Channel Classics celebrates their 30th Anniversary!

During these thirty years, Jared Sacks – founder, producer and engineer – has worked with Rachel Podger, Iván Fischer and his Budapest Festival Orchestra, Ning Feng, Paolo Giacometti, Amsterdam Sinfonietta, Netherlands Bach Society, Rick Stotijn, Pieter Wispelwey, Rosanne Philippens, and many others. Most recently we welcomed pianist Anna Fedorova to the Channel Family of Artists. Resulting in a total of 436 recordings to date, and counting.

“Our label Channel Classics is not only a recording company but also promotion/marketing company’, says Jared Sacks – founder, producer and engineer. ‘I am grateful to have a fantastic team here at Channel Classics to promote our artists. Marian, Floor, Ad, Lydi and Jonas have been working together for many years to bring my recordings into the world. Their artwork, campaigns, ideas, commitment and their personal approach to artists, managements, distributors, designers, and all involved – is what makes it possible to share my recordings with you, and to put a spotlight on the artists.”
– Jared Sacks Founder, producer, engineer Channel Classics Records

“For 30 years, Channel Classics has been making wonderful recordings: from projects of a rare intimacy courtesy of Florilegium or Rachel Podger to the magnificent edifices that are Mahler’s symphonies, authoritatively conducted by Iván Fischer. Many have caught our imagination, and a fair few have received our monthly Editor’s Choice accolade. Here’s a selection of some of our favourites.”
– James Jolly Editor-in-Chief, Gramophone Magazine
