In August 2016 Vänskä leads the Grammy Award-winning ensemble on a four-country European tour, visiting Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Edinburgh and Lahti, Finland.

Reviews

“The concert was urgent, authoritative. ... The ensemble played throughout in a white heat - with richness but without fat.” (Zachary Woolfe, The New York Times, March 2016)

“Osmo Vänskä and the Minnesota Orchestra are among the finest contemporary advocates for the Sibelius symphonies, and their Thursday night concert of the Finnish composer’s music was a superb experience, full of deep feeling and explosive energy. The concert built inexorably to a point of complete and profound fulfillment.” (New York Classical Review, March 2016) 

“Under Vänskä and the Minnesota Orchestra, Sibelius complexities, glories and triumphs were immediate and accessible.  American alacrity, with liberty and Sibelius for all.” (Courtney Smith, BachTrack.com, March 2016)
