Review

by David A. Koran
on January 27th, 2000
[4.5 / 5]
For the first time in a long time, a record company has created the best concept for a tribute album with this release celebrating filmmaker, Alfred Hitchcock’s, 100th birthday. This album covers the scores created by legendary composer, Bernard Herrmann, for their nine film collaborations. The album is also interspersed with dialogue of Herrmann describing his role as a composer for cinema as well as his work with Hitchcock. Unlike other albums that have dialogue, this adds much more to the album than usual, actually educating the listener. It’s a nice addition to hear a composers thoughts and motivations for writing the music, and of course, hearing the music shortly afterwards. I would hope that this idea would span to other composers and other possible tribute albums and retrospectives.

The music itself are new recordings conducted by Elmer Bernstein, who adapted Herrmann’s work on Cape Fear for a 1991 version of the film. Outside Joel McNeely, Elmer has been one of the best conductors and interpreters of Herrmann’s work. These are new recordings, which includes an adaptation and 1999 remix of the "Prelude" from Psycho.

I could expect that David Lean and Maurice Jarre’s numerous collaborations could be the future subject for an album of this magnitude. When you have a good idea, it’s nice to stick with it, and Milan has hit the nail on the head with this release.
