The music of Philip Glass' originial and haunting Symphony No. 4 "Heroes"along side an authentic recreation of the Brian Eno produced David Bowie album, Heroes, and Bowies Greatest hits with full orchestra and rock band means one incredible night.
This was a project that I had been thinking about for so long after reading about the friendship between Bowie and Philip Glass. I wanted my audiences to know about it, but I also wanted them to hear how Glass heard Bowie's music and specifically how he then used that to create something totally different, yet audibly completely related through melody, harmony or rhythm. Hearing a movement of the symphony and then the album song, played live, by an incredible band directly after points out the connection in a way that draws audiences in to both classical music and pop music for critical listening and just plain love of the art.
