MRC Classical is a small, independent record label dedicated to making fine recordings of chamber music. We specialise in rare and neglected works for woodwind and are privileged to work with some of the finest classical musicians in the UK today.

First and foremost we are an artist-led label. We support a growing network of professional musicians who, despite possessing well-established careers, are finding it increasingly difficult to get their work to disc. Recording projects are nominated by the artists themselves, and our aim is to fund two innovative releases each year.

We always record on location in real, rather than studio spaces using high-resolution digital formats. We aim for a natural and detailed sound using carefully chosen equipment, minimal microphone placement and a minimalist recording path. Though we have access to state-of-the-art editing and signal processing facilities, our preferred approach is to render actual musical performances rather than a patchwork of edits. Our aim is to produce recordings with an immediate and ‘life-like’ quality, with a vibrancy suited to the mood of the works themselves.
