Notes and Editorial Reviews
Following their recording of Mahler’s Symphony No. 10, which has been shortlisted for the 2017 Gramophone Awards and described as “a game changer for all concerned,” Thomas Dausgaard and the Seattle Symphony return with electric and superbly played performances of Nielsen’s two most famous symphonies. Dausgaard has championed the music of his countryman throughout his career- and this album marks the beginning of his long-awaited cycle of the great Danish composer’s human and majestic symphonies. With naturalistic imagine, 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.
