Nils Frahm to score Heisenberg play

First Published 4 September 2017, Last Updated 4 September 2017

Elliott & Harper Productions’ first West End show Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle, which reunites much of the creative team behind The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time, will be scored by recordings from acclaimed composer, producer and pianist Nils Frahm.

Frahm’s unique blend of classical composition with elements of electronica has propelled him to international fame, and will now form the score of the new production, which begins rehearsals this week ahead of its run at Wyndham’s Theatre from 3 October 2017 to 6 January 2018.

Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle in the West End

Led by the Olivier and Tony Award-winning duo Marianne Elliott (Director) and Simon Stephens (Playwright), Heisenberg delves into the unpredictability of a world in which two strangers can meet by chance at a London train station, their lives transforming forever. You can watch the duo discuss the play with us here.

Of the announcement, Elliott said: “Simon Stephens’ play, Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle is full of beauty, wonder and surprise. I can’t think of a composer whose music better combines these elements than Nils Frahm.”

“I have been an admirer of Nils for a long time and I am thrilled to have his glorious music as the soundtrack for my production.” 

Frahm’s recent albums include Felt (2011) Screws (2012) and Spaces (2013), while his first film score release, Music for the Motion Picture Victoria, won the German Film prize for Best Soundtrack. In 2015 he launched Piano Day, an official holiday celebrating the piano via various concerts and piano-related projects around the world, and he will embark on a world tour next year which includes a stint at the Barbican Centre, London.

A surprising and life-affirming new play inspired by one of the most famous ideas in quantum physics, Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle stars Anne-Marie Duff as Georgie and Kenneth Cranham as Alex.
