Alpha

ensemble
Alpha consists of three young musicians: Bolette Roed (recorder), Peter Navarro-Alonso (saxophone) and David Hildebrandt (percussion). All three made their debuts from the soloist class of the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen in 2003-04. Alpha’s concert activities are wide-ranging and are reflected in the broad repertoire of the ensemble. They give many concerts at festivals, churches, chamber music societies, concert halls and jazz clubs in Denmark and abroad. Their concerts have also been broadcast on innumerable occasions. The repertoire is based on works written specifically for the ensemble, free improvisations, minimalist-inspired compositions with electronics, medieval music, folk music from Central Asia and the Middle East etc. The ensemble often collaborates closely with the composers in explorations of the sound-potential of their unique combination of instruments.
