David Bowie's Blackstar, live in Barcelona
No matter David Bowie died on January 10 last year; his music keeps evolving and shining on in new shapes and textures. Bowie’s most recent album, “Blackstar,” as well as his all-time classics “Space Oddity” and “Let’s Dance,” were brought back to life on Thursday 14 July by the Barcelona Symphony and Catalonia National Orchestra (OBC).
Directed by the American composer Evan Zipory and with Maya Beiser as the soloist cello, the orchestra played Bowie’s last record from beginning to end. “I realized his voice is in the same singing range than a cello, and that his last record was very colorful and so much like an orchestra already,” said Zipory after addressing the public at Barcelona’s Auditori.
