With over 20 million views on YouTube, British guitarist Alexandra Whittingham is described by Classic FM as an artist with an ability to ‘revolutionise her musical world and change the future of the classical genre’.
Having recently graduated from the Royal Academy of Music with first class honours, Delphian has signed Alexandra on an initial three-recording collaboration, to include a programme of all female composers and a recital of South American music.
Alexandra’s carefully-curated debut album - conceived under lockdown - will explore 19th century guitar repertoire on a pan-European voyage which pairs little-known gems from Denmark and Switzerland with the instrument’s celebrated Spanish repertoire. Owning a natural ability to speak to audiences both in the concert hall and online - as demonstrated by her eyewatering viewing figures - this partnership marks the beginning of a bold new chapter in Alexandra’s professional life.
Delphian Records has a proven track record in forging international careers.Alexandra’s signing comes amid a time of exceptional growth of outstanding young artists on the independent label.
“We couldn’t be happier to welcome another exceptional young guitarist on Delphian. Over the course of our 20-year history we’ve successfully identified the brightest performing talent and Alexandra is no exception. Her online following is a testament to her musicality, and we’re looking forward to capturing that musical imagination on record.”
Managing Director, Delphian Records
“I’m so excited to be recording my debut album with Delphian. Having worked so hard at creating content online myself, and been overwhelmed by the levels of engagement, now feels like the perfect time to be entering into this new partnership.
After lots of requests for a studio album this new venture promises to be very exciting!”
