Kronos Remembers David Bowie

We are deeply saddened by the death of David Bowie. We were thrilled to perform his “Space Oddity” with him at Carnegie Hall 14 years ago as part of Philip Glass’ annual Tibet House Benefit. Performing this iconic music with its composer is a memory we treasure. We join millions of others around the world in honoring the life and work of one of the most creative artists of the last century. He has our deepest admiration.
