HERRMANN Suite from Psycho
RAVEL Mother Goose (complete ballet)
DANNY ELFMAN Concerto for Violin and Orchestra, "Eleven Eleven"


Associate conductor Christopher Dragon leads your Colorado Symphony in a weekend celebration of film score composers and those who influenced them. Herrmann’s ingenious use of strings conveys a “black and white sound” on his suite from Psycho, which mirrors the black and white images of Hitchcock’s haunting cinematic thriller. Ravel, who heavily influenced future generations of film composers, originally wrote Mother Goose as a piano duet but later revised and expanded the original work into an orchestrated piece. The program is capped by the legendary Danny Elfman, who composed the scores for treasured films such as Batman, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Good Will Hunting. Brilliant soloist Sandy Cameron performs the Colorado premiere of Elfman’s Concerto for Violin and Orchestra, “Eleven Eleven,” a piece she helped debut in 2017.
