Mahler 7 on Nicollet Mall
Since Minnesota Orchestra's latest recording, featuring Mahler's Seventh Symphony, was released in May 2020, it has been listened to around the globe and received rave reviews.
"Whatever the instrumental colours,Vänskä and his crew balance the kaleidoscope with astonishing dexterity, from doleful horns, puncturing timpani and shrieking fortissimos to gossamer threads of guitar and mandolin or the mountain cowbells far away." -The Times (London)
"Minnesota Orchestra's latest Mahler may be the best-sounding on record." -Star Tribune
Now we are excited to share that you can also listen to the recording while walking down Nicollet Mall in downtown Minneapolis.
The Minneapolis Downtown Improvement District (DID) and Minnesota Orchestra are partnering to broadcast the recording on the Nicollet sound system between 6th and 8th Streets each Friday and Sunday at 2 p.m., beginning July 31, 2020, and throughout the month of August. The Minneapolis DID offers music along Nicollet Center’s two blocks, adding vibrancy to the street through partnerships, events or collaborative programming.
