In 1990, Charles M. Schulz saluted Zwilich in the Peanuts(r) strip for her flute concerto. This led to a fast friendship between the two talents and Zwilich's masterwork Peanuts(r) Gallery, a six-movement piano concerto, each movement illustrates a favorite character from the comic strip. Florida State University produced a documentary, also featured on PBS, of the collaboration that led to the creation of Peanuts(r) Gallery. The DVD is a fascinating documentary on the making of Peanuts(r) Gallery, featuring interviews with Charles M. Schulz, Jean (Mrs. Charles M.) Schulz, and composer Ellen Taaffe Zwilich about their creative processes. The video also features a live performance by the Florida State University Orchestra with piano soloist James Nalley, conducted by Alex Jimenez (including Snoopy dancing the Samba!).
