Alfred Hitchcock commissioned his film scores from composers who were Hollywood's master-craftsmen.
The concert items prepared from those scores feature a dazzling variety of styles, from Baroque and jazz to dark Romanticism and angular angst, all using the orchestra with breathtaking virtuosity.
The conductor John Mauceri, as at home with this repertoire as any other musician, has prepared a number of concert suites from the film scores and some of them receive their first recordings here.
This recording was made live in concert in Danish Radio's new concert hall in Copenhagen.
The booklet contains an introductory text by John Mauceri and an extensive, illustrated essay on Hitchcock and his use of film music and work with composers by British film-music historian John Riley.
The orchestra's Flair, the vivid colours, and audible adrenalin. Even the most dedicated film buff should deepen their appreciation as Hitchcock's composers run the gamut from formal figures through aching Romanticism to skittish jazz. Performance **** Recording *** --BBC Music Magazine, Oct'14
This release was clearly a labour of love for John Mauceri, who prepared the suites from the Waxman and Tiomkin scores reclaimed the Psycho 'Narrative' from obscurity and draws a committed response from the Danish National Symphony Orchestra, which clearly enjoyed its outing into the film domain. With excellent wide-ambience sound, this is a disc that takes its place among the best of those dedicated to Hitchcock and 'his'composers. --IRR, Oct'14
The main performing plaudits on this disc go to the Danish National Symphony Orchestra under John Mauceri, not least on the conductor's restoration of the gripping Narrative for String orchestra Hermann made in 1968 from Psycho. First class sound, strongly recommended. --Gramophone, Feb'15
