Summary

The shower scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho is one of the most chilling and iconic moments in cinema history, celebrated both for its suggestive editing and its brilliant, nerve-jangling score by Bernard Hermann. But there are equally exciting riches elsewhere in the music – tense lullabies, clever tunes, and sleazy solos – as you’ll hear when the superb Britten Sinfonia performs during a live screening of the film. It is preceded by Strauss’ haunting elegy for war-ravaged Germany, Metamorphosen.
