“Since its inception over 50 years ago, Teldec's Das Alte Werk label has been home to many outstanding and influential recordings that helped establish historically informed performance practice as an important new way to hear masterpieces of the Baroque and more, spearheaded by the label's groundbreaking Bach cantata recordings by Nikolaus Harnoncourt and Gustav Leonhardt.

BIS's Boss Robert von Bahr:
This is a very, very special release. The release date coincides with the passing of exactly one year since the terrible disaster in Japan. It was Masaaki Suzuki's idea to release this compilation in order to give solace to the victims of this disaster - the music has been especially chosen for this purpose, including some newly recorded material - and also to contribute to their physical well-being: all the royalties are going to the Tohoku Relief Foundation and BIS are matching that, penny for penny.
Harmonia extends congratulations to all of the 2011 Grammy winners!

Tune Thy Musicke to thy Hart
Tudor and Jocobean Music for Private Devotion
On Tune thy Musick to thy Hart the young British stars of song Stile Antico are joined by the award-winning viol consort Fretwork to explore the wealth of Tudor and Jacobean sacred music written not for church performance, but for the court and for the home.

“BIS's Boss Robert von Bahr:
It is hard to sit and write texts about certain SACD:s without succumbing to ridiculous boasting, and this is one case in point. The very fact that we have asked Ronald Brautigan to record Complete Mozart (10 CD:s), Complete Haydn (16) and the Mozart Concerti (ongoing),
