Orfeo 40th Anniversary Edition - 40 Ultimate Recordings

When the ORFEO label was established  in  Munich  forty  years  ago,  surely  no  one  with  the  music  scene  back  then would  have  predicted  that  the  record company  would  develop  into  a  firmly established  player  on  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 artist.

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