The music score for Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 film Vertigo was composed by Bernard Herrmann between 3 January and 19 February 1958. The recordings were made in London and Vienna, with orchestra conducted by Muir Mathieson. (A musicians' strike had prevented the score from being recorded in Los Angeles with Herrmann conducting).
This year Vertigo was voted Best Picture Of All-Time by leading cinema magazine Sight & Sound, an honour that had been previously given to Citizen Kane since 1962.
To celebrate this occasion, Milan is releasing the original soundtrack of this thoroughly cult film composed by Bernard Herrmann, a regular collaborator to Alfred Hitchcock.
"This is an opportunity to revel in Herrmann's music for Hitchcock without the visuals." The Arts Desk
