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

In the second episode highlighting the work of Bernard Herrmann, we'll hear him conduct music from his most famous film score, his Oscar-winning score, a score inspired by Greek myth, as well as selections by Dukas and Sibelius. His ability to interpret music was masterful, always with an incredible sense of pacing and drama, even in familiar music.
