Philip Glass's Symphony No.1 Low is based on the music of David Bowie & Brian Eno.
Composed in 1992, Glass took his departure from Bowie & Eno's beautiful melodies in crafting a
three-movement 46-minute symphony. This new recording conducted by Glass champion Dennis
Russell Davies is a shimmering rendition of the work. Only the second recording of the Symphony,
it's been 20 years since the last one, the previous recording was recorded in the studio sectionally
whereas this new OMM recording was made live in Basel Switzerland and captures the vitality and
evidence of the work as never heard before.
