ALICE IN WONDERLAND
Label: Disney 490002
Time = 51:09
Original soundtrack from Tim Burton vision of Lewis Carroll classic, presented by Walt Disney Pictures, starring Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway. Danny Elfman anchors entire work with unusually strong main theme for Alice (often with chorus) that launches in minor but plays frequently with rich major harmonies. Opening version with "moto perpetuo" triplet figure in strings is a stunner! Orchestral sequences bring in suspense, dynamic action. "Bandersnatched" one such exciting highlight, "Alice Escapes" another, "Going To Battle" yet another. Real treat for Danny Elfman fans! Crisp recording made at Sony Scoring (orchestra), Air Lyndhurst & Abbey Road in London (choir). Pete Anthony conducts this knockout!
