David Bowie: The Berlin Trilogy

A celebration of David Bowie, based on the albums of the Berlin Trilogy: Low, Heroes and Lodger.

Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, Magnus Carlson, Motoboy, Jennie Abrahamson, Gothenburg Symphonic Choir and conductor Hans Ek conducts David Bowie’s classic songs from his successful career, with a natural finale in Where Are We Now from 2013, where Bowie looks back on his time in Berlin.

Music made with producer Brian Eno in a creative explosion where the Berlin Wall became a symbolic watershed for David Bowie’s creativity, going from punchy pop tunes to symphonically coloured, electronic music. Heroes gave a whole generation a voice, and became a powerful battle cry for all those who wanted to shape their lives on their own terms. Hans Ek is the initiator and has orchestrated this tribute concert.

Recorded for GSOplay in September 2016. To pay tribute to David Bowie, we choose to publish this magical concert on the two-year anniversary since his passing away.
