The Music

Herrmann: Prelude from North by Northwest
Sharp with a sense of danger. One of the finest scores Herrmann ever composed for an Alfred Hitchcock film.

Harris: Symphony No. 3
Rustic and fierce. In writing this piece Harris helped define the voice of the American composer.

Philip Glass: Symphony No. 1, Low
Roaming and wondrous. Glass based this symphony on David Bowie’s album Low.
