Joker: Live in Concert
Part of the UK and Ireland Tour, Joker: Live In Concert is coming to the Cliffs Pavilion on 25th October where the film screening will be accompanied by a live orchestra performing the award-winning score.
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 at London’s Eventim Apollo.
Central to the emotional journey of Joaquin Phoenix’s character Arthur Fleck in the film is Guðnadóttir’s beautifully haunting Academy Award, BAFTA, Golden Globe and Grammy-winning 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 tocreate 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 - LiveIn Concert will be conducted by Jeff Atmajian- the conductor and orchestrator of the original soundtrack - with SENBLA’s Dave Mahoney conducting the rest of 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 BAFTA and Golden Globe awards for Best Original Score, Hildur Guðnadóttir is also known as the Grammy-winning composer of HBO’s celebrated miniseries Chernobyl.
