Audiophile Audition reviews “Music for Alfred Hitchcock“
Posted October 15th, 2014
“Wow, what a terrific filmscore album, containing four recording premieres: The opening Overture, the two suites of filmscore music by Dmitri Tiomkin, and the nearly 16-minute Narrative for Strings on the themes of Psycho, which was restored and edited by Mauceri himself.”
