John Adams is set to conduct the Los Angeles Philharmonic in the premiere of Philip Glass’s Symphony No. 12, “Lodger,” at Walt Disney Concert Hall on Thursday. The work is inspired by Bowie’s 1979 collaboration with Brian Eno and the producer Tony Visconti, the final album in what’s usually called their Berlin trilogy(NYT)

Before the Glass premiere, Adams conducted a terrific performance of his 1982 work, “Grand Pianola Music,” (WAPO) 😯
