[Upcoming Event] Danny Elfman’s Music From The Films Of Tim Burton

THE MPO PRESENTS ‘DANNY ELFMAN’S MUSIC FROM THE FILMS OF TIM BURTON’ AT DEWAN FILHARMONIK PETRONAS!



Kuala Lumpur, March 2015 - The Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) will bedazzle its audience in the merriment of film music on Friday, 6 March 2015 and Saturday, 7 March 2015 at 8.30 p.m. at Dewan Filharmonik PETRONAS, KLCC.

Themed Danny Elfman’s Music from the Films of Tim Burton, these concerts are in continuation of the MPO’s tribute to film music.

Prior to this, it has presented concerts themed The Golden Age of Film Music, Symphonic Oscars (2009), A Tribute to John Williams (2011), Romantic Hollywood (2012), The Music of James Bond and The Music of Harry Potter (both in 2013).

Danny Elfman’s darkly sonorous music soundtracks are the audio manifestations of Tim Burton’s magical visions. Together, they breathe colour into each other’s worlds; the music warm and inviting, elegant and haunting, unearthing the precise mood of the films.

Four-time Oscar nominee Elfman has established himself as one of the most versatile and accomplished film composers in the industry. He has collaborated with Gus Van Sant, Sam Raimi, Ang Lee, Rob Marshall and Peter Jackson. In addition to his film work, he wrote the iconic themes for television series The Simpsons and Desperate Housewives.

On the other hand, Burton is widely regarded as one of the cinema’s most imaginative filmmakers who enjoys great success both in the live-action and animation arenas. He has received Oscar nominations for the critically-acclaimed Frankenweenie (2012) and Corpse Bride (2005), and a Golden Globe nominee for the epic fantasy Alice in Wonderland (2010), a film that grossed a billion dollars at the worldwide box office.

Listen to the MPO performing excerpts from popular movies such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Beetlejuice, Sleepy Hollow, Mars Attack!, Planet of the Apes, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Batman, Big Fish and Edward Scissorhands.

The MPO will be led by Sarah Hicks whose great musicianship has led major orchestras in the USA including the Philadelphia Orchestra. She has also collaborated with diverse artists, from Josh Groban to Sting, Dmitri Hvorostovsky and Sumi Jo. An active opera conductor, she has led productions of Verdi’s Aida, Mozart’s Die Zauberflote and Humperdink’s Hansel und Gretel.
Let’s join this unmissable celebration of film music, only at DFP! The concerts will also feature the Young Choral Academy Chorus and boy soprano Jayson Lim.
