Notes & Reviews:
This world premiere recording is conducted by Dennis Russell Davies and performed by the Bruckner Orchester Linz. After a series of symphonies that featured text and voices, Philip Glass was also asked by Davies to "think of the orchestra as a collection of virtuoso instruments as you would find in a concerto formation. Symphony No. 8 starts from this point in presenting ideas involved with timbre, density, structure and melody." The great attraction of the work is the unpredictable orchestration.
