Founded in 2009 by cellist Martin Rummel and cultural promotor Wolfgang Lamprecht, the CD label paladino music is the origin of paladino media. With an average of 15 releases per year, it has developed into a boutique independent label for classical music. Its releases are either composer or performer focused, which led to exciting recitals and debut recordings as well as premiere recordings by composers such as Franz Krommer, David Popper, Johann Joachim Quantz, Thomas Daniel Schlee, Robert Stark and Johann Wenzel Tomaschek. Outstanding performers of all generations, from young artists to internationally renowned celebrities such as Vladimir Ashkenazy guarantee that the artistic quality of each release is unquestionable. Originally focused on chamber music, paladino music now releases an increasing number of concerto and other orchestral repertoire.
Many releases have been awarded or at least been nominated for prizes, and international reviewers have often commented on both the selection of repertoire and the consequently elegant design of the CDs, developed from the paladino media corporate identity. paladino music is curated by Martin Rummel, who is supported by a team of experts in the product design, manufacturing and distribution. The stock is handled by Naxos Global Logistics, and a network of more than 50 international distributors worldwide make sure that all recordings are available through retail, online stores and all major digital distribution services, both streaming and online.
