It’s no coincidence that Jeff Beal’s film music career began to take off with his work on the acclaimed film Pollock (2000). Beal is a five-time EMMY® winner, and his approach is a favourite for more sophisticated works. His TV credits include HBO’s Rome, Carnivàle and the Netflix series House of Cards. His documentary work includes Blackfish, Weiner, The Queen of Versailles, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power and Boston, a documentary about the history of the Boston Marathon. Film projects include Shock and Awe (directed by Rob Reiner) and Bigger (directed by George Gallo).
Recently, Jeff Beal’s performing, conducting and composing worlds have begun converging. Beal conducted the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center in the première of House of Cards in Concert, with further performances in Miami, the Netherlands, Denmark and Jerusalem. He also led the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra for the ‘live-to-picture’ première of Boston, and the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra for his score to Buster Keaton’s 1926 film The General. New commissions include works for the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, New West Symphony, Smuin Ballet, Brooklyn Youth Chorus, Oregon Ballet Theater and Los Angeles Master Chorale.
