Event Description

Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra make their first Davies Symphony Hall appearance in a program featuring cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason in Edward Elgar’s rhapsodic Cello Concerto. Two depictions of the sea in its myriad colors and moods by Benjamin Britten and Claude Debussy bookend the concert, while Thomas Adès’ The Exterminating Angel Symphony, based on his absurdist opera, completes it.
