On June 17th, Orange Mountain Music will release an iTunes Exclusive recording of Koyaanisqatsi with Orchestra:
"Orange Mountain Music presents Koyaanisqatsi Live with Orchestra featuring the New York Philharmonic, the Philip Glass Ensemble, and the Collegiate Chorale under the direction of conductor Michael Riesman.
As part of the festivities surrounding the 75th birthday year of composer Philip Glass in 2012, the New York Philharmonic hosted two sold out evenings of "Koyaanisqatsi – Live with Orchestra," its first time performing the music of Philip Glass.
Glass composed the score for the classic film in the early 1980s and its first performance live-to-film in New York actually took place at Avery Fisher Hall with a free lance orchestra. Since that time, the Philip Glass Ensemble has been touring the piece as part of its active repertoire. In 2009 the Los Angeles Philharmonic commissioned a new arrangement of the score with full orchestra and live chorus to be performed at the Hollywood Bowl in what was Glass' Bowl debut.
This new recording captures the entire score, blending the combined forces of the Philip Glass Ensemble, the Collegiate Chorale (James Bagwell, director) and the New York Philharmonic under the baton of PGE Music Director Michael Riesman."
