Symphony no.4 'Heroes'


Sinfonieorchester Basel


Dennis Russell Davies


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 and Brian Eno. 

This new recording, conducted by Glass champion Dennis Russell Davies, is a shimmering rendition of the work. Only the third recording of the Symphony, it has been 18 years since the last one, recorded was recorded in the studio. 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".
