Casino Royale will be screened for the first time with the score performed live by a full symphony orchestra as part of our ever popular Films in Concert series.

This will be the first time an entire Bond score has ever officially been performed live, as the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra play David Arnold’s powerful score in sync with the film on the big screen. David Arnold, who has scored five Bond films, will discuss his collaboration with the 007 franchise in a pre-concert question and answer session.

Tickets on sale 9am UK time tomorrow - http://www.royalalbe...ale-in-concert/

I've been to a couple of these and they're incredible, but that's a slightly disappointing choice; I'd much rather see a Barry one.

I was lucky enough to see my all time favourite film, Jurassic Park, in the same circumstances last December. It was amazing.

 

CR is one of my favourite Bond films,, although the music isn't the best for this kind of thing, but alas the one friend who would have been up for it can't make it anyway.

 

I read that this is the first in a new agreement that has been made, so I hope we get, say, The Living Daylights, soon.

This has taken a slightly mournful quality given todays news, You Know My Name is easily my favourite Bond theme. RIP Chris Cornell

I know what you mean, however I also think it's good to see a newer Bond film get the limelight like this. The older films already get their fair share of attention. Casino Royale's score is pretty good, too.

For my part, I would like to see OHMSS at the RAH in this format.

Agreed; my choice would be that or, perhaps less likely: Moonraker. But let's face it, if they did a Barry it would be Goldfinger.

Yep. Look, I like Goldfinger, and it's an important film in the franchise. I get all that. But the fawning it receives goes overboard. As if nothing in the franchise ever bettered it. I think that's a narrow mindset. Give me Barry's Moonraker score over Goldfinger any day of the week.

I guess the only issue with doing OHMSS is I can't imagine they'd get the same sound for weird synth thing that Barry used at several points in the score: the only time I've heard anyone trying to recreate that it's been horrible! :)
