BEETHOVEN: Symphony No. 3 "Eroica" mvt. 1 –Minnesota Orchestra, Osmo Vänskä, conductor (BIS 1516)
One of the great luxuries in life is to have something custom-made for you, and the lucky Minnesota Orchestra just got a hand-tailored piece delivered to them from the phenomenal Finnish composer Kalevi Aho. His "Minea" starts this Minneapolis concert, and the Orchestra sends its audience home whistling familiar tunes from Strauss' Der Rosenkavalier.
