SEATTLE SYMPHONY MEDIA RELEASES ELECTRIFYING PERFORMANCES OF DANISH COMPOSER CARL NIELSEN’S TWO MOST UNFORGETTABLE SYMPHONIES: 
SYMPHONY NO. 3, “SINFONIA ESPANSIVA” 
SYMPHONY NO. 4, “THE INEXTINGUISHABLE” 

Worldwide Release November 10, 2017

Available for Pre-sale October 27 on Amazon and iTunes

Thomas Dausgaard and the Seattle Symphony present electric performances of two thought-provoking symphonies by Dausgaard’s fellow countryman, Danish composer Carl Nielson. One transports to an expansive inner realm where the scope of the mind is boundless, while the other rejoices in the enduring spirit of man and nature. Together, they reflect our collective human experience as we navigate the internal and external worlds that surround us.

Thomas Dausgaard’s latest Seattle Symphony Media live recording of Nielsen’s Symphonies No. 3, “Sinfonia espansiva,” and No. 4, “The Inextinguishable,” marks the beginning of his long-awaited cycle of the great Danish composer’s human and majestic symphonies. The Seattle Times review of the Fourth Symphony from that performance stated, “Dausgaard underscored the drama in the mighty outbursts from nearly every section; elegant descending passages in thirds, broad unison statements, mysteriously hushed string passages and a blazing finale.”
