As official photographer to the Toyota Classics series in Brunei Darussalam since 2007, I began collecting the event posters from 2008 with autographs by the conductor, soprano, artists. What began a biennial event has turned into an annual affair for the last 4 consecutive years — yes, it’s that popular! This year Toyota Classics 2011 blends tradition with contemporary, meeting East and West with Pamela and Vasko in concert with the Northeast German Philharmonic Orchestra. I’m excited at the possibility (read on for details of ticket prices and availability).

Toyota Classics 2011 proudly opens its prestigious doors to present classical music with the unique touch of Pamela and Vasko. Aside from performing and recording all over the world as a piano and violin duo, these skilful artists are famed for innovative projects which bring classical music to the cutting edge of popular culture. Vasko, nicknamed ‘Super-Paganini’ by the press, is a former child prodigy himself, and the youngest ever Concertmaster of the Royal Opera House in London. The Northeast German Philharmonic Orchestra make a welcome return to Toyota Classics to perform exciting new arrangements with both exceptional talents. Under the talented conduction of Thomas Dorsch and performing Pamela’s cross-cultural creations that enchants generations, this fine orchestra delivers an enviable musical heritage, classics as you have never heard before.
