A state-of-the-art classical music series
ARTS was established in 1993. Since then we have released more than 6,500 tracks on over 400 titles of classical music from five centuries (from medieval to music of our time), the greatest artists of the last decades as well as very promising young artists who have not yet reached the zenith of their careers. The musical styles reach from Sacred to Opera, Chamber Music to Symphonic, Lied to Operetta. The greatest works of composers such as Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert and Wagner as well as rarities from Rossini, Verdi, and Händel are part of our catalogue.
ARTS’ exclusive recordings distinguish themselves not only by the presence of selected contents, acclaimed artists and young talents, but also by the best digital technique, and the outstanding artwork of the booklets with texts in four or five languages.
Every year, 25 to 30 new titles are being added on CD, Hybrid SACD, DVD-Video or DVD-Audio, which are also regularly acclaimed by the national and international press.
With this powerful artistic background, we managed to not only establish a worldwide distribution network, but also a global renown closely related to the brand, which is the highest obtainable value.

The ARTS product lines:
ARTS offers the following very successful product lines:
All of our titles are elaborately designed and have a booklet in four languages.
No labels in the same price category can meet ARTS’ quality in the artwork. Carefully produced booklets and a studied design have won ARTS worldwide recognition: The Museum Of Modern Art in New York (the famous MoMA) chose an ARTS product as first CD to be presented in the permanent collection (ARTS 47135-2 - Contempoartensemble play music by Berio, Xenakis, Sciarrino, with the cover artwork especially created by the famous American artist Sol LeWitt). A limited edition in a metal square can is available of selected ARTS references with special cover designed by famous artists (Sol LeWitt, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Jean Michel Folon, Gerhard Richter, Daniel Buren, Dani Karavan) and with an original serigraph authorised by the artist.
Our rich catalogue enables us to produce any kind of compilation, from soft and sweet sounds for a “Candlelight Dinner “ to deeply moving choirs for a “Family-Christmas“. There are no borders to creativity.
ARTS belongs to the very few worldwide active classical labels, who continuously strengthens its market position with the regular release of yearly several dozens new and exciting recordings as well as treasures from radio archives.
