Minimal: Glass at 75 (Part II) Kronos Quartet and Philip Glass - Dracula
Glasgow Royal Concert Hall : Main Auditorium
Last season Svend Brown introduced a major Minimalism strand to Glasgow Music’s programming, and this season MINIMAL returns to celebrate a very special occasion – the 75th birthday of one of the genre’s founding fathers, Philip Glass. Glasgow Music will devote two mini-festivals to his work – MINIMAL: Glass At 75 (Part I) in October 2011 and MINIMAL: Glass At 75 (Part II) in May 2012, the latter of which featuring two performances by the hugely influential composer and musician.
An unmissable treat for lovers of classic films and classic scores: tonight Glass will appear with the Kronos Quartet for a performance of his own score for Dracula, the classic Universal Pictures 1931 horror film starring Béla Lugosi. Glass’s score is the first ever written for the film, of which the composer himself is a big fan.
