Seattle Symphony creates ‘hospital grade environment’ to bring back the music

The nomination is for Music Director Thomas Dausgaard and the symphony for the live recording of Richard Strauss’ “Also sprach Zarathustra” and Alexander Scriabin’s “The Poem of Ecstasy.”

“It is exciting and rewarding for us at the Seattle Symphony to see that the orchestra’s great work is being recognized again,” said Krishna Thiagarajan, symphony president and CEO, in a written release. “The honor is especially gratifying as we emerge from the disruption of the pandemic, and it is testament to Thomas Dausgaard’s brilliance on stage. We are happy for it to add to the Symphony’s history of Grammy recognition over these past years.”

The album that’s nominated was recorded live in Benaroya Hall and produced by Grammy Award winning recording engineer Dmitriy Lipay.

This latest nomination marks the second time that the partnership between Dausgaard the Seattle Symphony has been recognized by the Grammy Awards. The Danish conductor and symphony were nominated for a 2019 award for their work on Nielsen’s Symphonies Nos. 3 and 4.
