From David Stabler at the Oregonian:
Fifty years after Alfred Hitchcock made people afraid to take showers, the Oregon Symphony and resident conductor Gregory Vajda perform Bernard Herrmann’s jagged, jarring score as live accompaniment to the film. Hitchcock himself said that “33 percent of the effect of ‘Psycho’ was due to the music.”
4 p.m. Sunday, October 31, Schnitzer Hall, 1037 S.W. Broadway, $14 to $78, 503-228-1353 or Oregon Symphony
Gus Van Sant’s 1998 re-creation of Alfred Hitchcock’s take down of small town hospitality preserved Bernard Herrman’s original score. Besides Gus, the other Oregon credential on Psycho: The Second One was Kelley Baker, who served as sound department supervisor.
