Seattle Symphony Media Wins Third Grammy

Seattle Symphony’s Third Volume of Dutilleux’s orchestral music was named Best Surround Sound Album.

Seattle Symphony Director of Audio & Recording Dmitriy Lipay has won the Grammy for Best Surround Sound Album at the 2017 Grammy Awards.

“I’m thrilled to see Dmitriy win this Grammy,” Seattle Symphony Music Director Ludovic Morlot said. “His work on all our recording projects is absolutely world-class and he’s a tremendous colleague. The Grammy for Best Surround Sound isn’t only for classical music and could be given to any genre, so it’s especially exciting for him to win this award for our label.”

Part of a three-disc, multi-year recording project, Morlot and the Seattle Symphony released the third volume of orchestral works of Henri Dutilleux on Seattle Symphony Media on August 12, 2016. The recording includes studio recordings of Sur le même accord featuring Grammy Award-winning violinist Augustin Hadelich, Les citations, Mystère de l’instant, and a live performance of Timbres, espace, mouvement.

“…a thing of astonishing beauty.” – WQXR Radio
