For Joe Wright’s Winston Churchill wartime drama, the director initially suggested solo piano but also, composer Marianelli says, “great propulsion, great momentum forward,” all conveying “the sense of restlessness of the man.” Enter world-class soloist Vikingur Olafsson. The Icelandic pianist was “particularly versed in minimalism, with an expressiveness that wasn’t remotely romantic,” Marianelli says. He quickly expanded the scope of the score to be more fully orchestral.
