This recording is part of a three-disc, multi-year recording project on Seattle Symphony Media, the orchestra’s in-house record label. The recording features live performances of Symphony No. 2 and Métaboles, and was also nominated for Best Orchestral Performance and Best Engineered Album for the 2016 Grammys. The third and final recording, along with a commemorative box set of all three recordings, will be released later in August in commemoration of Dutilleux’s 100th anniversary.” –You You Xia, Public Relations Manager
