1998 Score to the 1931 Film Mastered by Michael Riesman & Available on Vinyl for the First Time!

Orange Mountain is pleased to announce for the first time on vinyl Philip Glass's 1998 score to the 1931 film Dracula starring Bela Lugosi. For his new score, Glass tapped the all-star Kronos Quartet and wrote specifically for them. In the late-1990s Universal Pictures approached the composer to write a new score for one of its classic monster movies. Glass chose to compose a score for Tod Browning's 1931 Dracula because it never had an original score. He composed the work for string quartet to evoke an ancient sound and now almost 20 years later Glass and Kronos continue to perform the music live to film around the world. In the end Glass's music gave the film new life, perhaps adding something that had been missing before there was music: structure and pacing and above all a new sense of mystery and soul. Dracula was originally available on Nonesuch in the late-1990s. This is the first time Dracula is available on vinyl.

Music by Philip Glass and Kronos Quartet:
David Harrington, violin
John Sherba, violin
Hank Dutt, viola
Joan Jeanrenaud, cello

• 180 gram double vinyl in gatefold jacket
