We have two new labels this month: C Major Digital and RCO Live.

C Major Digital
Among more than 2,100 programmes of music and art, C Major’s DVD catalogue includes performances by Herbert von Karajan, Leonard Bernstein, Anna Netrebko, Plácido Domingo, and Cecilia Bartoli. Since 2006, C Major Entertainment has distributed the unique catalogue of UNITEL, whose new ‘Tutto Verdi’ series with Teatro Regio di Parma, encompassing the complete operas of Verdi, can here be experienced in audio form, too.

RCO Live
RCO Live is the orchestra-owned label of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam. On RCO Live the orchestra releases premium-quality recordings of its live performances, focusing on core symphonic repertoire led by its chief conductor, Mariss Jansons, and eminent guest conductors such as Bernard Haitink, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Iván Fischer, Daniele Gatti, and many more. The special Horizon series brings together contemporary works which have been successfully premiered by the RCO.
