Mishima Soundtrack Product Description

Mishima Soundtrack by Philip Glass was released Oct 25, 1990 on the Elektra (Label) label. 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. Mishima Soundtrack 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. Mishima Soundtrack 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. Mishima Soundtrack This is stirring, potent music that never once condescends to throw in some sort of Japanese instrument. Mishima Soundtrack As a side note, the ever-adept Kronos Quartet handle much of the string sections of this album. Mishima Soundtrack ~ Ted Mills All music written by Philip Glass.
