Danish National Symphony Orchestra & Concert Choir • Klaudia Kidon • John Mauceri


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.

I wish that more of Herrmann's THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH was being recorded. I believe that the film's prelude is just about the sum total of this score that exists on LP and CD.

Yeah it's sooooooo horrible that a company actually announces what's upcoming. Damn them for not surprising you!!

I'm sure that there will be discussion about it here when it has been released. It's coming next month, I think.

There are so many Hitch compilations and they're all the same, some better than others, but content rarely varies. Wouldn't it be nice if we got some new stuff and believe me there's plenty to still get.

I'm with Bruce. It looks like a cool disc and I'm glad Mauceri is still recording, but instead of the usual Herrmann/Waxman/Tiomkin, I want:

Roy Webb's Notorious
Frank Skinner's Saboteur
Alfred Newman's Foreign Correspondent
Ron Goodwin's Frenzy
Henry Mancini's rejected Frenzy,
amazing scores ALL,

or even more of his short British scores (thanks Silva for the few bits we do have!)

(And thanks Intrada for Lyn Murray's To Catch a Thief this past year!)

I agree Yavar. I especially like Skinner's superb score to Saboteur. As pointed out before, his Saboteur music ended up in many Universal horror scores of the early 1940s including Son of Dracula, among others. This reminds me of my comments on the recent Rozsa Chandos cd which gave us yet another Ben Hur, Jungle Book etc. ....... more of the same.

Unfortunately, Chandos's and Toccata Classics's target group is not you, me and Yavar - not mainly, for sure - so we'll always have to deal with releases containing yet another "Scene d' Amour" or "Parade of the Charioteers" re-rec...

Toccata of all labels one would think would go for a bit off the beaten path, given what they normally release (look at their catalog. How many composers do you recognize?)

Exactly.

At the very least it could have featured a "big" score or two tops (in suite form of course), and then filled out the rest with ones that haven't been re-recorded a zillion times.

And if it had to be Waxman and Herrmann why not lesser exposed stuff like Paradine Case or say The Man Who Knew Too Much (the complete score, which wouldn't have taken up much space...)

Hi, I'm the artistic planner for the Danish National Symphony Orchestra. This CD project came up after we had the two concerts in Copenhagen, they went so well that John Mauceri suggested that we we should put it out on CD. Most of the suites have been newly edited by John and are here presented for the first time on CD. We would love to record the complete music from The Man who knew to much, but that would be as a costly studio production and would need a lot of Funding.
We recorded the Herrmann Moby Dick and Sinfonietta for Chandos the same way, live concert edited to CD. If you hear the new recording, enjoy the superb sound and great playing.

The Chandos MOBY DICK and SINFIONETTA was a superb CD. This new Hitch CD looks promising, although I was hoping for a more complete recording of THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH.
