There Will Be Blood


Greenwood There Will Be Blood

Hugh Brunt conductor

Regarded as the best film of the 21st Century so far, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra will perform Jonny Greenwood’s There Will Be Blood score while Paul Thomas Anderson’s Academy Award® winning film 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.
