Starring Bela Lugosi (Tod Browning, 1931). Glass composed the intense and sweeping Dracula score for the Kronos Quartet when he was asked by Universal to create a score for this early talkie. Appearing together live along with the original horror classic shown in its entirety, Glass and Kronos perform a concert of one of the most intense and atmospheric scores Philip Glass has ever written. Dracula has also been arranged for the Philip Glass Ensemble.
DRACULA...was fitted with a tactful, lyrical Philip Glass score...with signal success. Glass's pulsing music was a perfect match for the old bloodsucker. By filling long silent passages with classic emotion in a modern vein, it restored DRACULA's urgency and dream-like dignity.
