“…A quintessential Glass work and a canny homage to the great horror scores of yore.” – Premiere Magazine
For more than 40 years the Kronos Quartet has pursued a singular artistic vision combining fearless exploration with a continual re-imagining of the string quartet experience. One of the most lionized groups of our time, Kronos has released more than 50 recordings of uncommon breadth and creativity, collaborated with the most intriguing and accomplished composers and performers, and commissioned more than 850 works and arrangements.
Among the most influential composers ever to work in film, Philip Glass has reinvented the relationship between music and the moving image. For Dracula, Glass created an intense and atmospheric score for the Kronos Quartet, bringing new life to Universal Pictures’ 1931 classic by Tod Browning. Here they appear together alongside horror film icon Bela Lugosi in a riveting synthesis of music concert and film.
