Orange Mountain Music publica el álbum con la «Sinfonía nº 12 “Lodger”» de Philip Glass.

Philip Glass had premiered seven operas before he decided to compose his First Symphony “Low” in 1992. And for that event he chose to take as his starting point Low, the first of the albums David Bowie made with Brian Eno while he was living in Berlin. In 1996 he composed his Symphony No. 4, again taking Bowie as a reference point, his album Heroes – the second of the Berlin trilogy – but Glass got stuck when it came to completing his equivalent Bowie trilogy and didn’t compose his Symphony No. 12 ‘Lodger’ until Bowie died in 2016. Now that album has just seen the light of day, featuring French-Beninese singer Angélique Kidjo. On the Rockdelux website you can read my full review of this recently released album.
