part of the Celebrating Bernard Herrmann series
John Wilson Conductor
BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra
Celebrating the centenary of Bernard Herrmann, one of Hollywood's greatest film composers - who wrote the music for Hitchcock's classics Vertigo, and North by Northwest - the BBC SSO presents a concert of music from his scores accompanied by a selection from composers connected to him.
Conducted by John Wilson, the country's foremost advocate of film music, this is brilliant, ingenious writing that still seduces and startles. It's an afternoon guaranteed to have you on the edge of your seat..
Tickets: £12 for each event or book both Psycho and Music to be Murdered By for £20
