Antonín Dvorák was a poor composer in 1875. He used to supplement his income by giving piano lessons with upper-class Praguer. That’s how he met Jan Neff’s family. Jan Nett was a rich Moravian storekeeper who was used to ask him to stay to accompany the couple on the piano. Jan Neff asked him for popular Moravian songs, but Antonín Dvorák recreated it and kept the original lyrics and atmosphere of these songs. He composed new works, including 23 Moravian duets intended to be sung by two voices accompanied on the piano split into five collections. “A já ti uplynu” is the first one of them. It can be sung by sopranos and altos accompanied by the piano, but also by choirs.
