4- 6 May. Conductor Mirga Granzinyte-Tyla, who has taken English concert-going audiences by storm, conducts two Debussy compositions (Tre Preludes and La Mer) in honour of the centenary of the composer's death, as well as music by Mozart and Messiaen. The Mozart piano concerto is performed by Francesco Piedmontesi.
Lithuanian Granzinyte-Tyla is the musical director of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO) which has been the launch of many famous careers, Simon Rattle being just one.
Her energetic and dramatic conducting is exciting to watch and it is worth checking some YouTube videos to see her face-on, from the orchestra's view point.
Before taking up the post in Birmingham she was with Gustav Dudamel and the Los Angelese Philarmonic as assistant and then associate conductor. Earlier this year she announced that she and her partner are expecting a baby in August. Auditorium Parco della Musica, Viale P. de Coubertin 30, www.auditorium.com.
