CD: Through the Looking Glass – Alpha

Bolette Roed, recorder; Peter Navarro-Alonson, saxophone; David Hildebrandt, percussion

Works by: Hans Abrahamsen, Per Nørgård, Poul Ruders, Bent Sørensen

Released on Dacapo Records, 2013

 

Alpha have reimagined and reinterpreted works by four composers. Instead of the original scorings, the pieces are played with only the recorder, saxophone and percussion. By making the instrumentation much sparser, Alpha reveals colours and structures in the music.
