Dvorak's arrangement for orchestra of 'The Old Folks at Home' was made in the 1890s for a Summer School held in Spillville, Iowa. Those attending were mostly drawn from a local Czech-speaking community and Dvorak enjoyed sharing time with people who spoke his own language. As instrumentalists the players were limited, many little more than beginners; yet in his arrangement Dvorak created a musically authentic and attractive setting of Stephen Foster's popular melody that is truly a masterpiece in economy of demand. Many years later, in 1942, Edwin Franko Goldman invited Erik Leidzen to transcribe Dvorak's arrangement for concert band.
