In a season trailer with NYC-Arts, the New York Phil president says: ‘One of the most gifted conductors I have seen in my career. Her name is Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla. Hard to pronounce, so I call her MGT.
‘When I saw Mirga conduct it reminded me of the impact it had when I saw Gustavo for the first time.’
Mirga will make her NY Phil debut next season.
