Fun Facts:

  • This is Yo-Yo Ma’s first performance with the Minnesota Orchestra since 2002.
  • Ma’s recordings often defy categorization, including his Obrigado Brazil, The Goat Rodeo Sessions and his recent Sing Me Home, with his colleagues of the Silk Road Ensemble.
  • Felix Mendelssohn wrote his Overture to A Midsummer Night’s Dream when he was only 17.
  • While Mendelssohn’s Concerto imagines a comic romp through a moonlit woods, Dvořák’s Silent Woods is by contrast dreamy and lyrical.
