City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra

 

The electrifying young Lithuanian conductor Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla, a former Dudamel Fellow and associate conductor at the Los Angeles Philharmonic, was appointed music director of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra in 2016, following in the footsteps of Simon Rattle and Andris Nelsons.

Her tenure has been one of unqualified success, generating excitement among live audiences and critics worldwide. She brings the CBSO to Ann Arbor as part of a limited US tour with cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason performing Elgar’s Cello Concerto, composed in the aftermath of World War I. The orchestra had a close association with Elgar, who conducted the ensemble’s very first concert over a century ago, in 1920. The program also includes an abbreviated orchestral rendering of Thomas Adès’s third opera, based on Luis Buñuel’s 1962 surreal film about a collection of society characters who find themselves inexplicably trapped together at a post-opera party. The CBSO “brilliantly captured the profound, uncanny disquiet that makes [the film] so unforgettable.” (Bachtrack)

Program

Benjamin Britten Four Sea Interludes from Peter Grimes
Edward Elgar Cello Concerto in e minor, Op. 85
Thomas Adès The Exterminating Angel Symphony
Claude Debussy La mer
