The work in question was the Sonatina for Violin and Piano with which Dvorak celebrated his Op. 100, dedicating it "to my children—Otilka, Tonik, Aninka, Maifenka, Otakar and Zinda, to commemorate the completion of my hundredth work." He wrote it particularly with two of them in mind: 15-year-old Otilka, who was a talented pianist, and 10-year-old Tonik (Antonin), who was learning to play the violin. This sonatina was written in 1893 while Dvorak was living in America, in the same year, in fact, as the Symphony "From the New World" (Op. 95 in E minor) and the "American" String Quartet (Op. 96 in F), and, like both of the larger works, it is full of American elements—especially in its use of syncopation and folk melody—while expressing more than a hint of the nostalgia born of self-imposed exile. It has four movements, the slow movement coming second. Its melody came to Dvorak during a visit to the Minnehaha Falls in Minnesota, which reminded him of Longfellow's "Song of Hiawatha." He is said to have sketched the outline of the melody on his shirt-sleeve; later, as one of his most popular works, it was published widely and variously under such titles as Indian Lament and Indian Canzonetta.
