Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo
Orquestra Simfònica Camera Musicae
Anthony Gabriele, conductor
We celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Alfred Hitchock VERTIGO classic with a very special screening of the film. The sensational music of Bernard Herrmann will be performed live by the prestigious Camera Musicae Symphony Orchestra (more than 60 musicians on stage) and directed by the maestro Anthony Gabriele.
Considered the best film in the history of cinema (according to the last vote published by the prestigious magazine Sight & Sound), James Stewart and Kim Novak star in a story that transcends the usual mystery of Hitchcock films and delves into desires, passions and contradictions of the human mind.
The sublime, romantic and mysterious music of Bernard Herrmann is considered one of the best musical compositions for the cinema and can be heard and enjoyed in all its symphonic splendor.
