Mirga Grazinyte-Tyla – Going For The impossible
© Chris Christodoulou
Mirga Grazinyte-Tyla belongs to a new generation of conductors. And while only twenty years ago female conductors were still the exception, today more and more are pushing their way to the top of this highly competitive field. With many awards to her honour, the talented Grazinyte-Tyla celebrates international success and acclaim. This documentary tells the story of her career and observes her on her first steps as new chief conductor of the Birmingham Symphony Orchestra where she succeeds Andris Nelsons and Sir Simon Rattle. A strong emphasis will be put on her native country Lithuania where her musical roots lay.
