Film Music Friday - February 5, 2021 (Rejected Scores)

This week's Film Music Friday is devoted to rejected scores, movie music that for whatever reason was deemed unsuitable and was (often unceremoniously) dropped from the film.  As a film composer it seems you're nobody 'til you've had at least one score rejected.  We'll hear excerpts from Bernard Herrmann's unused score for Hitchcock's Torn Curtain, plus rejected scores from The Exorcist, 2001: A Space Oddysey, The Journey of Natty Gann and more.

Film Music Friday - January 22, 2021 (Henry Mancini)

Henry Mancini is probably the most popular and successful film composer of the 20th century, with iconic scores for films like Breakfast at Tiffany's, The Pink Panther, Experiment in Terror, Hatari and many more.  This week's Film Music Friday explores the music of Henry Mancini, with excerpts from many of his most famous works.

Film Music Friday - January 1, 2021 (The Swashbucklers)

Film Music Friday - December 11, 2020 (B-Movies)

On this week's Film Music Friday we enter the world of the B-movie, where time, money and inspiration are often in short supply.  However, despite working under pressure, some film composers have managed to craft impressive scores for low budget films.  In this program we'll hear the work of composers Albert Glasser, William Lava, Paul Sawtell and Bert Shefter for such films as The Allligator People, Tormented, The Amazing Colossal Man, The Three Mesquiteers and more.
