- Michael Riesman (Piano)
Notes & Reviews:
In 2004 Orange Mountain Music released an album of solo piano transcriptions of Philip Glass' Oscar and Golden Globe nominated score to The Hours. These transcriptions were done by Glass' longtime Music Director and pianist Michael Riesman. Riesman's solo piano transcription of The Hours score proved so successful that Orange Mountain Music was inspired to approach Riesman again to make an arrangement of Glass' haunting score to Todd Browning's 1931 classic Dracula which starred Bela Lugosi. Glass' original score was written for string quartet and was recorded and toured by the Kronos Quartet. This new arrangement of the score is treated to a truly virtuosic performance by Michael Riesman and includes a previously unrecorded track which was composed by Glass but was left out of the soundtrack recording. Riesman's extraordinary playing brings life and phenomenal craftsmanship to a seemingly timeless musical score.Notes & Reviews:
