JOKER - LIVE IN CONCERT:
SEE TODD PHILLIPS’ ACCLAIMED FILM ACCOMPANIED BY A LIVE ORCHESTRA PERFORMING THE AWARD-WINNING SCORE
Joker is nominated for 11 Academy Awards, more than any other film, including Best Picture, Best Director Todd Phillips, Best Actor Joaquin Phoenix, and Best Original Music/Score by Hildur Guðnadóttir
Golden Globe winner for Best Actor and Best Original Score
BAFTA winner for Best Actor and Best Original Score
Critics’ Choice Award winner for Best Actor and Best Score
On 30 April, Todd Phillips’ ground-breaking, award-winning film Joker will be screened with the accompaniment of a live orchestra playing composer Hildur Guðnadóttir’s award-winning score for the first time ever, for a limited engagement. The tour’s World Premiere will take place at London’s Eventim Apollo on the 30th before it embarks on an international schedule.
Central to the emotional journey Joaquin Phoenix’s character Arthur Fleck takes throughout the movie is Guðnadóttir’s beautifully haunting, BAFTA and Golden Globe-winning and Academy Award-nominated score. The fusion of looming industrial soundscapes with raw, emotive string-led melodies - led by a lone cello - creates a melancholic shroud marked with moments of hope, which unfolds gradually to become a fever pitch of disquieting tension.
This extraordinary music will be brought to life by a full orchestra to create a vivid, visceral and entirely new Joker viewing experience. Performed live, Guðnadóttir’s inimitable score illuminates further the emotional weight, texture and atmosphere of Phoenix’s captivating portrayal.
The London opening of Joker - Live In Concert will be conducted by Jeff Atmajian - the conductor and orchestrator of the original soundtrack - with SENBLA’s Dave Mahoney conducting the UK Tour dates.
One of the most acclaimed young composers of her generation described by The Times as “music to Hollywood’s ear”, and the first-ever solo female winner of the Golden Globe for Best Original Score, Hildur Guðnadóttir is also known as the Grammy-winning composer of HBO’s celebrated miniseries Chernobyl.
On Joker - Live In Concert, Hildur Guðnadóttir said: “I'm thrilled to get to see and hear Joker in the cinema with a live orchestra. When we recorded the music, the orchestra brought such depth and detailed attention to the performances that we were all literally holding our breaths during most of the recording sessions. It was a beautiful trip. I’m so happy to get to go there again and for an audience to experience that too.”
