The concerto is sometimes designated as Dvorak's "tenth symphony", and the inspired interconnection between the solo instrument and the orchestra alone would seem to justify this characterisation to a certain extent. Hanus Wihan furnished the solo part with fingerings, proposed modifications of a few passages and wrote a cadenza in the final movement of the concerto. Dvorak's disapproval was not only justified but also definite.  Dvorak dedicated the concerto to Wihan, it was premiered on 19 March 1896 in London by the English cellist Leo Stern. Wihan let himself be overtaken by a number of other cellists before he finally did get to perform the concerto, in Budapest at the end of 1899. As the composer's contemporaries revealed, Dvorak many a time joked about the topic of dedications - in future, he would make use of his experience with dedications when he wanted to cut someone off from the circle of its interpreters.

Video of Dvorak concerto op.104 for cello and orchestra:
Antonín Leopold Dvořák (1841 – 1904) was a Czech composer. After Bedřich Smetana, he was the second Czech composer to achieve worldwide recognition. Following Smetana's nationalist example, Dvořák frequently employed aspects, specifically rhythms, of the folk music of Moravia and his native Bohemia. Dvořák’s own style has been described as the fullest recreation of a national idiom with that of the symphonic tradition, absorbing folk influences and finding effective ways of using them.
