film by Tod Browning, music by Philip Glass played by Michael Riesman
The film is a horror classic. In 1998, Universal asked American composer Philip Glass to write a score for this cult film. This sumptuous result blends perfectly with the black and white images and charmingly old-fashioned plot. This is the magical formula that pianist, composer and conductor Michael Riesman will (re)create to better accompany this legendary pre-WWII Hollywood film.
