The Minnesota Orchestra returns for its first UMS performance since its 1972 debut in an all-Sibelius program, including the stunning and rarely heard Snöfrid with the UMS Choral Union.

Osmo Vänskä has a special affinity for Nordic repertoire and especially the Finnish composer Jean Sibelius; two recordings in the orchestra’s three-CD set of the complete Sibelius symphonies received both a Grammy nomination and a Grammy win for Best Orchestral Performance. US-born Finnish violinist Elina Vähälä makes her UMS debut with Sibelius’s Violin Concerto, which alternates showy technical brilliance with uncommonly beautiful melodies. A perfect winter concert for the end of January!

PROGRAM

Sibelius Snöfrid (Snowy Peace), Op. 29
Sibelius Violin Concerto in d minor, Op. 47
Sibelius Symphony No. 5 in E-flat Major, Op. 82

Encore:
Sibelius Valse Triste, from Kuolema, Op. 44
