North By Northwest Movie Suite

North By Northwest Movie Suite
Music by Bernard Herrmann

This classic movie suite from the 1959 Hitchcock thriller is filled with tightly wound themes that were crafted by Mr. Herrmann in the his most prolific heyday. Whether signifying death defying leaps, chase scenes or the moments of two lovers, this suite is filled with chops and props. In a word, amazing. With a timing of 22 minutes, I must apologize for the small amounts of hiss that crop up in the quieter phrases, but this is still the best sound available for this music. I hope you enjoy!!  -MJ
