For admirers the film music of Bernard Herrmann, the Californian specialist film score label, Intrada, are running a Kickstarter to raise funds to record Herrmann's iconic film noir score for On Dangerous Ground and Hitchcock's The Man Who Knew Too Much [minus the Arthur Benjamin cantata and the popular song].  Both contain music which is vintage Herrmann.

William Stromberg will conduct the Royal Scottish National Orchestra if the target is met.

The original recorded score of On Dangerous Ground has been previously released on CD in poor quality sound.  Nonetheless most admirers of the composer who know the music would not want to be without it.  Apart from the Prelude to the film, the original score for The Man Who Knew Too Much has never been officially released. There is a poor sounding bootleg someone extracted from the film which, I am guessing, is not widely available, but there is a stark difference between its Prelude and modern recorded versions.
