City of Birmingham Orchestra (2G)

CITY OF BIRMINGHAM ORCHESTRA under Gražinytė- Mirga Tyla
Seemingly effortless

21 March 2022, Elbphilharmonie, Great Hall

She is one of the few outstanding female principal conductors worldwide. The fact that Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla has seemingly effortlessly risen to the top in a traditional male domain makes her a role model for many young female conductors. And she is undoubtedly one of the most exciting artists of the present day. Cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason is also aware of his role model function. Only a few years ago, he was the first black musician to win the BBC's classical music competition and is now on his way to becoming an internationally sought-after musician. Casually, almost casually, he presents the versatility of his instrument like no other. Following on from the album "Inspiration", which was produced in collaboration with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, the two exceptional musicians are once again on stage together and make a clear statement that diversity is the way to go.
