“I don’t see a hierarchy in music. In my own music, I have the freedom to express anything I want and put my feelings out in a positive way.” – Alexis Ffrench
An alumnus of the Royal Academy of Music, Guildhall School of Music and Purcell School, Alexis Ffrench is one of the most distinctive neo-classical composers in film today. Known for his emotive music of “heartaching beauty,” he has established his own unique brand of “classical soul.”
Recent film scores include THE HOUSE WHERE THE MERMAID SLEEPS (directed by Yukihiko Tsutsumi), and PLAN Z (directed by Stuart Brennan), earning Ffrench widespread acclaim for the intensity and poignant musical characterizations he brings to the big screen. His original commissioned music has also been used to great effect in global advertising campaigns; most recently a partnership for SKODA alongside luminaries such as Paloma Faith. Previous major advertising campaigns include Barelaycard and Mortlach Whisky.
As a recording artist, Alex has seen his two most recent albums, ‘Dreamland’ and ‘Evolution’ (Sony Music) go to #1 in the UK classical charts, pushing his signature piano sound into new territory with evocative and sweeping orchestral soundscapes. His concerts have taken him all over the world, and include appearances at the iconic Latitude Festival, Classic BRITS with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Royal Albert Hall and London’s famous South Bank.
