Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla conducts symphonies by Mieczysław Weinberg
For her first recording with Deutsche Grammophon, the Lithuanian conductor offers haunting accounts of two symphonies by the Polish-born Soviet composer, Mieczysław Weinberg.

The appearance of this performance on a major prestige label will surely prove one of the highlights of this, his centenary year…It takes a performance of fierce concentration and absolute dedication to ensure this music’s hold on an audience…the CBSO, with its newly appointed fireball Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla, is teamed up with Kremerata Baltica, lending extraordinary depth and power to the string sound…All in all, this has to be one of the most important symphonic releases of the year.
