The big stage concerts mark the return of one of the most beloved musical events in Vietnam after two years of interruption because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Young talented Vietnamese cello soloist Phan Do Phuc and artists from the Vietnam Symphony Orchestra will perform immortal works by Czech music composer Antonin Dvořák.
The concert, which features Cello Concerto B-minor, Op. 104 and Symphony No. 9 E-minor “From the New World”, Op. 95. Cello Concerto B-minor, Op. 104 will be conducted by Japanese Maestro Honna Tetsuji.
Antonín Leopold Dvořák (1841- 1904) was the first Bohemian composer to achieve worldwide recognition, for turning folk material into 19th-century Romantic music.
The musician composer’s technical fluency and abundant melodic inspiration helped him to create a large and varied output. He composed in all the musical genres and left works that are regarded as classics in all of them, with the possible exception of opera.

Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9 in E Minor (From the New World; 1893) remains his best-known work, partly, no doubt, because it was thought to be based on African American spirituals and other influences gained during his years in the United States.
Meanwhile, The Cello Concerto in B minor, Op. 104, B. 191, is the last solo concerto by Dvořák, which was written in 1894.
Toyota Concert 2022 is a part of activities to mark the 50th anniversary of Vietnam-Japan diplomatic ties.
This is the 25th edition of the annual Toyota Concert funded by the Toyota Vietnam Foundation, whose first edition was held in 1998.
Since its inception in 1990, the concert has been holding full-house concerts across Asia. The charity concerts helped to promote classical music in the region. To date, it has raised over US$9.03 million to benefit local charities across Asia.
In Vietnam, since 2009, all ticket proceeds are used for the “Toyota Scholarship for Vietnam Young Music Talents” program, financing hundred of scholarships for local students who are pursuing the passion for classical music.
