For the first time, the original performance of the score composed by Bernard Hermann for this Orson Welles masterwork. Plus the music, also by Bernard Hermann, for the second film directed by Welles. 60th Anniversary DeLuxe edition with outer card sleeve.

Bernard Herrmann's "Citizen Kane" score fills this CD superbly, sounding for all the world like an integrated musical work rather than a recreated soundtrack. This is a first-rate effort in every sense, though the liner notes promise musical examples in print that seem to have been lost in the reissue. (This evidently existed in an earlier, Australian, form.) In the "Kane" score, we hear cues that would pop up later in "The Twilight Zone" and Hitchcock's "Vertigo." (Instant Bernard Herrmann: Play a major seventh chord in any key. Lower it a half-step. Voila!) I formerly regarded Herrmann as a prodigiously talented hack, but I hacked off the "hack" after hearing this bona fide masterpiece of music. Astonishing in every regard, and no less so for the bargain price. Don't miss out on this one.

Don't waste your money on this CD. It is filled with dialogue; if I wanted dialogue, I would have bought the DVD. Terrible, terrible, terrible.

If we were to put a label or title on this compilation...would possibly be ~ "THE MANY MOODS OF BERNARD HERRMANN"...or what Silva Screen has partly called this collection ~ "THE ESSENTIAL BERNARD HERRMANN FILM MUSIC COLLECTION", and leave it at that---the reason I'm pointing this out is "CITIZEN KANE", doesn't really do this justice...I know the score is a classic, but just look at the list of scores I'm going to earmark in the next paragraph.
My all-time favorite has to be "NORTH BY NORTHWEST"(1959), this non-stop score keeps you on the edge of your seat, not only is this a workout for The City Of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, but the many moods that give this film such character...the Prelude is exciting with a bite, but then the mood swings and the tone of the moment changes with Conversation Piece...can only say this is a masterpiece from our maestro extraordinaire---"THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH"(1956), is the opening track...why?, because this Prelude tells it like it is...Herrmann's music is as visual as the camera work from Hitchcock, the score is another character in the film...and Herrmann is absolutely in character, right up there with Cary Grant, who incidently is running in a cornfield from a crop-duster-plane---"ON DANGEROUS GROUND"(1951), here we have a blank canvas and Herrmann is about to paint a portrait through his music...tormenting counterpoints from this Suite(Prelude/Blindness/The Silence/The Hunt/Finale)a city that's going down the tubes...a man who has lost compassion for others...and sees no light at the end of the tunnel...Herrmann feeds the storyline to the audience within each cue of music...and it works, gotta love it.
Another example of the quality this label produces...

This is a "must have" set for Bernard Herrmann fans. The selections are great. I bought it for "The Naked and the Dead".

The music really makes that film. My only complaint is the cymbal crash in "The Man who Knew Too Much". You would think that in a film whose most important scene is a cymbal crash, the producers could have done a better job of miking the cymbals in the music CD. Keep in mind that this is not the original soundtrack.

But surely, someone in Pargue must have seen the film. You can barely hear the cymbals in this recording. I hope someday they re-record that one track. Can you imagine not hearing the tympani in in music from 2001?
