About

A glance at Decca’s extensive roster of artists since the company’s formation in February 1929 throws up household names in every decade – Ansermet, Ashkenazy, Bartoli, Brendel, Britten, Chailly, Ferrier, Flagstad, Fleming, Jansen, Karajan, Nilsson, Pavarotti, Solti, Sutherland, Tebaldi, Uchida... the list goes on and on. In fact, if you name a major classical artist of the last 90 years, there is a good chance they will have recorded for Decca and the labels that make up Decca as we know it today.
