Wojciech Kilar ~ Bram Stoker's Dracula OST (1992)

Bram Stoker's Dracula

The blood is the life... and it shall be mine.
I am the monster that breathing men would kill.
I am Dracula.

Wojciech Kilar was born on July 17, 1932 in Lwów, Poland. He's a Polish classical and film music composer.

Do you remember your first real piece of music that you composed?

Wojciech Kilar: Yes, I do. I wrote Polonez, which is normally played at three quarters time step, but since I had no idea about it, I tried to squeeze it into a sixth eights time step. Then there was the copy of "Mazurek" by Szymanowski, as well as some impressionist miniatures. (PLUS Journal / May 2006)

List of Major Awards:

Orzeł 2006 dla Wojciecha Kilara

...This version of Dracula is closely based on Bram Stoker's classic novel of the same name. A young lawyer (Jonathan Harker) is assigned to a gloomy village in the mists of eastern Europe. He is captured and imprisoned by the undead vampire Dracula, who travels to London, inspired by a photograph of Harker's betrothed, Mina Murray. In Britain, Dracula begins a reign of seduction and terror, draining the life from Mina's closest friend, Lucy Westenra. Lucy's friends gather together to try to drive Dracula away...

In London, Dracula emerges as a wolf-like creature amid a fierce thunderstorm and hypnotically seduces, then rapes and bites Lucy Westenra, with whom Mina is staying while Jonathan is in Transylvania.

Do you believe in destiny?
That even the powers of time can be altered for a single purpose?
That the luckiest man who walks on this earth is the one who finds... true love?

Annie Lennox ~ Love Song For A Vampire

Bram Stroker's Dracula 1992 by Francis Ford Coppola

How would you like to be perceived in the future by next generations?

Wojciech Kilar: I would like to be remembered as a good human being, someone who brought little happiness, hope and reflection into life and into the world and perhaps a bit of faith by those religious pieces. If I were to die seeing that just one person had converted because of me, I would have been satisfied. (PLUS Journal / May 2006)
