ARTS was created in 1993. Since then we have released more than 6.200 tracks on over 400 titles of classical music from five centuries (from medieval to music of our time), the greatest artists of the last decades as well as very promising young artists who have not yet reached the zenith of their careers. The musical styles reach from Sacred to Opera, Chamber Music to Symphonic, Lied to Operetta. The greatest works of composers such as Mozart, Schubert and Wagner as well as rarities from Rossini, Verdi, Händel are part of our catalogue.

ARTS' exclusive recordings distinguish themselves not only by the presence of acclaimed artists and young talents, but also by the best digital technique, and the outstanding artwork of the booklets with texts in four or five languages.

Every year, 25 to 30 new titles are being added on CD, Hybrid SACD, DVD-Video or DVD-Audio and the worldwide press regularly acclaims these releases.

With this powerful artistic background, we managed to not only establish a worldwide distribution network, but also a global renown closely related to the brand, which is the highest obtainable value.

The Licensing Library

In the beginning of 2006 we have compiled our music into a Licensing Library. We have tried to make it as comfortable as possible to search through our repertoire and listen to the tracks, so that we can perfectly meet your requirements, whether your project be a commercial advertisement, a film or a CD selection.

We have cut the tracks to a reasonable length, listing them in various ways. They are searchable not only by composer, instruments, periods, styles or keywords but also according to mood and other descriptive adjectives.

In addition, it is affordable! You can select as many tracks as you wish and we will send you a non-binding offer for every track and project.

Since our first launch we have already had great feedback from many partners such as Walt Disney Pictures, Nokia, the UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP, "Alica Produce" (Spain), "Les Films D'ICI" (France) and many others. Give it a try! We are certain that you too will be very satisfied with our service.
