Info for Violin Concerto "Eleven Eleven" and Piano Quartet
“Inspired by the Shostakovich Violin Concerto No. 1, [Danny] Elfman’s concerto is dramatic, lyrical, highly rhythmic, percussive (especially given its unusual cadenza-like back and forth between the violin and percussion), thoughtful and playful. The score is high adrenaline business, taking us on a musical roller coaster ride from the heights to the sudden-drop depth of emotions… The physical and emotional energy she [violin soloist Sandy Cameron] put into the work was downright compelling, exciting and extraordinary…The reception given her [Ms. Cameron] — and JoAnn Falletta and orchestra which were exemplary — was wild and crazy and prolonged, of the sort found at sports events. No question about electricity in the air.” (The Virginia Gazette)

was born in 1953 in Los Angeles, California, where he currently resides. Over the last 20 years, he has established himself as one of Hollywood's leading film composers. Elfman has written close to 50 film scores featuring his unique sound, including Batman, Spider-man, Men in Black, Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Pee Wee’s Big Adventure. In addition to these signature soundtracks, he has scored such diverse films as Big Fish, Good Will Hunting, Dolores Claiborne, Midnight Run, To Die For, Dead Presidents, Sommersby, and Chicago. For television, Elfman created the infectious themes to The Simpsons and Desperate Housewives. His honors include a Grammy and three Academy Award nominations.
Elfman's first experience in performance and composition was for a French theatrical troupe "Le Grand Magic Circus" at the age of 18. The following year, he collaborated with his brother Richard performing musical theater on the streets of California. Elfman then worked with a “surrealistic musical cabaret” for six years, using this outlet to explore multifarious musical genres. For 17 years he wrote and performed with his rock band Oingo Boingo, producing such hits as "Weird Science" and "Dead Man's Party."
In 2005, Elfman worked with longtime collaborator Tim Burton on the films Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and the stop-motion animated musical Corpse Bride. Other recent projects include the scores for the Disney CGI animated feature A Day in the Life of Wilbur Robinson and Paramount’s adaptation of Charlotte’s Web.
Elfman is self-taught and has had no formal musical training. Serenada Schizophrana is his first orchestral composition written specifically for the concert hall. As the featured music in the soundtrack to the IMAX film Deep Sea 3D, conducted by John Mauceri and narrated by Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet, it is receiving worldwide exposure.
