EM RECORDS

EM Records is the recording arm of the English Music Festival and, as such, fulfils the EMF’s aims of celebrating and preserving overlooked works by British composers throughout the centuries, with a strong focus on the early twentieth century: the Golden Renaissance of English music. EM Records resolves to bring this glorious music to a world-wide audience by committing to recorded format some of the treasures that the EMF unearths, giving listeners the chance to experience the fullest possible range of the Festival's work. In keeping with the unique spirit of the Festival, each disc released by EM Records contains at least one World Première recording.

 

The label’s mission is to ensure that no English works worthy of hearing are ever again left unavailable to listeners. In the four years since its foundation, it has received international critical acclaim for the world-class quality of its artists and the polish of its production values. It represents a ground-breaking enterprise, presenting repertoire that, though previously unrecorded, is vital, vivid and powerful; and, through its commitment to this endeavour, complements the pioneering work of a leading and internationally-acclaimed Festival.

 

EM Records is proud to be associated with this new recording of Percy Sherwood’s Double Concerto and Frederick Cowen’s Fifth Symphony.
