Apart from a few sheets of harmony assignments, the only practice piece of Antonin Dvorak to survive is his final work, titled Compositionsversuche in Praludien und Fugen, with which he completed his theoretical studies at the Prague Organ School in 1859. There is no doubt that the composition is a student's one, of good technical quality, but stunted by its purpose. It is, however, without a doubt an important document for understanding the circumstances and influences that affected the composer's coming of age. The publication includes a Preface and Editor's Notes, and is part of the first Complete Edition of the Works of Antonin Dvorak.

    These short preludes and fugues were written by Dvorak as an organ student, and are apparently his only compositions for the organ. They are thus primarily of historical interest, but have some nice features, especially the Fugue in Gm (which Dvorak performed at his graduation).
