Releasing two crossover albums, ‘Calm Beneath The Storm’and ‘Winter Toccata’, Richard Lennox has highlighted his musical range. Having the ability to play everything from Bach to The Beatles, musical theatre to rock ‘n’ roll, Richard’s musical grounding is vast. First discovering the instrument at the tender age of three, Richard learnt by ear before his classical training. A sufferer of Aspergers Syndrome, the illness has in fact led to his musical development, shaping him into the artist he is today.
His latest self-titled album sees Richard performing 10 classical pieces. Among this collection Richard performs works from Chopin (‘Nocturne Op. 9 No. 2’), Rachmaninoff (‘Prelude in C# Minor’) and Christian Sinding (‘Rustle of Spring’). Highlighting his range, from Satie’s beautifully understated ‘Gnossienne No.1’ to his interpretation of the complex Mendelssohn piece ‘Rondo’, Richard’s restraint and performance is impeccable throughout.
The album is set for release on October 21st.
