From the organizer:

The Ho Chi Minh City Ballet, Symphony Orchestra and Opera (HBSO) will stage a concert on March 9 conducted by its music director Tran Vuong Thach. It will feature the ever-popular symphony “From the New World” by Antonin Dvorak and Leroy Anderson’s Piano Concerto in C.

Dvorak’s “New World” symphony is far and away his best-loved symphony, and indeed one of the best-loved symphonies by any composer. The HBSO orchestra has played this symphony several times, and its intense beauty will be augmented as usual by the splendor of the HCMC Opera House.

The Piano Concerto in C by Leroy Anderson (1908 to 1975) was premiered in 1954, but Anderson withdrew it following mixed reviews. The score was eventually published by his family in 1988.

The concerto will be performed by pianist Nguyen Thuy Yen. Yen graduated from the Saigon Conservatory with top honors, both at bachelor and master’s levels. She has since then become a prominent and popular pianist on Vietnam’s classical music scene.
