Mirga Gražinyte-Tyla has taken the symphonic world by storm; she was just 29 years old when she became music director of the City of Birmingham Symphony in 2016. (The Guardian: Her “combination of precision, poise and power is remarkable.”) Hear what all the well-deserved excitement is about as she makes her Philadelphia Orchestra debut. Pianist Menahem Pressler also made an important debut here in Philadelphia: After fleeing Nazi Germany with his family, he gave his first American performances with Eugene Ormandy in 1947 at the age of 23. In the 70 years since, he's toured the world as a leading soloist and founder of the revered Beaux Arts Trio. Mahler's Fourth Symphony is based on one of his own songs, an ethereal depiction of a child's vision of paradise. Heavenly!
