Symphony San Jose: From Screen to Stage

March 23 - March 24

Performances:

  • Sat., March 23, 2024 @ 7:30pm
  • Sun., March 24, 2024 @ 2:30pm

Many classical composers have been seduced by cinema, none more so than Erich Korngold and Dmitri Shostakovich. Korngold was the first composer with international stature to compose for Hollywood. In Russia, Shostakovich was having similar success with the new medium.

There have also been film/tv composers lured to the concert hall. Known for his iconic scores for The Simpsons, Nightmare Before Christmas, Batman and more, Danny Elfman is a four-time Oscar nominee and one of the most revered composers in Hollywood. His violin concerto was written for this concert’s soloist, Sandy Cameron, who herself can be heard on numerous Hollywood soundtracks.

Whether writing for stage or screen, these composers’ music tells a story.

Program:

  • Erich Korngold: Overture to The Sea Hawk
  • Danny Elfman: Violin Concerto
  • Dmitri Shostakovich: Symphony No. 1
