Danny Elfman – Violin Concerto “Eleven Eleven” Released

Posted March 22nd, 2019

Sony Classical has released Danny Elfman’s violin concerto “Eleven Eleven”. The concerto is performed by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra conducted by John Mauceri  and featuring Sandy Cameron, violin.

The album also includes “The Piano Quartet” performed by the Berlin Philharmonic Piano Quartet featuring Andreas Buschatz, violin · Matthew Hunter, viola · Knut Weber, cello · Markus Groh, piano.

Listen/buy the album here: https://sonyclassical.lnk.to/Elfman_ElevenEleven

The opening movement of his violin concerto “Eleven Eleven” already has a surprise in store with a remarkably complex sound. Initially, a number of sparing lines flow softly into each other, reminiscent of Samuel Barber or the famous late Metamorphosen by Richard Strauss. Elfman’s music takes listeners by the hand and draws them deeper and deeper into a fairytale world – and then the virtuoso violin soars to dizzying heights. Only later when bells and low brass come in can a sense of Hollywood pomp be felt.
