About

When the ORFEO label was established in Munich 40 years ago,surely no one on the music scene back then would have predicted that the record company would develop into a firmly established player in the classical music market. One of the label’s main priorities in the early years was vocal music, with opera rarities top of the list and, since the mid-1980s, the re-use of historic tape recordings. Big names featured on the label’s own productions, while ORFEO also developed into a talent factory by discovering and nurturing young artists.

This ORFEO 40th Anniversary 2-CD sampler well reflects these two aspects of the label by combining highlight tracks of historical recordings with today’s global stars.
