Hamlet (Royal National Theatre, directed by Sir Nicholas Hytner)

Alex was composer on the sold out production that was performed in both the Oliver and Lytellton Theatres, a European tour and broadcast live to cinemas.

“The score of Hamlet, by Alex Baranowski is distinctly different to what we’re used to hearing in a theatre. With a more cinematic sound, Baranowski’s music is not limited to scene change, it represents characters in their entrance, and it underscores – even when sometimes we don’t notice it – to add spookiness to the piece. It works well in the theatrical scenes to accompany Hamlet’s play, and worked particularly well when characters were in motion. Baranowski’s tension filled score kept the audience on the edge of their seats and was well suited toHamlet, both the character and the play.”
