Description: It really is his birthday! Philip Glass was born on January 31 -- 75 years ago -- and the American Composers Orchestra commemorates the occasion with the US premiere of his newest symphony. It's a genre that Glass has been focusing on since 1992, when he completed his "Low" Symphony based on the 1977 David Bowie album.
