an in depth analytical look at Bernard Herrmann, master composer, friend of Charles Ives who composed symphonies, operas, and some of the greatest film scores in history, from CITIZEN KANE to TWILIGHT ZONE to TAXI DRIVER and of course many classic Hitchcock scores (PSYCHO, THE BIRDS, VERTIGO, many others). All ideas welcome, contact Michael if there’s work of Herrmann’s you’d like to bring in and analyze.
