Exploring Music

Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin is a daily radio program that delves into a wide assortment of topics in classical music.

This week: I Lost it At the Movies. Music for (silent) film started in France when Saint-Saëns composed an original score for The Assassination of the Duke of Guise (L’Assassinat du duc de Guise, 1908) and Hollywood took it from there. Bill recalls some of his favorite original and arranged scores for many great films: Bernard Herrmann’s work for Citizen Kane and several Hitchcock films; Elmer Bernstein for To Kill a Mockingbird; Henri Mancini’s work on The Pink Panther; Ennio Morricone for various Westerns; and even some singing from Charlie Chaplin. Grab the popcorn and listen!
