Welcome to the website of 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 will contain 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. 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. Music lovers are invited to become directly involved in the continuing success of this enterprising label by becoming Foundation subscribers or by subscribing to individual releases.
We very much hope you enjoy browsing our website and discovering more about our exciting and innovative projects.
