Kronos Quartet - Dr. Van Helsing & Dracula (composed by Philip Glass)

Dracula had no musical score when it was first released, apart from a few excerpts from Swan Lake. In 1998, Philip Glass composed a score for the film, which was performed by the Kronos Quartet. Glass:

“The film is considered a classic. I felt the score needed to evoke the feeling of the world of the 19th century. For that reason I decided a string quartet would be the most evocative and effective. I wanted to stay away from the obvious effects associated with horror films. With [the Kronos Quartet], we were able to add depth to the emotional layers of the film.”
