Bernard Herrmann Biography
Composer (1911–1975)
Synopsis

Bernard Herrmann was born on June 29, 1911, in New York City. He began his career as a conductor at CBS, where he worked with the director Orson Welles. Herrmann and Welles worked together on films, including Citizen Kane. Alfred Hitchcock also forged a partnership with Hermann, who scored his classic movies Psycho, Vertigo and North by Northwest. Herrmann died in Los Angeles, California, on December 24, 1975.

The Mystrrious Island's soundtrack is my favorite, followed by, Journey to the Center of the Earth. The man was a genius...

For a outstanding biography on Bernard Herrmann, check out the book A Heart At Fire's Center by Steven C. Smith.

What's interesting is that the first sentence or two of this bio are on the Now Playing page, but there's nothing in the link. Weird.

Pandora would not presume to write a bio on this greatest of composers. (That's their story and they're sticking to it.) You are invited however to google him and read the massive Wikipedia entry. While you are there, check Nino Rota's bio also.

Why the heck does the selected discography for Bernard Herrmann consist solely of Kill Bill Vol. 1? It would be so awesome if Pandora had more than like 10 CDs.

Pandora, you are as beautiful as Louise Brooks. Kidding aside, Pandora is one of the wonders of the internet. Hope you create a workable financial concept. Louis Bartfield

I have to agree with teloivkrad. Without Hermann's music, those Hitchcock and Harryhausen movies would be infinitely poorer

myerspercuss i o n wastes the oxygen he breathes. If you think that Bernard Herrmann's music was bad, then you have no concept of what music really is, and you should probably consider the possibility that you're soulless and will always be left out of life's greatest pleasures.

Brilliant! Try muting the sound on one of Herrmann's Hitchcock movies, flat!

Sorry but this guy's music is so heavy-handed that it ruins many of the movies that it covers like a thick tar on an Alabama highway in August. Maybe it's better than it sounds but he apparently conducts with a 2x4 rather than a baton.
