Global Connection: Minnesota Orchestra + Seoul Philharmonic
Brought together by Music Director Osmo Vänskä, the Minnesota Orchestra and Seoul Philharmonic build a musical bridge across the globe to bring you this one-of-a-kind collaborative edition of Edward Elgar’s sublime Nimrod from the Enigma Variations.
"I believe strongly that music enables each of us to share our emotions both alone and together, and it can elicit feelings like grief, hope, faith in a better future and love," says Vänskä. "Nimrod by Edward Elgar brings to my mind all of those emotions when I am conducting or listening to it, and I am convinced that all the players on the video are also sharing the same thoughts literally across the globe, from Minneapolis to Seoul. We all wish you strength, hope and peace."
