RICHARD STRAUSS: Also sprach Zarathustra
ALEXANDER SCRIABIN: The Poem of Ecstasy
Thomas Dausgaard and the Seattle Symphony release thought-provoking live performances of two extraordinary orchestral works composed near the turn of the 20th century: Richard Strauss’ Also sprach Zarathustra and Alexander Scriabin’s The Poem of Ecstasy. Recorded in the stunning acoustics of Benaroya Hall, these bold, colorful scores celebrate the search for creative meaning and the triumph of the human spirit.
