Minnesota Orchestra's latest disc wows the Brits

Reviews from London are in and Osmo, the Minn Orch and Stephen Hough get high marks.

The London Times writes "Every concerto features incisive conducting from Osmo Vanska and the chiselled splendour of his Minnesota Orchestra."

The London Observer: "Osmo Vanska's suave direction of the Minnesota players allows Hough's brilliance to shine through."

You can listen to a re-broadcast tonight at 8:00 of one of those live sessions with Stephen Hough playing Tchaikovsky with the Minnesota Orchesra.
