An alumnus of the Royal Academy of Music, Guildhall School of Music and Purcell School, Alexis Ffrench is one of the most distinctive classical composers of film today. Known for his emotive music ‘of heart-aching beauty’, he has established his own unique brand of ‘classical soul’.
Recent film score work includes ‘Minimata’ (directed by Andrew Levitas), ‘The House Where The Mermaid Sleeps (directed by Yuki Tsutsumi) and ‘Plan Z’ (directed by Stuart Brennan); earning Ffrench widespread acclaim for the intensity and poignant musical characterisations that he brings to the big screen. His original commission 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 Barclaycard and Mortlach Whisky.
As a recording artist, Alexis Ffrench has seen his last two albums ‘Evolution’ (Sony Music 2018) and ‘Dreamland’ (Sony Music 2020) go to number 1 in the UK classical charts, pushing his signature piano sound in to new territory with evocative and sweeping orchestral soundscapes. The arrangements borrow from the western classical canon with shades of Debussy, Satie and Faure, infused with the poise of neo-classical minimalism and contemporary productions sensibilities more commonly associated with the pop world. He is something of a phenomenon in the classical world as one of the most streamed artists in the world (250 million streams and counting) and over 2m monthly Spotify listeners.
His concerts have taken Alexis all over the world, from Tokyo to Mew York, Milan to Paris, and with appearances at the iconic Latitude Festival, Classic BRITs with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Royal Albert Hall as well as London’s famous South Bank, Alexis has firmly established himself at the forefront of his genre.
