A little Googling found this site, which has a few I'm vaguely familar with but had forgotten, such as Schickele's Thurber's Dogs, Stravinsky's The Rake's Progress, and Rachmaninoff's Isle of the Dead. Most of them, however, are new to me.

If you follow the links on the site I posted, you'll find the author's home page, in which he discusses his interest in a similar, though different, format - presenting a concert of art-inspired pieces with a presentation of the pieces projected on a screen during the performance (similar to the Lord of Rings Symphony format I mentioned earlier.
You may want to contact him, Shos, as his interest sounds similar to yours. (I first thought I might have stumbled onto your website, but I see he is younger than I.)

Copyright and marketing could be a nice retirement income!

“You see, there is something very important, that the vast majority of both consumers and video professionals don’t know: ALL modern video cameras and camcorders that shoot in h.264 or mpeg2, come with a license agreement that says that you can only use that camera to shoot video for ‘personal use and non-commercial’ purposes (go on, read your manuals).”
