Sony

Sony Classical is the successor to the Columbia and CBS Masterworks labels, assuming its new identity after the purchase of CBS Records by Sony Corporation. The company and its catalogue are over a century old, though their modern history dates from their acquisition in 1938 by the Columbia Broadcasting System. Under the innovative direction of Goddard Lieberson, who headed the label's Artists and Repertoire division, Columbia Records quickly became an industry leader both in the depth and breadth of its catalogue and in technological innovation, from the advent of long-playing records to the dawn of the digital age.
