The haunting score of Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho is enough to unnerve the most strong willed of cinephiles, a rich soundtrack that redefined what music and film can evoke in the mind of the audience, and is as important to the piece of film as the script or Norma Bates’ dress. To further enrich the eerie strings that accompany Hitchcock’s classic tale there will be a live orchestra performance of Bernard Hermann’s spine tingling soundtrack to bring to life a big screen presentation at The Bridgewater Hall. Anthony Gabriele conducts the British Sinfonietta as they intend to haunt the audience, and any future showers they might take. A classic film made even more chilling by the music that defined a genre being performed live.

Fri 11 Apr, The Bridgewater Hall, M2 3WS. Tel: 0844 907 9000, 7.30pm, £25, .
