Product Description

Orson Welles was so struck by young Herrmann's talent that he tailored several scenes to fit his music rather than the other way around! Here are key themes from that 1941 breakthrough and from Hangover Square (1945), On Dangerous Ground (1951), Beneath the 12-Mile Reef (1953) and White Witch Doctor (1953).

Citizen Kane is a great CD with lots of lush arrangements. Overall, it is excellent, if a little on the short side - the entire CD is only about fifty minutes long. For me the best track has to be Concerto Macabre. It is just stunning with the National Philharmonic Orchestra giving it every thing they've got. Citizen Kane was another outstanding track.

My least favourite was White Witch Doctor. I just found it boring and not that good. It is a great shame that Vertigo was not included: this has to be one of the composers best scores.

Magnificent. Worth it for the frightening Death Hunt from 'On Dangerous Ground' alone. A good cross-section of some of Hermann's more symphonic and, to some extent, experimental scores and containing some of the most extravagant orchestration imaginable (8 solo horns, VW brake drums, 12 harps, log drums, the list of kitchen-sink extras is huge). Admittedly it doesn't cover the Hitchcock movies but that's not a criticism when such fantastic playing and exemplary engineering are there. RCA in its heyday.

Replacing old LPs that were damaged in a fire. This series is a fantastic journey into the world of Classic film music!

Brilliant re-recordings of Bernard Herrmann scores 12 April 2011
By Jobla - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The Charles Gerhardt LP series of re-recordings of classic golden age film scores was one of the most admired filmmusic undertakings of the 1970's. The albums featured phenonemenal sound quality and exquisite musical performances.

At some point (in the 1980's?), the series was released on CD. However, film music experts felt that the CD's did NOT improve the sound quality at all.

This latest CD resissue of the series, however, restores superb sound quality to these recordings. Knowledgeble collectors feel that this latest reissue restores the majesty of those long-ago vinyl treasures.

The Bernard Herrmann volume features stunning renditions of cues from CITIZEN KANE, BENEATH THE 12 MILE REEF, ON DANGEROUS GROUND, HANGOVER SQUARE, and the elusive WHITE WITCH DOCTOR. Whether you're new to the wonders of Bernard Herrmann, or simply upgrading from the previous disappointing CD release, this recording will occupy an important place in your filmmusic collection.

Not quite an exact reissue 5 Jun. 2013
By Robert J. Sachek - Published on Amazon.com
Buyers should be aware that this fine reissue does not fully supplant the 1991 CD release (silver cover, now unfortunately only generally available used). That release, in superb sound, was Dolby Surround encoded, and played through a contemporary home theatre system sounds utterly AWESOME. The Dolby encoding is NOT a gimmick. It has to be heard to be believed.

What can I say? 3 April 2013
By Bernard - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This man wrote better film music with his left foot while asleep, than the vast majority of hacks working in the industry today. One of the few composers who dedicated himself to evoking mood rather than commenting loudly on the screen action like just another sound effect, his work has stood the test of time. The fact that he was a total jerk and an utter pain in the patoot to work with only makes him more fun!

Bewildered 24 Aug. 2012
By L. Fox - Published on Amazon.com
The individual titles of the music selections or tracks mean nothing to the customer unless you list the "movie titles". That is what the customer relates to and not an obscure track.
