Oct 4 by Paul Katula ... The motion picture composer Danny Elfman has a style all his own, as evidenced in music from many classic offbeat and spooky movies. Rochelle features themes from "The Nightmare Before Christmas," "Spider-Man," "Beetlejuice," along with a few others. In general, more attention is needed on the phrasing in the second movement. Notes don't make sense by themselves and can't really be played independent of other notes in the phrases. Rather, the shape of each phrase should be considered. Even in the softer movement, although the few crescendi were nicely done, a trumpet line rises and falls in terms of pitch, so it would make sense to rise and fall (or surprise us) in dynamic level as well. Repeated eighths are often without accent, played at the same dynamic for all notes, and this has the effect of throwing off the rhythm and weakening the overall effect of those great hits.
