The Well-Tempered Ear

Classical music: Keep Your Eye On – young conductor Mirga Grazinyte-Tyla | January 5, 2016

By Jacob Stockinger

Female conductors are getting less rare these days.

But they are still an exception in the largely male world of conducting.

So when The Ear saw and heard the following report – by Harry Smith for NBC’s Today Show — about the young firecracker and Lithuanian female conductor Mirga Grazinyte-Tyla, who is with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, he thought it would be good to share with his readers.

    • Dear Irmgard, you seem to be still busy in commenting excellent musicians. I agree and take the chance of contacting you again whenever you want to talk about the musicians of the Bittar family. Helga
