Glass, Philip / Kronos Quartet

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Glass, Philip / Kronos Quartet - Mishima Mishima
Soundtrack New - LP 79113 Nonesuch
Sealed 1985 Soundtrack. Clean Cut Out Hole. “Philip Glass' Soundtrack To Paul Schrader's Retelling Of The Life Of Japanese Author Yukio Mishima Is One Of His Strongest Early Scores, One That Retains His Essential "Glass-Ness," But Begins To Bring In Elements Of Narrative, Creating Distinct Sounds For Each Of The Sections Of Schrader's Non-Linear Storytelling Structure. So For Mishima's Final Day -- When He Tried To Stage A Military Coup And Ended Up Committing Suicide -- Glass Creates Tense, Suspenseful Music With Dashes Of Military Drumming. For The Sections Retelling Mishima's Short Story Kyoko's House, He Recasts His Main Theme Into A Composition For '50s-Style Surf-Rock Ensemble -- Bizarre Stuff, Indeed. This Is Stirring, Potent Music That Never Once Condescends To Throw In Some Sort Of Japanese Instrument. As A Side Note, The Ever-Adept Kronos Quartet Handle Much Of The String Sections Of This Album.” – Ted Mills, AMG... more details
