Paul Thomas Anderson’s 2007 multi-Oscar-winning historical drama is regarded as one of the greatest films of the 2000s. Voted no.1 in Total Film’s Top Ten Films of the Decade and no.3 in the BBC’s 100 Greatest Films of the 21st Century, it also picked up two Academy Awards (from eight nominations), and the Silver Bear at the Berlin Film Festival.

A sprawling epic about family, faith, power and oil, There Will Be Blood is set on the radical frontier of California’s turn-of-the-century petroleum boom, and chronicles the rise of one Daniel Plainview (an Oscar-winning turn from Daniel Day-Lewis), who transforms himself from a down-and-out silver miner raising a son on his own, into a self-made oil tycoon.

The accompanying soundtrack - the first feature film score by Radiohead guitarist Greenwood - is considered a masterwork of dramatic tension.

Unsettling and powerful, it combines full orchestra with such instruments as the Ondes Martenot – a rare early electronic instrument that resembles a cross between an organ and a Theremin which Jonny has previously used on several Radiohead recordings.

With passages drawn from Arvo Pärt’s Fratres and Brahm’s Violin Concerto, the score was nominated for a Grammy Award, although an Oscar nod was ruled out due to the inclusion of previously composed material.

London Contemporary Orchestra (LCO) has been performing Greenwood’s compositions since 2008, and in 2012 recorded his score for The Master (Greenwood’s second collaboration with Paul Thomas Anderson).

Dedicated to the promotion of new music and cross-disciplinary collaboration, the LCO has collaborated with a distinguished array of artists, including Radiohead (on 2016’s A Moon Shaped Pool), Frank Ocean, Actress, Vivienne Westwood, members of Arcade Fire, Goldfrapp, Terry Riley, Beck and Foals.

Winner of the Ensemble category at the Royal Philharmonic Society Music Awards 2015, the LCO’s soundtrack output also spans BAFTA nominated Theeb, and three films starring Michael Fassbender: Slow West, Macbeth, and Assassin’s Creed.

Featuring over 50 musicians, There Will Be Blood: Live can be experienced at Symphony Hall, Birmingham, on Sunday 5 February 2017.
