Music for the Motion Picture Victoria Review

by Marcy Donelson

Appearing on the heels of his spring 2015 release, Solo, which was improvised in a single sitting on the world's (then) largest upright piano, Victoria is German composer Nils Frahm's film scoring debut. His stark, atmospheric, largely improvised score features his own keyboard work, as well as accompaniment by Anne Müller on cello, Viktor Orri Árnason on violin, and Erik K. Skodvin (Deaf Center) on guitar. The soundtrack was released on Erased Tape Records in June 2015, coinciding with the German theatrical release of the movie, a single-take German caper film directed by Sebastian Schipper.
