Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood's score for the film adaptation of Haruki Murakami's book Norwegian Wood has gone from the movie screen to the concert hall. In March, Nonesuch gave U.S. listeners a chance to get their hands on the soundtrack, as previously reported. And as TKOL Part 2 points out, last weekend, the BBC Concert Orchestra delivered the premiere live performance of a piece of Greenwood's score. It was performed at the Royal Albert Hall in London under conductor Keith Lockhart, who Americans might recognize from the Boston Pops' nationally televised Fourth of July spectacles.

Video of the live premiere is below, via TKOL Part 2. Audio is available to download at 5 Against 4.
