    Jonny Greenwood's "Doghouse," Featuring Music of "Norwegian Wood," Gets US Premiere in NYC, Webcast Live on Q2

    Jonny Greenwood's orchestral piece Doghouse, featuring music also used in his score to the film Norwegian Wood, receives its US premiere in performances by Ensemble Signal with the Wordless Music Orchestra and conductor Brad Lubman at the New York Society for Ethical Culture tonight and tomorrow night. The concerts, part of the Wordless Music series, also include the first New York City performances of Philip Glass / David Bowie / Brian Eno's Symphony No. 4 ("Heroes," based on the music of Bowie and Eno) and György Ligeti's Chamber Concerto. Nadia Sirota of Q2, WQXR's 24-hour new-music stream, hosts a live audio webcast and online chat from the concert tonight at 8 PM ET; listen in online at wqxr.org.

    Doghouse is Greenwood’s largest and longest orchestral work to date. Scored for string trio and orchestra, Doghouse premiered in February 2010 with the BBC Concert Orchestra and conductor Robert Ziegler. The score incorporates music also used for Greenwood's original soundtrack to the film Norwegian Wood, recently released on Nonesuch Records. The premiere formed part of Greenwood’s ongoing residency with the BBC Concert Orchestra, begun in 2004 with the premiere of Popcorn Superhet Receiver, which itself was incorporated into Greenwood's acclaimed score for There Will Be Blood.

    "Jonny Greenwood's role as the mastermind guitarist in Radiohead has grown all the more intriguing as that group has focused less and less on guitar," writes the Wall Street Journal's Andy Battaglia in a preview of the weekend's concerts. "In terms of sheer musical scale, however, his sideline role as a composer of orchestral music might just trump what he's been up to with his band." Read more at wsj.com.

    To pick up a copy of the Norwegian Wood and There Will Be Blood soundtracks by Jonny Greenwood, head to the Nonesuch Store, where orders include high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s of the album at checkout.

    The film Norwegian Wood, director Tran Anh Hung’s adaptation of Haruki Murakami’s bestselling novel for which Greenwood wrote the score, receives its Australian premiere as part of the Sydney Film Festival, which kicks off June 8.

    An orchestral suite from Greenwood's Norwegian Wood score, arranged by Robert Ziegler, is set to premiere at the BBC Proms on August 12, with Keith Lockhart leading the BBC Concert Orchestra. It's part of the Film Music Prom at Royal Albert Hall, which also includes music by Herrmann, Ennio Morricone, John Williams, and more. For more information and tickets, visit bbc.co.uk.
