Bernard Herrmann - Symphony No. 1 (1941)

Phoenix Symphony Orchestra, James Sedares conducting.

I. Maestoso - Allegro (0:00)
II. Scherzo (13:50)
III. Andante sostenuto (19:49)
IV. Rondo: Finale (28:31)

"Herrmann’s only symphony was written in a common style used in American and British music during the 1920’s and 1930’s. Nevertheless, its beautiful and dramatic language was obscured due to the rise of musical nationalism (or Americana) in his home country."

What other people call "God"

What made you become a perfumer? Was there one particular event that prompted you to make that decision?

Serge Lutens: I didn’t actually make a decision. Let’s just call it force of circumstance (What other people call “God”). I don’t think of myself as a perfumer: I’m just someone who sets a fragrance within the context of a suitable story, which is just as likely to be drawn from a fairy tale, fable or novel as it is from any of the encounters I’ve had with flowers and woods during my lifetime.
