Philippe Herreweghe's own label.
Philippe Herreweghe will assume the artistic direction of this catalogue which will hold exclusive rights for his recordings with Collegium Vocale Gent and l’Orchestre des Champs-Elysées. By creating this collection, he wishes to freely materialise the fruit of a long career of musical research and experiences.
At a rate of 4 to 5 productions a year as from 2011, the catalogue will comprise productions devoted to the main symphonic and choral repertoire, polyphony and of course to the works of J S Bach that Philippe Herreweghe wants to revisit to produce ever more accomplished versions.

Gardiner follows his recording of the complete symphonies with an account of the Deutsches Requiem that scores highly on textual clarity, whilst Herreweghe and Collegium Vocale Gent offer luminous performances of the Alto Rhapsody (with Ann Hallenberg as soloist) and Schicksalsied.
The Belgian Bach scholar and conductor and Collegium Vocale Gent return to works which they first recorded back in 1981, bringing crystal-clear textures, impeccable intonation and excellent ensemble to the six motets.
