Alpha is a unique Danish ensemble, founded by Bolette Roed (recorder), Peter Navarro-Alonso (saxophone) and David Hildebrandt (percussion) who all graduated from the soloist class at the Royal Danish Academy of Music, Copenhagen. As early as in 2003, they were the first to explore this instrument combination, attracted by its many possibilities. Alpha was an immediate success and became double prize winner in the Danish Radio’s Chamber Music Competition in 2006 and they have been finalists in many international competitions while all of their CDs have been nominated for P2 Prisen, the Danish Music Awards for Classical music. Alpha was also nominated for the Nordic Council’s Music Prize in 2009. For Dacapo the trio has released the CD’s ’Alpha’ (2006), ’Through the looking glass’ (2013) with new interpretations of known works by Per Nørgård, Poul Ruders, Hans Abrahamsen and Bent Sørensen as well as ’Le quattro stagioni’ (2018), which includes Peter Navarro-Alonso’s version of Vivaldi’s ’The Four Seasons’.
