After 30 years, and more than 70 international releases with companies like Philips/Polygram, RCA/BMG, and EMI, the Danish classical artists, recorder player Michala Petri and guitarist/lute player Lars Hannibal decided in late 2006 to launch their own recording label, OUR Recordings!
As the name suggests, their releases will be recordings where either Michala Petri or Lars Hannibal or both are involved. The idea is to have the full artistic and creative freedom and responsibility to record what they feel is necessary and consistent with their desire to explore new challenges. The label releases on average, three new albums every year.
To date, OUR Recordings has released 30 critically acclaimed recordings, and has earned international recognition, including the ECHO KLASSIK Award (Germany), four Grammy Nominations (US) a Gramophone Award nomination (UK), Diapason d´Or de l´année (France) ICMA 2016 Award (International Classic Music Award) and Danish Music Award 2016 for Best Danish Release, 3 Danish Music Award nominations and 2 Faroese Music Awards (FMA) 2016.
Several ambitious cycles have already captivated collectors and critics alike, including the "East Meets West" series and Michala Petri's ongoing campaign to expand her instrument's modern concerto literature with Recorder Concertos from different countries.
OUR Recordings enjoys global distribution with NAXOS www.naxos.com.
