Birmingham prepares tour of the centurymain
The City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra is to have its first US tour of the 21st century this October – the first, in fact, since 1998.
Music Director Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla will conduct concertos with Sheku Kanneh-Mason (Elgar) and Gidon Kremer (Weinberg). The tour will also roll out Thomas Adès’ Angel Symphony, to be premiered in Birmingham this May, alongside music by Debussy, Ravel and Bartok.
Two Carnegie Hall dates were announced last night.
