  1. Varese CD Club Releases are out

    THE ALFRED HITCHCOCK HOUR, Volume 1
    Original Television Soundtrack
    Music Composed by Bernard Herrmann
    Limited Edition of 3000 copies

    Our celebration of Bernard Herrmann's 100th birthday begins with one of the most important and exciting Herrmann releases in many years! After a wait of nearly 50 years since they were composed we offer a 2-CD set featuring eight never-before-released scores by Bernard Herrmann for the classic television series The Alfred Hitchcock Hour.

    The hour-long Hitchcock episodes allowed Herrmann's music to really take the form of mini-film scores unto themselves. And Herrmann wrote 17 of them for the series!

    This premiere release features the classic 8-bassoon Herrmann arrangement of Gounod’s Funeral March Of A Marionette along with the complete scores A Home Away From Home, You’ll Be The Death of Me, Nothing Ever Happens In Linvale, Behind The Locked Door, Body In The Barn, Change of Address, Water’s Edge and The McGregor Affair. There’s action, romance, macabre humor and lots of classic, chilling Herrmann suspense.

    Featuring nearly 2 1/2 hours of Bernard Herrmann, this is a landmark release and an absolute must for all fans of the composer's work.

    Our Bernard Herrmann festivities will continue on July 2 with a thrilling concert tribute to the composer hosted by Robert Townson and conducted by Diego Navarro at Fimucité 5 in Tenerife!

  2. It's been an hour and no-one has commented yet!?

    Has no-one listened to the clips?

    This is a pure Herrmann indulgence! (Ah, I think that I may have answered my own questions!)

    For me this was an immediate selection - and the only one out of the announcements.

    I've only listened to the clips through my laptop's speakers so far but the clips sound excellent in terms of sound quality (for the time). Obviously they are in mono but it sounds so clear.

  4. To me, if I had the money, this would be the purchase; maybe the Newman as well.

    Excellent. V2 is something to look forward to.

    Herrmann has niched himself a unique place in music.
    listen to more classical music!
  9. On this day 100 years ago one of the most influential composers of the 20th century was born: Bernard Herrmann.

    One of my favourite composers (if not my favourite composer), Herrmann's music is hypnotic, emotional and action-packed. Sometimes all within the space of only a few bars of music.

  10. He was amazing. Is amazing. Vertigo. Fahrenheit 451. Ghost and Mrs Muir. Three of the most remarkable ever.
    It would be great to have his presence again in modern films, even if the big films have drifted well below the sort of thing he scored well. His motif-based style would have adapted well to the shorter phrases that most composers (even SW prequel John Williams) have to use in modern blockbuster films.

    Remakes of 7th Voyage of Sinbad, Jason And The Argonauts, Myserious Island etc would all be scored with huge choirs now, Herrmann didn't need cover-ups like that to give us some of the most sublime fantasy music ever.

    I notice that the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra is playing Herrmann's score to Psycho live to pictures in Glasgow in September:

    I really need to see some Herrmann music live in this centenary year of his birth!

    Just booked a couple of tickets for the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra playing Bernard Herrmann's score to Psycho live to picture. The concert is in Glasgow on the 17th September and will mark my first "event" celebrating the centenary celebrations of the composer's birth.

    Looking forward to it already!

    that should be an interesting experience given the original OST was such a strong part of the movie. I'll be curious of your opinion.

  11. I am looking forward to seeing if the orchestra really attacks the music when required but also maintains the more restrained parts.

    And costing only £12 a ticket I think it is a bit of a bargain price compared to some events.

    And if you also bought tickets for a Herrmann-themed concert on the following afternoon you could get both tickets for £20. But we need to return home that day so cannot go.

    I just listened to a Prokofiev piece and it sounds similar.

  12. I don't think I'll ever hear a contemporary composer write an action piece as wild and thrilling as Herrmann's Death Hunt for On Dangerous Ground.

  13. Anyone wishing to watch the suite of music from Psycho that was played at the BBC Proms concert the other night can watch it here.

    I wish we could have spent more time watching the musicians rather than the conductor.

  14. For anyone that is interested I have just posted some comments on the "Psycho: Live" concert on Saturday night:

    http://reelmusic.wordpress.com/2011/09/ … ity-halls/

    Seeing Psycho on a big screen and hearing Herrmann's score being played live, what's not to like!?

    John Wilson and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra delivered an awesome version of Herrmann's score: full of life and subtlety. I learned so much actually seeing the whole score being performed. Excellent stuff. And Anne enjoyed it immensely too.
