Mirga Gražinytė-TylaConductor

After a compelling debut in 2018, the young conductor Mirga Gražinyte-Tyla returns to the podium with De Profundis, written by her Lithuanian countrywoman Raminta Šerkšnyte. This surging, brooding work exploits the richness and color of the Orchestra's strings to the fullest. Principal Flute Jeffrey Khaner is especially pleased to be performing the Nielsen Concerto. “I love the back and forth in the orchestration; it's a lot of fun to play and listen to!” Tchaikovsky's Fourth Symphony was written at a time of intense personal turmoil. He poured all his passion into the work, at times letting traditional symphonic structure take a back seat to his matchless gift for melody. From the fateful opening fanfare to the explosive, folkloric finale, the Fourth is a sonic spectacular.
