Radio 3 Live in Concert: Live from City Halls in Glasgow: BBC SSO - Schnelzer, Rachmaninov, Nielsen (part 1)

24.10.13 A Freak in Burbank was commissioned by the Stockholm Chamber Orchestra who wanted a piece that celebrated all that was great about Haydn.

Schnelzer dived headlong into this commission but at the same time began reading a biography of the filmmaker Tim Burton - and started to notice striking similarities between one of the most individual filmmakers of the last 30 years and one of the great composers of the 18th century - if not all time.

Both create works full of playfulness and transparency with almost burlesque quality to it. Slowly Tim Burton started to take over the work in Schnelzer's own words: 'I had to let him in'. The piece ended up 10% Schnelzer, 90% Burton.
