Seattle Symphony Wins Gramophone’s “Orchestra of the Year” Award

“‘Listen boldly’ enjoins the logo which the Seattle Symphony introduced in 2011 to mark the beginning of Music Director Ludovic Morlot’s tenure. In the years since, that challenge has been directed not just to their audience but to the organisation itself. Listening boldly means acknowledging the need to reimagine its own identity and taking steps to reposition the SSO within an increasingly compartmentalised cultural landscape. All of which the orchestra has done – and continues to do – with results that have made the music world at large take notice.”
