The Edition Peters Group has added a recording arm to its publishing and artist management companies. The Edition Peters Sounds label plans to concentrate on recording performances by the artists on its agency roster, as well as releasing works from its artists and others drawn from the Group’s extensive and famous publishing catalogue.
The first release, featuring pianist Daniel Grimwood performing Fauré’s Nocturnes, is now available for preorder from iTunes, and will become available from select CD shops and digital platforms on December 10, 2014. Future releases will feature tenor Paul Phoenix and vocal ensemble Apollo5 sharing an album of vocal arrangements, violinist Simon Fischer and more.
Nicholas Riddle, CEO of the Edition Peters Group said: The creation of a recording label within the Edition Peters Group is an exciting, bold and positive development. It is not unusual these days for organisations to operate their 'own label', and we do so in order to highlight our artists and publishing catalogue. Run from our thriving Artist Management company, EPAM, we can all look forward to listening to wonderful performances.
Edition Peters Sounds is primarily a digital label, but with physical CDs available at its artist’s concerts, from the label’s website and from selected music shops.
