There Will Be Blood: Live

‘Sparse and at times just plain peculiar – but in a brilliantly original way. It's magnificent’ ★★★★★ The Independent

Hugh Brunt Conductor
Cynthia Millar Ondes Martenot
Galya Bisengalieva Violin
Oliver Coates Cello

Paul Thomas Anderson's Oscar-winning film is accompanied by a live orchestral performance of Jonny Greenwood's (Radiohead) score. A masterwork of dramatic tension, instrumental experimentation and musical bricolage – it integrates works by Arvo Pärt and Brahms – the soundtrack is realised in a special performance edition by the London Contemporary Orchestra.

LCO is dedicated to the promotion of new music and cross-disciplinary collaboration, and has worked with a distinguished array of artists, including Radiohead, Secret Cinema, Vivienne Westwood, members of Arcade Fire, Boiler Room, Goldfrapp, Terry Riley, Beck and Foals. 

'the effect was superb… a singular audio-visual journey into a heart of darkness’ ★★★★ The Times
