Minnesota Orchestra Wows New York


Those who were successful in obtaining a seat in Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher Hall in New York the afternoon of Sunday, April 13th found themselves to be truly fortunate indeed, as The Minnesota Orchestra under Music Director Osmo Vänskä took the hall, audience and critics by storm with a performance of Sibelius' The Dryad and a rare presentation of Mahler's original conception for his Symphony No. 1 in D, which includes the Blumine movement. The featured work on the program was Schumann's Piano Concerto in A minor with acclaimed pianist Lars Vogt at the keyboard. The concert was part of Lincoln Center's Great Performers Series.

The New York Times declared that The Minnesota Orchestra "sounded more brightly polished and supercharged than ever," adding that "the music making was extraordinary." By the full house and thunderous applause, it was evident that the New York audience whole-heartedly agreed.

Now ranked among the top American symphonic ensembles under Maestro Vänskä, the Minnesota Orchestra made its only appearance this season outside of its home state in the April 13th performance at Lincoln Center. Classical Movements has enjoyed an affable, productive and successful working relationship with the Minnesota Orchestra over the years, and looks ahead to future projects together with eagerness and enthusiasm.

And speaking of the future, it does indeed look bright for The Minnesota Orchestra, as Maestro Vänskä has extended his tenure with the Orchestra through 2011. Orchestra and conductor together have generated quite a buzz in the music world of late, and the Orchestra's ongoing Beethoven Symphony Cycle on the BIS label - conducted by Vänskä - has garnered considerable acclaim, including a 2008 Grammy Award nomination for "Best Orchestral Performance" for Beethoven's Ninth Symphony.

Classical Movements wishes to extend a sincere word of congratulations to The Minnesota Orchestra on a most triumphant Lincoln Center appearance.
