The London Contemporary Orchestra has posted a video of rehearsals ahead of a live performance of a popular film soundtrack at the Brighton Dome on Monday (February 6).

A 360-degree behind-the-scenes video of rehearsals of Jonny Greenwood’s There Will Be Blood score was recorded on Monday (January 30) at the Southbank.

The Radiohead guitarist and keyboard player joined the LCO for the rehearsals and a performance at the Royal Festival Hall, but will not be part of the Brighton show which features more than 50 orchestral players and uses the Ondes martenot, a rare early electronic instrument.

Watching the film with the score performed live is a rare treat for music fans and lovers of cinema alike. Paul Thomas Anderson’s 2007 epic historical drama is regarded as one of the best films of the 2000s.

It was voted at no.1 in Total Film’s top ten films of the decade, no.3 in the BBC’s 100 greatest films of the 21st Century, it won two Oscars (nominated for eight) and won the Silver Bear at the Berlin Film Festival that year.
