The Big Picture: Hitchcock is a tribute to one of the greatest filmmakers of all time, Sir Alfred Hitchcock. He began his career in his native England and after making a name for himself there, he moved to the United States in the year 1939. That is when he rose as an all-time great. His movies are revered by movie enthusiasts all around the globe to this day.
Hitchcock is known as “The Master of Suspense” and rightly so. His movies had an uncanny knack of shocking the viewers with their drama and screenplay. Hitchcock has over fifty movies to his credit as a director. His career spanned an impressive six decades. During those sixty wonderful years and beyond, fans have witnessed the genius of arguably the greatest filmmaker of all time.
The music for this wonderful Hitchcock celebration will be given by the famous Hollywood Bowl Orchestra. The magnificent Hollywood Bowl has been the orchestra's home since the year 1922. It all began when multiple orchestras started to perform at the venue from 1922 onwards. Most of those were from LA and surrounding regions.
It went on like that before the name was changed to the “Bowl Orchestra” three years later. Eugene Goossens then took over the role of the conductor and that is when the name was changed to its current one, the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra. That in earnest was the start of a special orchestra that has now gone on to rank among the most famous of its kind.
In 1945, Leopold Stokowski became the director and the orchestra took its first steps towards gaining a permanent status. The orchestra however was shut down a few years later and remained close for around four decades.
The Los Angeles Philharmonic Association, also known as the LAPA, stepped in and formed the basis of coming up with a new orchestra which was named the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra. It wasn't really planned out as an orchestra in the traditional sense of the word. The new Hollywood Bowl Orchestra was meant to cater to people with different music styles and tastes. It was to bridge the gap between popular music and the more classical, serious music. And it was scheduled to tour as well.
The first ever public performance by the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra in its current form was held on 2nd July 1991. It was led by John Mauceri and he remained at the helm of it for sixteen years. Under his guidance, the orchestra grew in reputation and the recording repertoire began to expand. Not only that, but it also went to perform in countries like Japan and Brazil. Mauceri retired in 2006 as the director. Two years later, Thomas Wilkins became the Principal Guest Conductor for two years.
Between eighty to hundred performers complete the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra's line-up. Almost all of them come from the Los Angeles region and are exceptionally trained artists who conjure up magic on stage week in week out. The interesting part is that the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra don't venture into each other's territories when it comes to the artists performing for both entities.
