I'm looking for specific pieces of Classical music that were influential to Danny Elfman in creating the score for Edward Scissorhands.
I know there is a Tchaikovsky's "Nutcracker" influence and quote.
I'm looking for the influences for the Choral sounds that he uses, and any other. I need the titles and composers.
This is for a research presentation - so please help.
Re: Danny Elfman - Edward Scissorhands - Influences
i know this won 't help that much, but the batman theme that he wrote is literally copied note for note from a cello concerto (i know its not edward scissorhands, but all his music sounds similar). my buddy, who is a really good cello player, was practicing it once and i was like holy crap, thats where elfman got batman from. i'll ask him the next time we talk what it was, then i'll let you know. thats about all the help i can give you.
