The Minnesota Orchestra has just finished a big concert. They just played a huge symphony, Bruckner's 4th, in a huge hall at what might be the most famous festival in the world -- the BBC Proms. The Proms is known for its rabid and rowdy classical music crowds.
The Minnesota Orchestra, under music director Osmo Vanska, is the only American orchestra invited to play in the enormous Royal Albert Hall in London at this summer's Proms festival.
Brian Newhouse from Classical Minnesota Public Radio is in London for the festival. He was the co-host of a live broadcast of that concert, which was also heard nationwide in the UK on Radio 3. He spoke with All Things Considered host Tom Crann.
