Mirga Grazinyte-tyla - The British Project
City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Mirga Grazinyte-Tyla
Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra began the acclaimed "The British Project" on Deutsche Grammophon last October with an e-album of Britten's Sinfonia da Requiem. Earlier this year, a second digital release followed with the Symphonic Suite from Walton's opera Troilus and Cressida, which The Times of London described in its five-star review as "exuberant, lush and sumptuous". "The British Project" now appears on CD, with works by Britten and Walton framed by Elgar's Sospiri and Vaughan Williams' Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis. Due for release on 16 July 2021, the album showcases the extraordinary artistry of the Lithuanian conductor and her City Of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.
