The Minnesota Orchestra steps into spring with the profound slow movement from Pulitzer Prize-winner George Walker's String Quartet No. 1. Osmo Vänskä conducts Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony, a work of strength and optimism that looks ahead to warmer days, and French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet soars through Ravel’s kaleidoscopic Piano Concerto in G.
