“It was an inspiring example of how to do a film music concert that should be forever imitated – a thoughtfully curated and varied program honoring the important marriage the music has to images while also letting the music breathe and come to life on its own.” —LA Weekly

"If Tim Burton is the virtuoso behind his films' visuals, then Danny Elfman is his willing twin and gleeful partner in crime... A magnificent event before an adoring crowd, this concert once again proves the appeal of classic movie music played live. Elfman's presence at the concert featuring his scores was a stroke of genius." —Yorkshire Post

"'The greatest moment of my life!' proclaimed Danny Elfman as he received a triple standing ovation that cheered on his career and stunning singing performance with songs from The Nightmare Before Christmas but even though he brought down the house and closed the concert, we had already been treated to the stunningly talented BBC Concert Orchestra, the Maida Vale Singers and conductor John Mauceri leading the way...Something special happened in the old Hall and it was easy to see and feel that unique, timeless connection between music and storytelling..." —The Hollywood News
