Posted by: Kristin Tillotson under Classical, Minnesota musicians Updated: February 7, 2013 - 1:55 PM

 

 A story in the New York Times today brings national attention to the Minnesota Orchestra musicians' lockout, now four months along with no quick resolution in sight.

Critic James Oestreich wrote that the orchestra, which performed the Sibelius symphonies nos. 2 and 5 for which it is nominated for a Grammy award, "played like the truly great ensemble it has become in nine seasons under Mr. Vanska."

As for the nominated disc, he called it "superb" and "easily among the best of 2012." The Grammy award for best orchestral performance will be announced Sunday afternoon, before the televised ceremony.
