    Folk Songs

    When Nonesuch Records celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2014, with festivals at London's Barbican Centre and New York's Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), Kronos Quartet joined forces with four labelmates-Sam Amidon, Olivia Chaney, Rhiannon Giddens, and Natalie Merchant-to perform a concert entitled Folk Songs. The group later recorded the songs, most of which are traditional with contemporary arrangements, with Doug Petty as the album's producer.

    Dracula Soundtrack


    Official Release Date 10/31/2016


    Limited To 2000 Copies


    First Time On Vinyl


    Orange Mountain is pleased to announce for the first time on vinyl Philip Glass's 1998 score to the 1931 film DRACULA starring Bela Lugosi. For his new score, Philip Glass tapped the all-star Kronos Quartet and wrote specifically for them. In the late-1990s Universal Pictures approached composer Philip Glass to compose a new score for one of its classic monster movies. Glass chose to compose a score for Tod Browning's 1931 Dracula because it never had an original score. He composed the work for string quartet to evoke an ancient sound and now almost 20 years later Glass and Kronos continue to perform the music live to film around the world. In the end Glass's music gave the film new life, perhaps adding something that had been missing before there was music: structure and pacing and above all a new sense of mystery and soul.


    DRACULA album was originally available on Nonesuch in the late-1990s.

    This is the first time DRACULA is available on vinyl.

    The Revenant Soundtrack

    180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl


    Matte Tip-On Gatefold Jacket


    Limited Edition Of 3000 On Pearlescent Colored Vinyl


    Following the success of 2014's Birdman (Winner of four Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director), director Alejandro G. Iñárritu pushes the limits of film making with the survival epic The Revenant. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio (Titanic, Wolf of Wall Street), Tom Hardy (Mad Max: Fury Road, The Dark Knight Rises) and shot in the frozen Canadian wilderness with only natural lighting, The Revenant is a story of loss, revenge and resilience in the face of impossible odds against the furies of man and nature itself. The film is heavily favored to be a critical darling as awards season gets under way. Director Iñárritu has chosen to forgo almost all dialogue in favor of a gorgeous soundscape and a sweeping score. A film of this magnitude deserves a composer who understands creative artistry and unbridled passion. Japanese master and Oscar winner Ryuichi Sakamoto (Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence, The Last Emperor) fits the bill perfectly. Along with fellow Yellow Magic Orchestra member and frequent collaborator Alva Noto, Sakamoto has created a gripping soundtrack that is sure to be a treat for the winter crowds. Bryce Dessner (writer for Kronos Quartet and the LA Phil) also supplies additional music.


    This is a limited pressing of 3,000 copies on pearlescent colored vinyl (one translescent blue, one cloud white).

    Music For Heart And Breath

    Music for Heart and Breath is Richard Reed Parry's debut as classical composer who is mostly known from the Grammy Nominated Uber Indie Rock
    Band Arcade Fire Richard is a multi-instrumentalist and composer, drawing his influences from classical music, folk and electronica. This is his first core classical release
    that will find his home at Deutsche Grammophon!


    The album features various compositions for Heart and Breath for various ensembles, as well as small interludes (Interruptions) The concept behind Heart and Breath is that every musician involved in the piece generates his own tempo by listening to his/her pulse during the performance. Fragile and intimate, these stunningly created performance effects are the basis for this conceptual compositional approach Richard explains:


    "Music for Heart and Breath is a series of compositions that use involuntarily moving organs of the human body (specifically the lungs and the heart) as performance parameters. There are no time signatures: the tempos and rhythms are always governed by either the heart rates or the breathing rates of the individual players. In the case of the latter, the performers are instructed to play directly in sync with their own or another player's individual breathing (playing at the speed of their inhalations, their exhalations or both). To enable the players to hear and play in sync with their own heartbeats, they wear stethoscopes and, naturally, generally play quietly."


    The music is performed by an exciting line-up of musicians, produced by Bryce Dessner Nico Muhly (Conductor, celeste/piano), Bryce & Aaron Dessner (guitar) from The National, Kronos Quartet, the ensemble Ymusic

    Bryce Dessner: Aheym


    45 RPM Mastered Double Gatefold LP


    LP Contains CD of Full Album


    Aheym is an astonishing collaboration between National
    guitarist Bryce Dessner and journeyman new music string
    quartet the Kronos Quartet. Performing four compositions by
    Dessner, the Kronos Quartet champion an exciting young
    composer, continuing a history of presenting new and
    important works and composers that stretches back to their
    founding in 1973. Dessner has a history of composition that
    predates his membership in the National, and represents a new
    generation who are blurring the lines between rock and
    contemporary classical music.


    From the raw emotional
    overtones of Aheym to the soaring choral crescendo - courtesy
    of the Brooklyn Youth Chorus - of Tour Eiffel, Bryce Dessner's
    music for the Kronos Quartet will delight longtime followers of
    Kronos' work with Steve Reich, Philip Glass and others, and will
    challenge and surprise the National's many fans. At the close of
    day, Aheym addresses many of the same aches and dreams as
    the music of the National, and it is the breaking down of these
    artificial barriers of genre and performance that Bryce Dessner
    has made a life's work.
