Thanks to our long-term relations with many radio stations and phonographic archives, we are able to release legendary performances exclusively on ARTS ARCHIVES. Another focus is drawn on great recordings which have not been available on CD for many years. On ARTS ARCHIVES,  we release recordings (live or studio) that are mostly less than 50 years old, that have the highest technical quality and which are exclusively available by us. Moreover all recordings released on ARTS ARCHIVES are carefully re-mastered with the 24bit 96kHz technique, mostly from the original tapes.
