★★★★★“The 29-year-old Lithuanian has already established a wonderful rapport with the members of the orchestra … Gražinytė-Tyla seems to have that precious conductor’s knack of allowing players all the expressive freedom they want, while still being able to shape every aspect of a performance in exactly the way she wants” The Guardian, August 2016
