Dracula

(1998) 67'

Music by Philip Glass

CAST:
string quartet (2vln, va, vc)

COMMISSION:
Universal Family and Home Entertainment Production for inclusion as part of Universal's Classic Monsters collection

SYNOPSIS:
Music for the 1931 horror film classic Dracula by Tod Browning starring Béla Lugosi.

NOTES:
The film is considered a classic. I felt the score needed to evoke the feeling of the world of the 19th century — for that reason I decided a string quartet would be the most evocative and effective. I wanted to stay away from the obvious effects associated with horror films. With Kronos we were able to add depth to the emotional layers of the film.

— Philip Glass

Suite from "Dracula" is a 28 minute arrangement by Michael Riesman for piano and strings.
