Product Description

Orange Mountain Music presents a new recording by the Basel Sinfonieorchester of Philip Glass' Symphony No.4 'Heroes' based on the music of David Bowie & Brian Eno. Composed in 1996, Glass took his departure from Bowie & Eno's beautiful melodies in crafting a three-movement 44-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 beauty of the work as never heard before. Recorded less than a year after the Orange Mountain Music recording of the companion piece Symphony No.1 'Low', Glass states in discussing the work of Bowie and Eno: 'The continuing influence of these works has secured their stature as part of the new 'classics'; of our time. Just as composers of the past have turned to music of their time to fashion new works, the work of Bowie and Eno became an inspiration and point of departure of symphonies of my own.'
