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.
