Gothic Prelude

On this page you can hear the concert premier of Hugo Friedhofer’s “Gothic Prelude”, a prelude from the roadshow version of the movie JOAN OF ARC (1948). Friedhofer wrote it for his daughter in a four hand piano version and Hans Bernstein (Harold Byrns) later orchestrated it for the movie. Hans Sørensen, artistic planner for the Danish Radio Symphony Orchestra, got the score from a book shop in L.A. and programed it for the premiere concert performance by the Danish National Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Hugh Wolff in Copenhagen.
