'The leading record company in classical music in Scandinavia'.
Most record labels begin with a need to fill a niche. When Robert von Bahr founded BIS in 1973, he seems to have found any number of musical niches to fill. The Swedish label explores the unjustly neglected domains of music, travelling all over the world to make recordings, from concert halls in Singapore or São Paulo, to a church in the English countryside, a student chapel in Kobe or to Lahti's superb Sibelius Hall. BIS fosters works by women composers, is a highly respected ‘early music’ label (recording with, among others, Emma Kirkby, Dan Laurin, Bach Collegium Japan and London Baroque) as well as one of the liveliest contemporary music labels (with composers like Kalevi Aho, Christopher Rouse, Sally Beamish and James MacMillan).
