This short piano piece was written at the end of 1877 under the influence of Schubert’s piano dances Ecossaises. It has a simple formal arrangement (a series of eight-bar periods following on from one another) and distinctive rhythm. Two years later Dvorak had it published by Prague publisher Emanuel Stary.
