Dvořák 8 Humoresques, Op. 101

Humoresques (Humoresky), Op. 101 (B. 187), is a 1894 piano cycle by Antonín Dvořák. That summer the composer stayed in Bohemia, and he began to use collected material to compose a new cycle of short piano pieces. The cycle was entitled Humoresques shortly before Dvořák sent the score to his German publisher F. Simrock. It was released that same autumn. The publisher took advantage of the great popularity of the seventh Humoresque to produce arrangements for many instruments and ensembles. The piece was later also published as a song with various lyrics. It has also been arranged for choir. In the United States, the no. 7 has become the setting for a series of mildly scatological humorous verses, regarding passenger train toilets.
