Philip Glass Low Symphony on Import 180g LP

From the Music of David Bowie & Brian Eno

First Ever Vinyl Issue

Low Symphony, composed by Philip Glass in the spring of 1992, is based on the record Low by David Bowie and Brian Eno, first released in 1977. Glass took themes from three of the instrumentals on the original and, combining them with his own material, used them as the basis of three movements of the Low Symphony. Movement One comes from "Subterraneans," Movement Two from "Some Are," which was not featured on Bowie's original recording, and Movement Three from "Warszawa."

Low Symphony was performed by the Brooklyn Philharmonic Orchestra under the batons of Dennis Russell Davies, principal conductor, and Karen Kamensek, assistant conductor. Philip Glass allowed ideas of Bowie and Eno, who worked together on Low, to influence how he worked on the music, leading to surprising musical conclusions and becoming a real collaboration between the music of all three maestros. 180g vinyl pressing with insert and deluxe PVC sleeve.
