At the start of the 21st century, SACD has established itself as the preferred new medium, offering both SACD stereo and multichannel in high resolution as well as the traditional CD. 

This is why we think that it offers the perfect solution for our audiophile recordings.

In September 2005 we offered the first recording on Hybrid SACD: Corelli's Violin Sonatas Opus 5 performed by Stefano Montanari, Ottavio Dantone and members of the Accademia Bizantina (2 SACDs). A release that was awarded with the DIAPASON D'OR, 5 Stars from MUSICA and other highly acclaimed prices and critics. (ARTS 47724-8)

One year later we set another milestone in the ARTS history with the release of our complete Shostakovich Cycle. Gathered on 10 outstanding Hybrid SACDs all Symphonies are presented by the Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi, conducted by Oleg Caetani. (ARTS 47850-8)

Further to this we have received rave reviews for all releases from the ensemble I Barocchisti, conducted by Diego Fasolis such as the Bach Suites 1-4 (ARTS 47649-8), the Christmas Oratory (ARTS 47714-8) or the Brandenburg Concertos (ARTS 47715-8 and 47716-8).

A great success and an awsome happening!

We hope you'll have lots of fun with our music on SACD!
