Carpe Diem

Carpe Diem is a creative German record label for Early Music, Improvised Music and stylistic border walks. Carpe Diem was founded in 2008 by the balance engineers Jonas Niederstadt and Johannes Wallbrecher. With every recording the label stands for exceptional artistic accomplishment, the highest audiophile quality of record and inherently consistent and individualistic conception of music and sound while valuing contemporary graphic design of the record covers. It is the aim of Carpe Diem to present music in new, unheard of and unique context, and to show that vibrant music is always contemporary, always meaningful. In this sense you will find among the artists at Carpe Diem renowned stars at once with young talents yet to be discovered.
