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."

You can listen to the Minnesota Orchestra on-air or online Friday evenings at 8 p.m., hosted by Brian Newhouse.
