Danacord was founded in 1979 by Denmark’s “man about CDs,” Jesper Buhl. The label was inspired by Buhl’s frustration with the record companies and his passion for rare, unrecorded works of music which are the primary focus of this Copenhagen-based company. Danacord has championed the music of several Danish composers, including Rued Langaard and Carl Nielsen, in addition to many other Scandinavian composers. As well, the label has devoted entire series of recordings to world-class Danish artists such as tenor Aksel Schiotz, cellist Erling Bløndal Bengtsson, violinist Kai Laursen. The Danacord catalogue currently consists of more than 180 releases and includes a wide range of classical from all genres. Aside from the Danish music and Danish artists, the catalogue also represents rarities and famous international performers.
