Film Production Music by Heinz Herschmann


Catalogue no. ASPCD 205

Various Orchestra / Artists including London Symphony Orchestra

It will not come as a surprise to learn that Heinz Herschmann is a firm adherent of tonality and traditional formal structures and believes in the gradual evolution of the musical vocabulary.

The composer has written a great deal of library and film music combining artistic integrity with the requirements of the commission. The idea of writing to order and/or for special occasions and purposes has always held a special attraction to him, and some of his most successful pieces were written to order. “The Galleon”, requested by Boosy & Hawkes as background music for films and television programmes with a maritime content, was a great success in the fifties and sixties, and was followed by other compositions with different programmatic ideas such as “Majestic Interlude”, “Solemn Dignity”, “Palaver”, Anecdote” etc.
