om alpha1  

Alpha consists of three classical musicians, who have all made their mark on European music life - Bolette Roed on recorder, Peter Navarro-Alonso, classical saxophone and David Hildebrandt, classical percussion.

Alpha’s musical concept is unique – A classical ensemble, commissioning pieces, improvising, playing folk music from all over the world, diving into electro acoustic music, electronica and medieval music as well as composing themselves. A stylistic span from the 14th century to newly written works, from Orthodox Georgian chorals to minimalistic techno.

Alpha’s widespread concerts in Europe and The United States have often been broadcast by the Danish Radio and EBU. In February 2006 Alpha won 2nd prize in the Danish National Radio’s Chamber Music Competition, and received the jury’s special prize for best contemporary piece. Shortly hereafter Alpha released their Grammy nominated CD from Dacapo Records.

In 2008 Alpha were finalists in the Concert Artist Guild Competition, New York and in 2009 finalists in Terem Crossover competition, Skt. Petersburg.

Alpha was nominated for the Nordic Council Music Prize 2009.
In 2010 "Alpha World" was released, and the CD was Grammy nominated and the Danish Radio listed it among the 5 best releases of 2010.
