Music by Danny Elfman

Sony Classical has released on August 4 the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack of Tulip Fever, featuring music by four-time Academy Award® nominee and Grammy Award®-winning composer Danny Elfman. The movie will be in theaters on August 25.

ABOUT TULIP FEVER
Based on the best-seller novel by Deborah Moggach, Tulip Fever follows a married woman (Alicia Vikander) in 17th century Amsterdam, who begins a passionate affair with an artist (Dane DeHaan) hired to paint her portrait. The lovers gamble on the booming market for tulip bulbs as a way to raise money to run away together.

Alicia Vikander is currently in the midst of what is often called a “moment,” having won an Oscar® for her performance in The Danish Girl and has recently starred in several other high-profile films including Jason Bourne and The Light Between Oceans. The film also stars Academy Award® winners Christoph Waltz and Judi Dench.

ABOUT DANNY ELFMAN
Over the last 30 years, four-time Oscar® nominee Danny Elfman has established himself as one of the most versatile and accomplished film composers in the industry. He has collaborated with such directors as Tim Burton, David O. Russell, Gus Van Sant, Sam Raimi, Paul Haggis, Ang Lee, Rob Marshall, Guillermo del Toro, Brian De Palma, and Peter Jackson. Beginning with his first score on Tim Burton’s Pee-wee’s Big Adventure, Elfman has scored a broad range of films, including: Milk (Oscar® nominated), Good Will Hunting (Oscar® nominated), Big Fish (Oscar® nominated), Men in Black (Oscar® nominated), Edward Scissorhands, Wanted, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Mission: Impossible, Planet of the Apes, A Simple Plan, To Die For, Spider-Man (1 & 2), Batman, Dolores Claiborne, Sommersby, Chicago, Dick Tracy, The Nightmare Before Christmas and Alice in Wonderland.

Elfman’s recent work includes David O. Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook and American HustleMr. Peabody & Sherman, Tim Burton’s Big Eyes, Errol Morris’ The Unknown KnownGoosebumps for Sony Pictures, Fifty Shades of Grey, Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, Disney’s Alice Through the Looking Glass, Universal Pictures’ sequel Fifty Shades Darker, and Tate Taylor’s Girl on the Train.

A native of Los Angeles, Elfman grew up loving film music. He travelled the world as a young man, absorbing its musical diversity. He helped found the band Oingo Boingo, and came to the attention of a young Tim Burton, who asked him to write the score for Pee-wee’s Big Adventure. (25 years later, the two have forged one of the most fruitful composer-director collaborations in film history.) In addition to his film work, Elfman wrote the iconic theme music for The Simpsons and Desperate Housewives. He also composed a symphony Serenada Schizophrana for Carnegie Hall, an overture The Overeager Overture for the Hollywood Bowl, Iris—a Cirque du Soleil show at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre and most recently, Elfman’s violin concerto No. 1 which had its world premiere in Prague on June 21st. Danny Elfman’s Music From the Films of Tim Burton had its concert premiere at London’s Royal Albert Hall. “Having a particular style is not bad,” says Elfman, “but I prefer to push myself in the direction of being a composer who you never know what he’s doing next.”
