About The Music

Celebrated as one of the most innovative film composers of all time, Bernard Herrmann created the soundtracks for some of the 20th Century’s best-known films. The highly charged music that underlies Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho brilliantly conveys the tension and drama of this legendary thriller. But Herrmann did not just write for cinema. After a falling out with his longtime collaborator Hitchcock he returned to concert work, writing the clarinet quintet Souvenirs de voyage and the nostalgic Echoes.
