"If you enjoyed the first installment from Silva Screen Records ~ "A History Of Hitchcock:Dial M For Murder"(SSD-1030), chances are you're in for another ride through the ALFRED HITCHCOCK film archives---the magic of film scoring and Compact Disc takes you into the film-world of Suspense, Thrillers and Terror...all from the compliments of various composers hand-picked by our brilliant director. Let's take a look and listen to the scores and composers on this one-of-a-kind compilation ~
"THE THIRTY-NINE STEPS"(1935-Jack Beaver/Louis Levy)---"THE LADY VANISHES"(1938-Louis
Levy/Charles Williams)---"LIFEBOAT"(1942-Hugo Friedhofer)---"ROPE"(1948-Francis Poulenc/David Buttolph)---"STAGE FRIGHT"(1950-Leighton Lucas/Philip Lane)---"STRANGERS ON A TRAIN"(1951-Dimitri Tiomkin)---"REAR WINDOW"(1954-Franz Waxman)---"THE TROUBLE WITH HARRY"(1955-Bernard Herrmann)---"VERTIGO"(1958-Bernard Herrmann)---"NORTH BY NORTHWEST"(1959-Bernard Herrmann)---"TORN CURTAIN"(1966-John Addison)---"FAMILY PLOT"(1976-John Williams)...this was Hitchcock's last film, still giving his fans old and new the thrill ride they'd come to expect, after five decades of films, they'll never be another like him to pass this way again. The selections are outstanding, some cues never appeared on any recording (compact disc) for that matter...brilliant performances by The City Of Prague Philharmonic, under the direction of Paul Bateman...through the watchful eyes of James Fitzpatrick(producer) and Reynold da Silva(executive producer) as music (the score) takes us into a realm of intriguing stories that will give stimulation, excitement and even nightmares...brought to the screen by THE MASTER OF SUSPENSE...ALFRED HITCHCOCK! Total Time: 60:19 on 13 Tracks ~ Silva Screen Records SSD-1045 ~ (1995)"
