Dracula

After 68 years the movie Dracula at last has a musical score. When the now classic horror film, Dracula terrified audiences in 1931, it did so without a musical soundtrack. Universal Pictures has now released the film on home video with a score written by composer Phillip Glass and performed by the Kronos Quartet. Glass and the Quartet are performing the new Dracula soundtrack in a limited tour. Noah Adams spoke to Glass before earlier this week before a performance at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. (8:00)

Music heard before, during and after this piece was from the soundtrack "DRACULA" by Phillip Glass and the Kronos Quartet, on the Nonesuch label
