Programme Notes
“I’m aiming for a concept with it that’s very tricky. To answer the question is it possible to write challenging orchestra music that’s not alienating to someone who listens to film music, and more specifically my film music, but at the same time, to not make it fell like film music, but something more? This was a very difficult challenge but that was my goal.”
Danny Elfman on the Violin Concerto
