In March of 2010, Osmo Vänskä and the Minnesota Orchestra performed Beethoven’s Grosse Fuge on one of music’s greatest stages at Carnegie Hall. It was part of a performance that earned a review from The New Yorker’s Alex Ross, who exclaimed: “the Minnesota Orchestra sounded, to my ears, like the greatest orchestra in the world.” Now, Michael Francis leads a performance of the epic fugue in an arrangement that expands the original string quartet to a full string section. Johannes Moser returns to play Shostakovich’s First Cello Concerto, and the Orchestra sparkles in Montgomery’s Strum and Mozart’s Jupiter Symphony.
