Described by Classic FM as ‘refreshingly original’, Alexander Chapman Campbell's music has become known for its striking beauty and originality. Here the composer's piano is joined by voice and four string players.

For the love of life sees me returning to the piano, but this time supported by the forces of four string players from the Scottish ensemble, Mr McFall’s Chamber, and the powerfully expressive voice of Hannah Rarity. After many years of working alone at the piano, combined with months of lockdown restrictions, it was an amazing experience to write for and play music with others.

The collection is a celebration of the essential beauty of the human spirit and its capacity to overcome adversity. We’re teetering upon the edge; while slowly recovering from a global pandemic we’re faced with the much broader sickness of our natural world. Rarely have humans experienced a challenge so global in its scale, one that demands such a collective response.

Deep down in the human heart, I believe, is a light of immense beauty and strength. Now is the time to find that light, and to lift it up. As an offering of hope, this album is my personal contribution.
