About

Alessio Bax dedicates an album to his daughter Mila, compiling works from his past Signum albums – including performances with Lucille Chung and Southbank Sinfonia – as well as a new recording of the Nocturne from Grieg’s 'Lyric Pieces'.

Alessio begins the album with a touching dedication: “This album is not only a carefully curated playlist of soothing classics to calm a baby and perhaps make him or her fall asleep quicker. It is also a gift from parents to their children, with the hope that they will share music with their loved ones, not just to entertain them but also to enrich their lives. It is a gift from me to other parents, so that at the end of what might have been a challenging and difficult day, they might put their feet up and enjoy a seamless stream of great music spanning three centuries. And it is a little gift from me to my daughter that I hope will enable me, one day, to say thank you for everything she has done and will continue to do to for us and for this world.”
