On October 27, the Minnesota Orchestra performed a program consisting of Tchaikovsky and Nielsen at Carnegie Hall — a reprise of which will be performed in Orchestra Hall on November 1.

Reviewed in the New York Times, the Minnesota Orchestra was described as "sounding like one of America's finest."
