Label in the Spotlight: ATMA Classique

This sophisticated and stylish French-Canadian label has recordings ranging from core masterpieces such as Liszt’s B minor Sonata to intriguing, less familiar repertoire such as the choral music by the Estonian composer Veljo Tormis, sung by the vibrant Canadian ensemble Musica Intima.

Founded in 1994 by Johanne Goyette, ATMA has established a sterling reputation around the world for recordings with superb sound quality, featuring distinctive programs performed by some of the world’s finest musicians.

Distributed in 25 countries and present on all digital platforms, the ATMA catalog now comprises 450 titles in genres ranging from medieval to contemporary music, and including tango, traditional, and baroque music. ATMA recordings are notable for their high standards, and original, creative programs, which have garnered praise and numerous awards and prizes over the years.

To hear the ATMA Classique sampler, access NML as usual, go to the Playlists section, and select the Label in the Spotlight folder under the Themed Playlists tab. You can also access it via the rotating banners. If you are on your institution's premises, you may also be able to access it if you CLICK HERE.
