    Dracula

    • Year Released: 1999
    Dracula is a soundtrack performed by the Kronos Quartet, with music composed by Philip Glass, for the 1931 film Dracula. The movie (directed by Tod Browning and starring Bela Lugosi) could be shown to audiences both as a silent movie and as a talkie, though conversation was limited to basic narrative elements. Unusually, it did not have a specific score and only two pieces of music on its soundtrack: Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake during the opening credits, and the overture of Wagner's Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg during a scene at an opera. Glass was commissioned to write the score by Universal Studios Home Entertainment, which released the movie with the Glass-soundtrack on VHS and DVD in 1999. According to Glass, the choice of chamber music played by a string quartet rather than an orchestral score followed from the movie's setting, "libraries and drawing rooms and gardens." Kronos and Glass (on piano) performed the score during viewings of the movie across the United States in 1999 and 2000 to promote the album. Other promotion efforts by Universal, which was trying to "reinvigorate and re-market" their Classical Monsters catalog, included discounts for buyers of multiple CDs, and

    Glassworks

    • Year Released: 1982
    Glassworks is a chamber music work of six movements by Philip Glass. It is regarded as being a characteristically Glass-like work. Following his larger-scale concert and stage works, Glassworks was Philip Glass's successful attempt to create a more pop-oriented "Walkman-suitable" work, with considerably shorter and more accessible pieces written for the recording studio. The studio album was released in 1982. "Opening" uses triplet eighth notes, over duple eighth notes, over whole notes in 4/4. Formally it consists of three groups of four measure phrases of three to four chords repeated four times each, ABC:||ABC, which then merges with the next movement, "Floe" with the entrance of the horns. "Floe" begins with open fifths in the horns while the other members of the ensemble enter with oscillating arpeggiating figures (primarily outlining a Major 7th chord). There are two formulaically identical sections to the movement. Although rhythmically driven, the melodic implications of "floe" occur somewhat coincidentally by orchestration. There is no modulation, but the harmonic progression simply repeats over and over again. The layering of contrasting timbres is characteristic of the

    Passages

    • Year Released: 1990
    Passages is collaborative chamber music studio album co-composed by Ravi Shankar and Philip Glass, released in 1990 through Atlantic Records. The album's content is a hybrid of Shankar's signature sitar playing and Hindustani classical music and Glass' distinct American minimal contemporary classical style. The album reached a peak position of number three on Billboard's Top World Music Albums chart. "Offering", the album's opening track, begins with a slow introduction before the saxophone establishes the Shankar raga melody. Two additional saxophones join, followed by an extended middle section at a faster tempo, all before returning to the starting theme. The title of the second track, "Sadhanipa", is derived from the solfège notes (swara) "Sa Dha Ni Pa" from the Indian octave (saptak) based on the first four tones of Glass' melody, "Do La Ti So" (D-B-C-A). Allmusic's Jim Brenholts awarded the album four of five stars, calling the music "brilliant". Benholts wrote that Shankar's "smooth" style and Glass' dissonant orchestrations mixed well, and recommended Passages to fans of other minimalist composers such as John Cage, Steve Reich and Terry Riley.

    • Year Released: 1989

    The Truman Show: Music from the Motion Picture

    • Year Released: 1998
    The Truman Show is the original soundtrack, released on the Milan Records label, of the 1998 Academy Award-nominated and Golden Globe-winning film The Truman Show starring Jim Carrey, Ed Harris, Laura Linney, Peter Krause and Brian Delate. The film was directed by Peter Weir, who stated that he selected music that the creator of The Truman Show itself, Christof, would have chosen. Based on the fictional Christof's musical taste, Weir selected music from composer Philip Glass, and recruited the young Australian composer Burkhard Dallwitz to complement those tracks with a score of his own. The original score was composed by Burkhard Dallwitz, and the album won the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score in 1998. The majority of tracks contained on the album were composed by Dallwitz, with other tracks selected from Philip Glass compositions, among others. "Anthem - Part 2" was taken from Powaqqatsi, "The Beginning" and "Living Waters" were both taken from Anima Mundi, and "Opening" was taken from Mishima, all of which were soundtracks composed by Philip Glass. Glass also composed the original tracks "Dreaming of Fiji", "Truman Sleeps" and "Raising the Sail" for the film.

    The Truman Show: Music from the Motion Picture

    • Year Released: 1998
    The Truman Show: Music from the Motion Picture is a soundtrack to the film of the same name, and it was composed by Burkhard Dallwitz. Dallwitz was hired after Peter Weir received a tape of his work while in Australia for the post-production. Some parts of the soundtrack were composed by Philip Glass, including four pieces which appeared in his previous works (Powaqqatsi, Anima Mundi, and Mishima, the opening movement from the latter of which appears over the end credits in The Truman Show). Glass also appears very briefly in the film as one of the in-studio composer/performers. Both Glass and Dallwitz won a Golden Globe for Best Original Score. Also featured in the film are Frederic Chopin's "Romance-Larghetto" from his first piano concerto, performed by Arthur Rubinstein, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's "Rondo Alla Turca" from his Piano Sonata No. 11 in A Major, performed by Wilhelm Kempff, Wojciech Kilar's "Father Kolbe's Preaching" performed by the Orchestra Philharmonique National de Pologne and "20th Century Boy" performed by rockabilly band The Big Six.
