Label in the Spotlight: Alpha Classics

From the Renaissance to the music of the twenty-first century, with new or established talents, Alpha Classics is committed to ambitious projects of the highest artistic standard that often stray far from the beaten track

Based in Paris, it is the principal label of the Franco-Belgian group Outhere Music. Building on its history of more than fifteen years and its reputation founded on early music, Alpha acquired new momentum in 2015 by opening its catalogue to all repertories and welcoming important new artists from exceptionally diverse horizons, the discovery and accompaniment of whom are a key priority for the label.

In order to create a stronger and more prominent label on the international scene, Alpha now brings together all the artists who previously recorded under its name along with those who recorded for Zig-Zag Territoires. This merger will make for greater coherence among the 600 recordings in the existing catalogues (especially in the field of early music, the strong point of both labels) and the new releases.

More than ever, Alpha aims to establish long-term relationships with artists, to release projects that have come to artistic maturity, and to give the fullest attention to recording, editorial content, manufacturing, and communication.

To hear the Alpha sampler, access NML, go to the Playlists section, and select the Label in the Spotlight folder under the Themed Playlists tab. You can also access it via the rotating banners. If you are on your institution's premises, you may also be able to access it if you CLICK HERE.
