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.

Rustic and fierce. In writing this piece Harris helped define the voice of the American composer.

Roaming and wondrous. Glass based this symphony on David Bowie’s album Low.
