A new work commissioned by the Minnesota Orchestra is special — only 20 such works have been introduced on the Orchestra’s subscription series in the past 19 years — and the upcoming Lunar New Year concerts on February 5 and 6 bring an even greater rarity: the Feb. 5 world premiere of a new concerto will feature the composer herself as soloist.
