Bernard Herrmann At 20th Century Fox
4-Dec-2011 - Varèse Sarabande celebrates the 100th birthday of one of film music’s immortal masters – the legendary Bernard Herrmann! We’ve been celebrating all year long, but now it is time for the grand finale of the 2011 Bernard Herrmann salute. And it’s a whopper! Varèse Sarabande concludes their Bernard Herrmann centenary celebration with the most important chronicle of Bernard Herrmann’s music that has ever been assembled ... Bernard Herrmann at 20th Century Fox. Eighteen scores, representing an 18-year relationship with 20th Century Fox are all included here, and each one of them sounds better than they ever have before! Four scores are making their premiere appearance. Never before have Herrmann’s original recordings of The Snows of Kilimanjaro, White Witch Doctor, 5 Fingers or Hangover Square appeared on CD. But the premieres contained herein by no means stop with these four. The collection opens with one of the most significant of all restorations. Jane Eyre appears in its entirety for the very first time, nearly doubling its previous length. Along with the significantly improved sound, the expansion makes this presentation a revelation in every way. This 14 CD boxed set includes seven double CD slim line jewel boxes, a 108 page full-color, hardcover book featuring an introduction by Robert Townson, extensive notes on all of the films and scores by Julie Kirgo and Bernard Herrmann biographer, Steven C. Smith, a huge selection of film stills, rare recording session photos and a historic selection of photographs of Bernard Herrmann himself! This is a limited edition of 1000 copies.
