From the Archives - Bernard Herrmann

Bernard Herrmann conducts a rehearsal of The Free Company radio drama in Hollywood, April 6, 1941.

Bernard Herrmann wrote some of the greatest film scores of the 20th century on top of being an excellent conductor. We’ll hear him interpret one of his own film scores as well as music by Faure and Liszt.
