Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood has announced four special performances of his score to Paul Thomas Anderson’s 2007 film, There Will Be Blood.
The London Contemporary Orchestra announced the news on its website, revealing that the score to the film will be performed live by the LCO, with Galya Bisengalieva on violin and Oliver Coates on cello. Spin reports Greenwood himself will accompany the orchestra on Ondes Martenot.
The LCO describes Greenwood’s score as “a masterwork of dramatic tension, instrumental experimentation and musical bricolage — it integrates work by Arvo Part and Brahms.”
The first date is January 30, 2017 at London’s Royal Festival Hall. The orchestra then plays the Birmingham Symphony Hall on February 5, Brighton’s The Dome on February 6 and Bristol’s Colston Hall on February 7.
