March 22nd. Too excited.February 4, 2019 at 3:26 am #98788lonzoeParticipant
Nice, but is it digital only or will there be a pressed CD also?February 4, 2019 at 11:47 am #98789
CD in Europe from my research. I could preorder it from a local webstore that does not do digital.
Great news and right at the same time as Dumbo; quite the feast after several light months…February 10, 2019 at 3:03 pm #98797digarfloParticipantFebruary 18, 2019 at 1:56 pm #98798
Amazon link. CD!February 18, 2019 at 3:38 pm #98799
Also available a bit cheaper on Amazon.de for the rest of Europe… 😉February 19, 2019 at 4:25 am #98802lonzoeParticipant
Well Amazon US has the album listed as well, however they haven’t revealed the price yet. And at the moment the release date is slated for April 5 instead of late March. Looking forward to it regardless, but since this is being released by Sony Classical hopefully it’ll be a pressed CD instead of a CD-R.February 21, 2019 at 12:52 am #988039fingeredElfParticipant
Amazon in the United States now has it available for preorder: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07MCDXXJD:February 22, 2019 at 2:28 pm #98804
‘Fantasma’ is now available to buy if you can’t wait…February 22, 2019 at 6:54 pm #98805
Or start a 30 days Amazon Prime trial if you can.
Edit : and it’s also available on most streaming platforms.March 3, 2019 at 1:30 pm #98812boingomusicParticipant
Fantasma is on Youtube, and seems to be and official post from Sony and Mauceri. So, I guess I can post it here :March 9, 2019 at 10:11 pm #98821March 22, 2019 at 4:35 pm #98866sajrocksParticipant
now up on spotify u.s. whole. new. level. the quartet is BEYOND.March 22, 2019 at 8:20 pm #98867
My CD arrived today.
Listened to it three times. Each time I listened to a movement I thought, “No, this one’s my favourite.”March 24, 2019 at 2:04 am #98870
This work just reinforces my notion that Elfman is, indeed, God.March 24, 2019 at 9:17 pm #98872
Good thing Dumbo is only a few days away because I’ve done nothing but listen to this for the last few days, and I’ll probably overplay it soon.
I wasn’t sure about the ‘One concert work per year’ thing as it seemed like ruling oneself out of work for 1/4 of the year was a very bad career movie, but now I’m all for it.March 24, 2019 at 9:37 pm #98873
I mean, seeing the current state of film music in Hollywood, Elfman just doesn’t belong anymore. I also wasn’t sure about his career shift but indeed, I’ll be happy with smaller film projects and concert work for the last part of his musical journey.March 25, 2019 at 5:59 pm #98874
I read Elfman’s already lined up commissions for a cello concerto AND a percussion concerto.March 25, 2019 at 7:05 pm #98875
Yup, I hope it’s for the Paris week-end…March 25, 2019 at 8:38 pm #98876
I wonder what (if anything) came from that very odd-sounding orchestral work he said he was working with after Dumbo.March 25, 2019 at 9:32 pm #98877March 25, 2019 at 10:25 pm #98878boingomusicParticipant
Why do I feel like we’re gonna get some chamber ensemble playing & Danny singing new versions of Oingo Boingo classics?!?
In that awkward interview we watched a few weeks ago, he said something about revisiting his songs, but not in a band… and then said he couldn’t say more. And now he speaks about a semi-secret project involving his voice and a chamber orchestra… coincidence ???March 26, 2019 at 4:58 am #98879
He made it seem like it was new material and not Boingo related. Maybe a new solo rock album with chamber orchestra? That would be sweet! I’m drooling at the possibility of an Elfman cello concerto.March 26, 2019 at 11:51 pm #98884ThorParticipant
Unlike DUMBO, this album I quite like. I was not as ‘wowed’ by the violin concerto on album, as I was when I saw the Youtube video of the performance, but plenty to decipher and devour here. The piano quartet is also very good; Elfman’s most ‘contemporary classical’ work (far more than “Serenada Schizophrana” ever was).March 28, 2019 at 3:04 am #98885Ryan KeaveneyKeymaster
Holy shit, “IV. Giacoso. Lacrimae” from 7:50 to 9:03 blew my mind.
