BERNARD HERRMANN : FAHRENHEIT 451 [1966]

Ο Bernard Herrmann είναι ο πιο ταλαντούχος συνθέτης που εργάστηκε ποτέ για τον κινηματογράφο, και από τους ιδιαίτερα σημαντικούς του αιώνα – εννοείται, και ένας από τους επιφανέστερους του June born club. Η μουσική του για την ταινία Fahrenheit 451 του Φρανσουά Τριφό βασισμένη στο μυθιστόρημα του Ray Bradbury είναι ένα ακόμα αριστούργημα. Η διάρκεια του ηχογραφημένου soundtrack είναι λίγο παραπάνω από 16 λεπτά, ως εκ τούτου δεν μου έκανε καρδιά να παραλείψω κάτι.
Bernard Herrmann is the most talented composer ever to work for cinema, and one of the truly important of the 20th century – also, needless to say, one of the prominent composers of the June born club.
His music for
François Truffaut’s film Fahrenheit 451 based on Ray Bradbury’s novel, is yet another masterpiece. Since the recording of the soundtrack lasts only 16 minutes, it didn’t make sense to leave something out.

    I could swear I’ve heard the beginning of this used in other movie scores.

      That’s a remark I’d call remarkable!
      What we have here is an original idea and …a cliche in the making. Being hugely imitated is one of the things that make BH so great – not only in the sci fi field : apart from countless others, he’s written some 10 scores for Hitchcock [‘Psycho’ among them]. The other thing that makes him great is the classical [not pseudo-classical] quality of the music.
      Thank you!

        So, I wasn’t imagining things. You’re welcome!
