This new release is a stunning collection of classical-soul, piano-led pieces composed, arranged and performed by Alexis Ffrench. It is the perfect follow up album to his chart-topping Sony Music debut, ‘Evolution,’ and includes works for solo piano, piano & orchestra, and a special guest feature from international cello superstar Tina Guo. Alexis Ffrench has high ambition. This exceptional pianist and composer who trained at the Purcell School, the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and the Royal Academy wants to bring joy to a world of troubled times. He also wants to change the way people perceive classical music and to help make it more inclusive and democratic, more relevant to the society in which we live.“In writing the album, Dreamland, I wanted to shine a light in times of darkness as an antidote to our troubled times; to give listeners an opportunity to stop, listen and breathe, if only for one three minute track. I hope listeners use Dreamland as a form of escapism, to transport them to a safe and calm oasis in which they can create time for self-care, often an afterthought in our busy, stressful working lives.” -- Alexis FfrenchTRACKLIST1.       Dreamland2.       Forever Song3.       Wishing4.       Heartbeats5.       Rivers6.       Story of You7.       One8.       These Days9.       Coming Home10.   Shine11.   Written in the Stars12.   Crest of a Wave13.   Rapture14.   Footprints in the SandOrchestra: Royal Liverpool Philharmonic OrchestraGuest artist:  Tina Guo, cello (2)
