Hamish Mckeich Conductor

Hitchcock Vertigo

Concert duration: Approx. 2 hr 10 min

The shower scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho is one of the most famous moments in film history. Intended to run without any music at all, the film’s composer Bernard Hermann insisted on adding his iconic stabbing chords. The rest, as they say, is history.

Working closely with Hitchcock, the immensely talented Hermann scored the music for many of the director’s greatest films, creating some of the best movie soundtracks ever composed. In Vertigo, the obsessive themes of the film are expressed in stalking, circling music that builds an incredible sense of tension. The jolting, vicious chords of Psycho are contrasted against searching, driving phrases that unnerve the staunchest listener.

Settle in and watch two cinematic masterpieces as the NZSO plays Hermann’s iconic soundtracks live in this impressive convergence of sound and screen.
