    Found the info in a French film music board. The announcement is not completely public yet, should be in the next few hours.

    Translation time :

    Season 2019/20 at the PHILHARMONIE DE PARIS

    In September, Danny Elfman Week-end in presence of the composer :
    – on the 14, “chamber” evening with the Berlin Philharmonic Piano Quartet (piano/violin/alto/cello – more information later on but an original piece is announced).
    – Same day, Alice in Wonderland live concert
    – on the 15, “Symphonic Elfman” with the Brussels Philharmonic and the Flesmish Radio Choir conducted by John Mauceri : Batman, Batman Returns, Edward Scissorhands, Alice in Wonderland, Eleven Eleven (violin concerto), I forget (Serenada Schizophrana).

    Concert pass will be available starting this Saturday (16/02) at noon. Tickets some time later.

    After missing out the Nightmare Before Christmas show in London, I’ll definitely won’t be missing this.

    I’ll update with more info when available.

    Sounds great, wish I could be there.

    Elfman actually broached the news about the piano quartet to me, personally, in my brief interview two years ago. Took some time to finalize, but glad to see it’s finally being released. The other ‘chamber piece’ sounds intriguing. He’s building up quite the catalogue of concert works now.

    No mention of any new concert work so that might have been a misunderstanding.

    I’ll be there, tickets go on sale this Saturday.

    Just bought my tickets for the 3 concerts, front row!
    So excited to finally hear something different than the Burton/Elfman concerts.

    The 14th is my birthday. Really considering a very expensive trip…

    Got my pass as well. I really wasn’t into Alice’s live concert so I got the cheapest seats possible for that one. I’m not even sure I’ll attend anyway (kind of ruins the day’s schedule, in the middle of the afternoon).

    So it seems that the Saturday evening will include a new concert piece and Elfman will be there for a Q/A session.

    Yeah, same for me. I really wanted to have nice seats. So, I didn’t want to wait until May to buy individual tickets. So I bought the pass.
    But I felt the same way about the Alice concert.
    And I actually felt bad about feeling this way 😅

    Think about it. Before 2012, a symphonic Elfman concert was not even concievable. And now, we have a whole Elfman weekend. And we have second thoughts about watching a Burton film with live orchestra, even when the tickets are part of a package. I love the Alice theme. Not a huge fan of the movie. But I’ve seen Alice Live in Lucerne a few years ago. I guess that’s why it didn’t feel so necessary. And… hearing loud action music at 3,30pm before going to a chamber music concert the same evening doesn’t feel right.

    You’re actually the third person I talk to, today, mentioning the lack of motivation about going to see the Alice concert…
