As Todd Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix‘s Joker awaits the results of its 11 Oscar nominations, the Hildur Guðnadóttir-composed film is set to receive the international live concert treatment.

Featuring a full orchestra, the live Joker concert event kicks off at the Eventim Apollo in London on April 30, led by the soundtrack’s original conductor and orchestrator Jeff Atmajian. The concert will then move around the UK — this time conducted by Dave Mahoney — before expanding to Europe and other international locations.

“I’m thrilled to get to see and hear Joker in the cinema with a live orchestra,” Guðnadóttir said. “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.”

Phillips added, “I speak for the entire Joker team when I say how thrilled we are to be working with Senbla and Ollie Rosenblatt on Joker – Live in Concert. I think it’s a wonderful way for audiences to experience Hildur Guðnadóttir‘s haunting and immersive score while bearing witness to Joaquin Phoenix’s descent into madness as Arthur.”

Guðnadóttir recently won major awards for her work in Joker, including a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score and a BAFTA for Best Film Music, along with an Oscar nomination for Best Original Score. On top of Joker, the Icelandic musician also won a Primetime Emmy Award and a Grammy Award for her Chernobyl score.

In related news, Joaquin Phoenix and Joker won big at the 2020 BAFTAs.
