When Dvorak organised an extensive concert tour throughout the Czech lands before his departure to America, he needed some compositions for cello and piano for his partner in the trio, the cellist Hanus Wihan. Among others, he created both the arrangements of the Slavonic Dances (No. 3 was unfinished, the current edition offers a version edited by Jarmil Burghauser and revised by Josef Chuchro). The publication is part of the first Complete Critical Edition of the Works of Antonin Dvorak.
