"Alpha Records that are as beautiful to look at as to listen to" - that’s how the creation of Alpha was greeted by the press in 1999. As well as exploring previously-unknown repertoire of composers such as Bellerofonte Castaldi, Domenico Belli, Stefano Landi, Pierre Guédron and Philipp Heinrich Erlebach, Alpha foregrounds the connections between literature, poetry, theatre and painting and showcases new performing talent. Only a few years after its inception Alpha was named “Classical Label of the year 2005” by the international press.
