Jonny Greenwood's music is centre-stage at the Holland Festival on 16 June 2012, when the Amsterdam Sinfonietta give the first performance of a new Suite from 'There Will Be Blood', together with a performance of his Popcorn Superhet Receiver.
The new Suite lasts 16 minutes and is scored for string orchestra (min 10.8.6.6.4) and ondes martenot (or oboe). It comprises 6 movements, which correspond to the track names on the original soundtrack recording:
1. Open Spaces; 2. Future Markets; 3. HW/Hope of New Fields; 4. Henry Plainview; 5. Proven Lands; 6. Oil
Perusal materials for the suite are available on request. The score can be viewed online here.
The concert takes place at the Muziekgebouw and is conducted by long-time Greenwood fan, André de Ridder, and also includes music by The National's Bryce Dessner (who also appears as performer in his own double guitar concerto).
The orchestra repeat the programme in Eindhoven's Muziekgebouw on 17 June.
