bernard Herrmann: Souvenirs de Voyage
Released 23 January 2011
Bernard Herrmann was perhaps one of the greatest musical all-rounders of the 20th Century. Although he is best known for his scores to perhaps some of the most iconic films ever made (‘Vertigo’, ‘Citizen Kane’, ‘Psycho’), he was also a talented composer for the concert hall, with an early career marked out by his skill as a conductor – praised by Stravinsky amongst others, who autographed Hermann’s score for his Symphony in 3 Movements with “To the excellent musician and conductor, Bernard Herrmann. Cordially, I. Stravinsky.”
Julian joins the Tippett Quartet for Souvenirs de Voyage, Herrmann's last concert composition.
