Info for Evolution
UK contemporary pianist and composer Alexis Ffrench marks his return with his brand new studio album Evolution.
This stunning new album sees Alexis propel himself to yet further heights, Evolution features a host of guests, from international classical harpist Lavinia Meijer and Boston-based electro folk duo Tall Heights; to The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Adam Klemans.
Speaking of the themes and meaning behind the new album, Alexis Ffrench says: “‘Evolution’ is inspired by the extremes and inherent fragility of the human experience - loss, love, birth, sorrow, vulnerability, triumph and despair but, above all, our ability to come through adversity and radiate the best versions of ourselves. This album explores the beauty that lies beneath and the truths that bind us.”
As likely to be found listening to Kendrick Lamar and Chance the Rapper as Bach and Beethoven, Alexis Ffrench’s combination of classical training and love for R&B and roots music has helped define his unique sound. Trying to break the rigorous and academic preconceptions of classical music, Alexis Ffrench now finds himself as one of the leading voices of a new wave of composers, redefining a genre made accessible by artists of the stature of Ludovico Einaudi and Michael Nyman.
Alexis’ prominence in the digital world shows that his music speaks to many people and he is at the forefront of an exciting movement to make classical music more accessible for all.
UK contemporary composer and pianist Alexis Ffrench is one of the UK’s most distinctive and relevant artists. Alexis is already an established star in the streaming world - his music speaking to a wide audience and transcending all boundaries and genres. As likely as one would be to find him listening to Kendrick Lamar or Chance the Rapper as Bach, his combination of classical training and love for R&B and Roots music has helped define his unique sound. Trying to break the rigorous and academic preconceptions of classical music, Alexis has now found himself as one of the leading voices of a new wave of composers, redefining the genre made accessible by Ludovico Einaudi and Michael Nyman. Inspired in his youth by icons such as Stevie Wonder and Bob Marley, Alexis felt destined to pursue a career in music, but without a piano at home, he first developed his skills by silently playing the dining room table. He didn’t allow the absence of an instrument to hold him back, and is an alumnus of the most prestigious music institutions in the country: Purcell School of Music, Royal Academy of Music and Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Alexis released Bluebird in September 2017, which reached over 1 million streams in just 7 weeks. Alexis’ brand new album 'Evolution' is out now.
