ABC Classics

ABC Classics was founded in 1987 as a means of showcasing the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's classical music recordings under its own banner.

Prior to the formation of ABC Classics, the ABC's commitment to classical music recording extends back to the 1940s. The ABC was most prolific in its production of classical recordings during the 1960s and 1970s at which time these recordings were released under licence to a number of different record companies.

ABC Classics produces a range of CDs which feature the music of Australian composers, individual Australian performers, chamber ensembles, orchestras, a selection of broadcast program related CDs, television and feature film soundtracks.
