At the Movies: Danny Elfman Gala
John Mauceri Conductor
Sandy Cameron Violin
Gregory Batsleer Director, RSNO Chorus
Royal Scottish National Orchestra
If you know the theme tune from The Simpsons, you already know the music of Danny Elfman – the genius who created the musical world of Edward Scissorhands, followed Alice into Wonderland and let Tim Burton’s Batman take flight. Outrageously tuneful, deliciously dark or just plain magical, there’s no film composer quite like him, and tonight his friend and collaborator John Mauceri introduces some of his best-loved scores – as well as the UK premiere of his stunning new Violin Concerto.
