Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla launched her Deutsche Grammophon recording career in 2019 with an album devoted to Mieczysław Weinberg’s Symphonies Nos. 2 and 21, released to tie in with the centenary of this neglected composer. Among its many accolades, it was named Gramophone’s Recording of the Year and won Gražinytė-Tyla the Opus Klassik Conductor of the Year award.
Now she continues her mission to broaden awareness of the Warsaw-born composer’s music with Weinberg: Symphonies Nos. 3 & 7 and Flute Concerto No. 1. She is joined by The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen and soloist Kirill Gerstein for Symphony No. 7, and by the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra for the Flute Concerto – with soloist Marie-Christine Zupancic – and Symphony No. 3.
