Season 3 of The Great sees Catherine (Elle Fanning) and Peter (Nicholas Hoult) attempt to make their marriage work after some seemingly insurmountable problems. Peter witnessed his own attempted murder at Catherine’s hands and she also imprisoned all of his friends. On top of this, Peter is at a loose end playing First Husband to Catherine’s reign, so he busies himself with fathering, hunting and salty culinary ventures. But they’re not enough to keep him contented as visions of his late father (played by Jason Isaacs), gets in his head about his failures as Peter the Great’s son. Catherine the Great starts making a name for herself beyond her borders and inspired by a visit from the US ambassador, sets up a conference where peasants, nobles and merchants can all give their input on developing a new Russia. She learns that even the best political leaders sometimes need to make compromises in order to progress. TV-MA | 45mins

Nathan Barr is an Emmy-winning composer and has received critical acclaim for his unmatched versatility, incorporating eclectic instruments from musical cultures across the world. Recent projects include the hit Netflix original series The Diplomat; season 2 of Amazon Studios/Legendary’s Carnival Row; Hulu/FX’s The Patient; BBC/Amazon Studios’ A Very British Scandal; and Ryan Murphy’s Netflix series Halston and Hollywood, which earned Nathan an Emmy Award for Best Main Title Theme. Nathan’s upcoming projects include Warner Bros’ upcoming horror film Salem’s Lot, directed by Gary Dauberman; Imagine/Apple TV’s The Beanie Bubble; and Season 3 of Hulu’s The Great. Nathan’s hallmark adaptability has led him to scoring a diverse roster of some of television’s biggest shows. He scored all six seasons of FX’s The Americans, which earned him an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music. Nathan’s music can also be heard in all seven seasons of HBO’s Emmy-winning and fan-favorite series, True Blood, and on Netflix’s Hemlock Grove, for which Nathan earned his second Emmy nomination for main title theme music. In 2018, Nathan returned to score the third season of Amazon’s top show and acclaimed con-man drama Sneaky Pete, as well as Season 2 of AMC’s multi-generational western epic The Son. With Emmy nominations for both The Americans and Hemlock Grove, Nathan has the distinction of being the first composer to have two nominations in the Main Title category in the same year. His recent score to A Very British Scandal also earned Nathan an Emmy nomination for Best Original Score to a Limited Series.

Alongside his extensive career in television, Nathan has a long record of scoring successful films as he approaches his 45th feature. A frequent collaborator with gore-horror master Eli Roth, Nathan scored his early cult-classics Cabin Fever and Hostel – some of Nathan’s other feature scores include box office hit thriller The Boy Next Door; Eli Roth’s fantasy horror film The House With A Clock In Its Walls; Alan Ball/Amazon Studios’ coming-of-age drama Uncle Frank; and the Netflix original action film Kate, directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan.

In addition to writing his scores, Nathan performs many of the instruments heard in his compositions, and is skilled in many styles ranging from orchestral to rock. He is known for his collection and inclusion of rare and unusual instruments from around the world, such as a human bone trumpet from Tibet, dismantled pianos, a rare Glass Armonica, and gourd cellos. The gem of his collection is a 3 manual, 19 rank Wurlitzer Theater Organ with 1,366 pipes. The organ lived on the scoring stage at 20th Century Fox from 1928-1998, and can be heard in dozens of scores by legendary composers such as Bernard Herrmann, Alex North, Jerry Goldsmith, and John Williams. It is now the centerpiece of Nathan’s newly-constructed Bandrika Studios, an 8,000 sq ft scoring stage and recording facility conceived by Nathan as a permanent home for this history-rich instrument. Featured in Variety and The Wall Street Journal, Bandrika has already established itself as a world-class recording space and a part of Barr’s increasingly unique palette.
