2NX are proud to announce the follow up to their Globe Stepping project. The focus moves from cutting-edge dance to the forefront of contemporary classical music, in the shape of one of the forerunners of the now-popular new minimalism, which has made stars of the likes of Ludovico Einaudi and Max Richter.
Alexis Ffrench is renowned for his evocative solo piano work, combining a contemporary feel with classic sensibility; the embodiment of beauty and calm in an otherwise frantic world.
This new collection of works for piano and chamber strings brings with it an emotional intensity that looks set to cement Alexis' reputation as a composer of rare and contemplative beauty - with powerful contrasts, epic landscapes and, above all, timeless melodies.
The delicate, motivic interplay between parts is at times reminiscent of Fauré, while the graceful minimalism recalls more recent works, such as that of Max Richter and Clark’s Black Stone from his 2012 release Iradelphic on Warp Records.
Stolen Lullabies also includes four brand new bonus arrangements of some of the highlights from his previous albums, The Secret Piano and Piano Karma, both of which were 'Albums of the Week' on Classic FM Radio and have gone on to enjoy great popularity with Classic FM listeners.
