Several great musical minds and perhaps even the ghost of a Thin White Duke will be hovering in and around Disney Hall this weekend as composer John Adams conducts pianist Orli Shaham and L.A. Philharmonic in the mesmerizing cycles of his own dream-laden Grand Pianola Music, following Gabriella Smith's seashore-inspired Tumblebird Contrails. Then Adams stirs up the world premiere of Philip Glass' Symphony No. 12, Lodger, featuring Beninese vocalist Angélique Kidjo. It's the third of three works by Glass riffing on David Bowie and Brian Eno's Berlin Trilogy. Glass' unfolding, repetitive and shifting patterns can be compelling, and his previous extrapolations from Bowie's Low and Heroes have taken flight with their own dramatic grandeur.
