The Meloclassic label was founded by Lynn Ludwig in 2013 and it’s an independent classical label devoted to presenting previously unissued historical recordings of high-quality live radio performances and broadcasts. We include whenever possible the original radio announcements and applause. The recordings should be considered as historical documents.
Estates of great performers that have cooperated with Meloclassic on projects presenting new releases from unissued radio archival recordings include those of the pianists Jacqueline Eymar, Rudolf Firkušný, Monique de la Bruchollerie, Alexander Uninsky, Walter Gieseking, Jacob Gimpel, Samson François, Witold Małcużyński, Marian Filar, and Poldi Mildner; the violinists Bronisław Gimpel, Igor Bezrodny, Henryk Szeryng, Erich Röhn, and Paul Makanowitzky.
We use a variety of post-production technologies to achieve optimal sound quality whilst at all times remaining faithful to the principles of the authentic tonal fidelity of these historical performances. The historical publications at meloclassic are based, without exception, on the original tapes or original 78rpm metal parts from broadcasting archives. Thus, a sound of superior quality results. Publications based on private recordings from broadcasts cannot be compared with these.
Our catalogue comprises around 100 titles and our CDs are manufacturing pressed CDs according to the Red Book Standard (Compact Disc Digital Audio) and not CD-R discs.
Our discs are currently available via our website. They can be ordered via the meloclassic webshop, which ships to all countries worldwide.
Our discs are also available in close cooperation with international distribution partners.
