Glass/Bowie/Eno: Heroes & Low Symphonies

Album Summary

>Glass, Philip : Heroes Symphony
>Glass, Philip : Low Symphony, for orchestra
Performers Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

These two best selling symphonies by Philip Glass, based on the music of Brian Eno and David Bowie, are the natural choice for a '2 for 1' collection. Low Symphony is based on themes from David Bowie and Brian Eno's landmark recording, 'Low'. Bowie and Eno's 'Heroes' remains one of rock's most chilling and bleak recordings. Glass adapts these tunes in a respectful manner, adding in his unique compositional style, creating new works that led to surprising musical conclusions.
