"Low" Symphony

Sealed brand new 180 gram audiophile vinyl. Made in the EU.

Symphony No. 1 "Low", also known as the "Low" Symphony, is a symphony by Philip Glass based on David Bowie's album Low.

In 1996, Glass based another symphony on David Bowie's following album "Heroes".

The symphony was composed in 1992 and scored for full orchestra with 2 flutes, piccolo, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, E-flat clarinet, bass clarinet, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, percussion, harp, piano and strings (including 8 first violins, 6 second violins, 4 violas, 4 cellos and 2 double basses).

The symphony has three movements:

Glass did not base the second movement on the original album, but rather a remastered version with the track "Some Are", which did not feature on Bowie's original recording.
