Editorial Reviews

The music Herrmann wrote for The Twlight Zone ranks with his best big-screen work-and here it is, complete for the first time! Herrmann's main theme from the first season joins his scores for the episodes Where Is Everybody? (series pilot), Walking Distance, The Lonely, Eye of the Beholder (world premiere!), Little Girl Lost, Living Doll and Ninety Years Without Slumbering , all newly recorded

Very emotional and haunting.

The episode tells the story of a weary businessman who revisits his hometown only to find it unchanged from the days of his youth.

Highly recommended for fans of the Twilight Zone or Bernard Herrmann.

These two CDs features some of the best television music ever composed and wonderfully rich and clean sound. I feared these recordings would be arrangements for full orchestra of the classic Twilight Zone soundtracks and would leave something missing of the chamber atmospheric recordings. I was glad that the producers decided to be so faithful to the original scores. When compared to the original scores conducted by Herrmann himself, these records lack some of the "bite" that Herrmann adds, but this works wonderfully in the luminous "Walking Distance" suite. The slower tempo really brings out the nastalgia of the score. Highly recommended for fans of the Twilight Zone or Bernard Herrmann.

Conductor Joel McNeely already gave us splendid versions of Herrmann's Vertigo and The Trouble with Harry, both available on Varèse. This new Twilight Zone CD is a winner all the way. Here you will find every single note Herrmann wrote for Rod Serling's landmark television anthology. This 2CD set displays an incredible range of moods, from the quietly unsettling "main title" to the aching lyricism of "Walking Distance", perhaps one of Herrmann's most eloquent compositions ranking along "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir" and "Obsession". The 20bit digital recording is cristal clear and gives full justice to Herrmann's transparent orchestrations. For the first time you will hear every subtle nuances thanks to Joel McNeely's conducting style, so fateful to Herrmann's own musical design. One minor quibble: I find the elegy from "Walking Distance" a bit too slow for my liking. But nevertheless, this CD is a real gem. The cover design is very evocative and the liner notes are very informative. This CD belongs to every TZ or Bernard Herrmann fan. A masterpiece of atmosphere and magic that will take you to an area between light and shadow... the Herrmann zone!

I thoroughly enjoyed Joel Mc Neeley's recording of Bernard Herrmann's PSYCHO score, so I was thrilled to discover that the conductor also recorded Herrmann's scores for THE TWILIGHT ZONE. Herrmann was one of THE TWILIGHT ZONE's most prolific composers, having written the original theme music and the scores for eight individual episodes (only one of which, "The Hitch-Hiker," is regrettably not represented on this two-CD set). Mc Neeley's set opens with Herrmann's first version of the TWLIGHT ZONE theme (used during the series' initial season), with its familiar low final chord. The next sixteen tracks present Herrmann's score for the series' pilot episode, "Where Is Everybody?" Dream-like bewilderment is (as a previous reviewer suggested) the primary emotion this score, with its recurring three-note motif, captures. And it is true that Herrmann anticipates PSYCHO in several cues, particularly "The Mirror" and "The Bookrack." "Walking Distance," Herrmann's most highly acclaimed TWILIGHT ZONE score, follows "Where Is Everybody?" The episode tells the story of a weary businessman who revisits his hometown only to find it unchanged from the days of his youth. The episode is perhaps Rod Serling's finest, and Herrmann's music for it is pure nostalgic beauty, with not a hint of cloying.
Herrmann gives "The Lonely," an episode about a man imprisoned on an asteroid who receives a robot woman for a companion, a uniquely beautiful score, in which the notes played by the vibraphones and harps resemble stars. Herrmann's soundscape here truly suggests the "vastness of space." From the asteroid, we move back to Earth - to the hospital room of Miss Janet Tyler, a woman undergoing plastic surgery to repair her "deformed" face in "The Eye of the Beholder.

Bernard Herrmann stands apart from many of his contemporaries because his scores could, for the most part, stand apart from the films that they accompanied. His composing skills were so great the he created mini-symphonies for the films assigned him. He thoroughly understood the technique of composing for film and how the music was integral to a story's success.
Nowhere is this more evident than in his scores for the classic Twilight Zone on this two-disc set. "Where is Everybody?" expresses the main character's bewilderment at being in a deserted town. Many of the cues for that episode are reminiscent for Herrmann's work in Jason and the Argonauts" and "Psycho".
"Walking Distance" is prime Herrmann as the music evokes the tale of a man revisiting his past. Herrmann always effectively used strings and contrasting horns to create a mood.
The surprise of finding companionship, as well as the results of losing the same, is brought to life by Herrmann's complex treatment for "The Lonely".
The dreamlike quality of the score to "Eye of the Beholder" is perfect for the tale of a hospital patient anxiously awaiting the results of her plastic surgery.
Disc Two features Herrmann's compositions for three other memorable episodes; however, these creations pale when compared to those that preceded them.
But still, sub-par Herrmann is better than anything before or since.
