There Will Be Blood
A co-presentation between the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and the 66th Melbourne International Film Festival.
Widely regarded as one of the most influential soundtracks in recent years, Jonny Greenwood’s There Will Be Blood score will be performed by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra while Paul Thomas Anderson’s Academy Award® winning film – recently announced as The New York Times' #1 best film of the 21st century so far – plays on the big screen.
The sensational soundtrack features passages from Greenwood’s compositions Popcorn Superhet Receiver and Bodysong (the latter used in the track Convergence), as well as works by Arvo Pärt and Brahms. All these cues have been collated into one special performance, offering a complete representation of the original film, shown in a striking new light.
Conducted by 31-year old Hugh Brunt (UK), this is one event not to be missed!
