Symphony No. 12 "Lodger" is the twelfth symphony by the American composer Philip Glass. The work was commissioned by the Los Angeles Philharmonic and will premiere January 10, 2019, with John Adams conducting the LA Phil at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles.[1] The European premiere will follow in May 2019 with a performance by the London Contemporary Orchestra at Southbank Centre.[2]

Based on David Bowie's 1979 album Lodger, it completes Glass's trilogy of symphonies based on Bowie's Berlin Trilogy of albums, which previously inspired Glass's first and fourth symphonies, based on Low and "Heroes", respectively.[2] Glass had indicated his intent to write this third work as early as 1997, when he told the Los Angeles Times that he had discussed approaches to its composition with Bowie.[3]
