Glass: Symphony No.1
Orange Mountain Music presents a new recording by the Basel Sinfonieorchester of Philip Glass's Symphony No.1, subtitled Low, a work based on the music of popular music artists David Bowie & Brian Eno. Composed in 1992, Glass took his departure from Bowie & Eno's beautiful melodies in crafting a three-movement symphony. This new recording, only the second set to disc, is conducted by Glass champion Dennis Russell Davies and offers a shimmering rendition of the work.
