Symphony Center Presents Orchestra Series 312-294-3000
One of America’s top symphonic ensembles, the Minnesota Orchestra has a long history of acclaimed performances around the world. Finnish conductor Osmo Vänskä and his celebrated ensemble—both superb Sibelius interpreters—head to Orchestra Hall for the composer’s profound symphonic poem En Saga, along with Tchaikovsky’s majestic First Piano Concerto, featuring Israeli pianist Inon Barnatan, and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7. “That plush, super-charged Minnesota sound is back with a new edge of tenacity” said The Guardian.
