Amongst the hundreds of releases of autumn 2013, a new and unexpected album turned up at ClassicFM, the world's largest classical radio station. Intrigued, the Managing Editor immediately placed it as "Album of the Week" on ClassicFM Drive. The response was unprecedented. There was a flood of emails and phone-calls after every airing, the album soared into the charts and within a week Decca Records wanted to secure the rights to this beautiful and mysterious music. Since then, Alexander Chapman Campbell's debut album for solo piano, Sketches of Light, has appeared across radio and TV, featured on several chart-topping compilation albums and continues to enchant listeners around the world. His music has been described as not jazz, not classical, not improvised, but a glimpse of something new... and his second album only deepens this enigma. This concert will provide an album launch for the 27-year-old composer's second album Portraits of Earth — a collection for solo piano.
