David Bowie died yesterday of cancer at the age of 69. As a popular musician and actor, his influence was felt everywhere – even classical music. He surprised everyone in 1978 by releasing a recording of Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf. In 1996, composer Phillip Glass based his “Low Symphony” on the music of David Bowie, and others.
