Label in the Spotlight: Hänssler Classic / Profil
Hänssler Classic is an award-winning German classical and contemporary music label whose artists include violinist Christian Tetzlaff. PROFIL – Edition Gunter Hänssler was founded by Gunter Hänssler, the son of Hänssler Classic's founder. In 2015 the two labels came together under Profil Medien GmbH.
"Only a classical label with a clear image has a real chance of success in today’s classical market!" he says. "Today’s discerning lovers of classical music want originality and independence." To achieve this, he has an innovative, dynamic selection of artists recording high-quality repertoire, thereby ensuring their commitment to the label’s program.
Profil Medien GmbH is also the sponsor of Glissando episode 1.4 with special guest Boris Giltburg.
