The conductor Mirga Gražinté-Tyla gave birth to a baby boy at the end of August.

The news has been kept private until now.

She will return to work in Birmingham in the middle of November.



  • Whatever one thinks of female conductors, on the point of physical procreation they are definitely superior.

  • Bruce says:

    Congratulations to her!

  • RW2013 says:

    here’s wishing many, many more…

  • Brian says:

    Interesting that a public figure can give birth and keep it a secret for 2 months. You’d think she would have at least posted some photos on Facebook at some point.

  • PAUL CANNON says:


  • For the baby I hope she will refrain from performing anything with too much dissonance or with an expressionistic character, which could jeopardize the child’s emotional development towards a balanced personality. We know from children from modernist performers that they usually end-up on the psychiatrist’s coach (offspring of the Kontarski Brothers, the Kronos Quartet, the players of the Ensemble Intercontemptorain).

    And then, the danger that the child will suddenly decide to escape its enclosures during something like Mahler VI is not imaginary (the big bang on the wooden box, for instance, could provoke such disasters).
