On 20 October, Warner Classics and EuroArts Music International signed a distribution contract at the Warner offices in Hamburg. Starting this fall, DVD and Blu-ray releases on the EuroArts label will be distributed by Warner Classics in the US and major parts of Europe (UK, France and Benelux from 2016).
EuroArts Music is the first classical label to partner with Warner Classics Label Services, an extended global distribution and marketing infrastructure which marries Warner Classics’ global expertise with Warner Music Group’s established international third-party distribution company, Alternative Distribution Alliance (ADA) Worldwide.
The first releases – to be available from Mid-November – are a documentary on soprano Measha Brueggergosman, the 2015 Concert in the Waldbühne, a groundbreaking new recording of Brahms' Symphony no. 2, over 12 hours of rehearsal and performance footage on one Blu-ray disc, a ballet interpretation of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony and a concert with and award-winning documentary on pianist Menahem Pressler.
We are as proud as could be: Our production The Life I Love. The Pianist Menahem Pressler by Grete Liffers just won the Grand Prix at the renowned Golden Prague Festival 2015. The jury states that the film is...
"an irresistible musical portrait of a truly irresistible man. This colourful painting of Pressler’s extraordinary life embraces both his artistic achievements and personal moral drama. It's a must see film for all generations with of one of the most inspired and inspiring musicians of the world."
And there's more still: Virtuosity – the documentary about the 2013 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition by Christopher Wilkinson – was awarded the Czech Crystal Award for the best documentary. It is a joy to be distributing this amazing film by 88 Films Production, The Cliburn & Christopher Wilkinson!
Both films are available on DVD and Blu-ray as well as for TV distribution.
Bernd Hellthaler, founder and current managing director, is remaining with the company as a shareholder and board member of the parent company, as well as in an advisory capacity, and will continue to fulfil the role of Treasurer for EuroArts Music at the IMZ (International Music Centre) in Vienna.
Bernd Hellthaler can look back over a career spanning over 3 decades. "I am particularly proud of the long and trusting collaboration with the Berlin Philharmonic. But we have also been able to set standards in the fields of dance and jazz, and to do so on all continents. Although my enthusiasm for outstanding music and exciting audio-visual productions has never waned, the time has now come to hand over the responsibilities of the company to the next generation. The new management team will be supported by Jan Bremme , who will continue to head the production department, and Hanno Plate-Andreini , who heads EuroArts' own label. We have an excellent team of experienced employees, whom I trust fully and completely."
