Music fans around the world are mourning the death of David Bowie today. Perhaps less known is his connection with composer Philip Glass. Glass used the music of David Bowie and Brian Eno in his Low Symphony and in his Heroes Symphony. Low and Heroes are the names of David Bowie albums, tracks of which were used in the symphonies by Glass. Below are the original songs associated with the first movements of each of the symphonies (Subterraneans and Heroes; the preceding links are to Wikipedia articles).
Bowie, Eno: Heroes
Glass: Symphony No 4 “Heroes” 1. Heroes.
With thanks to reader Louis B. for reminding me of this connection.
