Music of Fate! - Bernard Herrmann's film score for Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 classic Vertigo and Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5, first performed in 1888, seem worlds apart. And yet both scores are dominated by an inescapably recurring motif of fate. And both Tchaikovsky, who shaped Russian music of the 19th century like no other, and the influential American film composer with Russian roots show themselves to be influenced by the music of Richard Wagner on closer inspection. After all, Herrmann, like Tchaikovsky, was a romantic at heart and soul. With the 1957 1st Violin Concerto by the Volga German Alfred Schnittke, whose oeuvre also includes numerous remarkable film scores, star violinist Daniel Hope builds a bridge between Tchaikovsky and Herrmann and at the same time opens up the sound space from Romanticism to Modernism.
