Kicking off Halloween month, the 590th
Soundtrack of the Week is
Dracula music by John Williams!
The “Main Title and Storm Sequence” starts things out very dramatically with
a stirring theme that Williams threads through the score.
The arrangements and instrumentation reminded me of some of the music for
Raiders of the Lost Ark and I assume that Angela Morley made significant contributions.
There’s a great love theme heard in “For Mina” and some pulse-accelerating
high-tension writing for “Grave Trampling and the Asylum”.
And of course there’s suspenseful, eerie and creepy music to accompany
scenes like “Into the Crypt”, “The Attack” and “Casting a Spell and The Visitation”.
