If you liked Low and Heroes get this album. It turns the instrumental works on both albums into epic orchestral arrangements. Would make a good soundtrack.
WOW great Glass music
I am typically not interested in Glass, because of his repeating arpeggios drive me nuts. but I gave this five stars because I found him to be very colorful; both melody and rhythm jump at you. Thanks to Bowie and Eno for the themes and inspiration... (I don't own Bowies' "Low") I can't stop listening to this album, buy it now.
Lush strings, haunting melodies, great composition, the two symphonies fit well together.
