LUDOVICO EINAUDI - The most celebrated European pianist and composer in contemporary classical music, Einaudi has contributed to the soundtracks of major films including Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan and Clint Eastwood’s J. Edgar. A master craftsman and performer, he’s also become a concert sensation. He was the first classical pianist to reach the top 15 on the UK album charts, and last year he expanded his sonic purview with Elements, a project for piano, electronics, and orchestra that evokes the natural world with music that germinates from cellular melodic fragments - music he brings to this performance.

Philip Glass and the Kronos Quartet: DRACULA - As part of Philip Glass' 80th birthday celebration, the GRAMMY-winning, Bay Area based Kronos Quartet and the composer himself perform his score to accompany a screening of Tod Browning’s iconic 1931 horror classic Dracula, starring Bela Lugosi. Called “one of Glass' most lyrical, moving works” by Billboard, his Dracula score was commissioned in 1999 for the Universal home video release of the film, employing keyboards played by the composer, conducting and additional keyboards by longtime Glass collaborator Michael Reisman, and strings by the Kronos Quartet. Formed by violinist David Harrington in 1973, Kronos is the most highly regarded performing ensemble devoted to contemporary composition.
