Today's the day when the Minnesota Orchestra begins its two-day stand at the Proms in London. MPR's Brian Newhouse is also in London to host the broadcast, which you can hear at 1:30 (Minnesota time) this afternoon.
Britons who may be less familiar with the Orchestra and its conductor can do prep work by reading an article in Wednesday's Telegraph. The headline writer may have gotten a tad carried away in describing the Orchestra's pre-Osmo "obscurity"--but see what you think. Complete article here.
I've been listening to this Concert on BBC Radio 3,
a very spacious, dynamic and poised perfmonance from the band. Deep joy,
I hope that a recording will find it's way onto local FM.
