Unicorn Records now Unicorn - Kanchana Records was established in 1968 to make available interesting and often under recorded music and artists in recordings of the highest standards.

Mahler's Third Symphony conducted by Jascha Horenstein, at that time largely ignored by the large record companies, immediately established the company's reputation for quality and won a prestigious Grand Prix du Disque Academie Charles Cros. Pioneer recordings followed of the Symphonies of Nielsen and music by composers as diverse as Samuel Barber, Robert Simpson, Charles Ives and Bernard Herrmann many of which will be made available to down-load. Over the years a very wide and eclectic catalogue has been assembled ranging from the 18th century English school of Samuel Wesley and Cipriani Potter to Oliver Knussen and Peter Maxwell Davies, and Olivier Messiaen, taking in along the way Edvard Grieg, Ralph Vaughan Williams and the music of Frederick Delius conducted by his amanuensis, Eric Fenby

Now, as at the beginning of its life, Unicorn-Kanchana's aim remains the production of interesting music performed by outstanding musicians in high quality recordings
