Gidon Kremer With Mirga Grazinyte-Tyla and Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester, Berlin – December 7, 2017 RBB-Berlin/NHK-Tokyo –

Over to Berlin by way of Tokyo this week. A concert featuring the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester, Berlin led by Mirga Grazinyte-Tyla, Gidon Kremer, violin.

The concert starts with a performance of the Violin concerto by Mieczyslaw Weinberg, followed by Prelude #24 from 24 Preludes, also by Weinberg. The concert concludes with Sibelius’ Lemminakäinen Suite, op. 22.

It was all recorded on December 7, 2017 and re-broadcast by NHK in Tokyo on June 8, 2018.

It’s always wonderful to make new discoveries, and Mirga Grazinyte-Tyla is one of those discoveries.

Mirga Grazinyte-Tyla was named Music Director of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra in February 2016 following in the footsteps of Sir Simon Rattle, Sakari Oramo and Andris Nelsons. Her Music Directorship was extended through the 2020-21 season. Winner of the 2012 Salzburg Festival Young Conductors Award, she subsequently made her debut with the Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra in a symphonic concert at the Salzburger Festspiele.
Recent highlights include numerous European tours with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, performances with the London Symphony Orchestra, the NDR Elbphilharmonie, the Swedish Radio Orchestra, Filharmonica della Scalla, Los Angeles Philharmonic, and the National Symphony Orchestra.
Gražinyte-Tyla has electrified audiences as a guest conductor all over the world. In Europe, she has collaborated with the Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra, the Beethoven Orchestra Bonn, the Deutsche Radiophilharmonie, the Choir of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, the MDR Symphony Orchestra, as well as the Chamber Orchestras of Vienna, the Danish National Symphony Orchestra, the Mozarteum Orchestra and the Camerata Salzburg, and the Orchestra of the Komische Oper in Berlin. At the Kremerata Baltica, she has enjoyed a dynamic collaboration with Gidon Kremer on numerous European tours. She has led operas in Heidelberg, Salzburg, Komische Oper Berlin, and Bern, where she served as Kapellmeister. In North America, she has worked with the orchestras of Philadelphia, Seattle and San Diego and has led the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra in her Carnegie Hall debut in May of 2018.
With the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Gražinyte-Tyla was a Dudamel Fellow in the 2012-13 season, Assistant Conductor (2014-16), and Associate Conductor (2016-17).

She is going from strength the strength and her engagements and collaborations read like a who’s who. Needless to say, she’s a star on the rise.

Gidon Kremer is certainly no stranger to the Music world or to this website. He has performed works by Astor Piazzolla (in the Hommage à Piazzolla recordings), George Enescu, Alban Berg, Dmitri Shostakovich, Béla Bartók, Philip Glass, Alfred Schnittke, Victor Kissine, Mieczysław Weinberg, Arthur Lourié and John Adams. He also performed works by Leonid Desyatnikov, Alexander Raskatov, Alexander Vustin, Lera Auerbach, Pēteris Vasks, Arvo Pärt, Victoria Poleva, Valentyn Sylvestrov, Stevan Kovacs Tickmayer. Among the many composers who have dedicated works to him are Sofia Gubaidulina (Offertorium) and Luigi Nono (La lontananza nostalgica utopica futura), Alfred Schnittke, Giya Kancheli, Victor Kissine.

Great concert – turn it up, relax and enjoy.
