Our Meloclassic label is an independent classical label, dedicated to informal education in the arts and devoted to presenting previously unissued historical recordings of high-quality live radio performances and broadcasts. Our CDs should be considered as historical documents.
Each release is carefully considered, with criteria including highly skilled lesser-known performers, famous interpreters performing repertoire which they did not record commercially, or recordings which capture a musician in particularly fine form. Technical slips or the occasional memory lapse are less important than the intrinsic musical value of the performance. Live recordings are presented as complete as possible to provide the listener with the perception of actually attending these historical performances.
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 115 titles and our CDs are manufacturing pressed CDs (replicated discs) according to the Red Book Standard (Compact Disc Digital Audio) and not CD-R (duplicated/burned 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.
