The City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra has a reputation as 

“the best catalyst of success for young conductors” (Die Zeit) having 

discovered great conductors such as Sir Simon Rattle and latest Andris 

Nelsons. Therefore the inaugural concert of Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla as the 

new CBSO Music Director was eagerly awaited, so much, that next to the 

first night in Birmingham, the concert was repeated on the following day 

at the prestigious BBC Proms. In this position Gražinytė-Tyla is also the 

first woman conductor taking over one of the world’s leading orchestras. 

Combining the dynamism of youth and a profundity beyond her years, she 

is a creative and technical force presenting “the most newsworthy of all 

the 2016 Proms” (The Telegraph).

“The musicality of the new 

director of the CBSO becomes 

evident within 30 seconds of 

her raising her baton” (The 

London Times). This musicality 

shines bright in the concerts 

centre piece, the “spellbinding 

and bewitching” (The Guardian

song cycle let me tell you by 

Hans Abrahamsen. Performed 

by canadian soprano Barbara Hannigan, for whom the piece was written. 

The award-winning cycle centres on Shakespeare’s Ophelia, using only 

words allotted to her in Hamlet. Hannigan performed the shining magical 

score as stunningly brilliant as ever.” (The Guardian)

In the second half of the concert Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla and the CBSO 

vividly explore Tchaikovsky’s dramatic Fourth Symphony. “Technically 

impeccable and just that bit more vivid than usual” (The Guardian).

“So – has the CBSO at last found a worthy successor to Andris Nelsons? 

You bet they have. In just one evening we witnessed exactly what the 

Mirga magic can do. And this is just the start.”(Birmingham Mail) “The 

CBSO has done it again” (The Arts Desk) “A star was born” (Los Angeles 

Times) “exciting times ahead for the CBSO” (The Telegraph).
