Thomas Dausgaard and the Seattle Symphony’s recording of Strauss: Also Sprach Zarathustra; Scriabin: The Poem of Ecstasy is nominated for Best Orchestral Performance at the 2022 GRAMMY® Awards.
The Recording Academy will present the Awards on Monday, January 31, 2022 in its live broadcast on CBS (USA) and streamed live on GRAMMY.com and the Recording Academy’s YouTube channel.
The critically acclaimed album, that BBC Music Magazine hails as “superlatively good” is the recording of Dausgaard and Seattle’s thought-provoking live performances of two extraordinary orchestral works composed near the turn of the 20th century. Recorded in the stunning acoustics of Benaroya Hall, these bold, colorful scores celebrate the search for creative meaning and the triumph of the human spirit. With naturalistic imaging, depth of field and dynamic range, all Seattle Symphony Media recordings have been engineered to audiophile standards and aim to capture as realistically as possible the sound of the orchestra performing on the Benaroya Hall stage. Digital content will be available on stereo, 96k 24-bit high resolution and 5.1 surround sound.
