Whichever definition you choose, Capriccio will satisfy you with the sheer quality of its recordings, the astonishing artistry of its performers and the huge choice of excellent music available on CD, hybrid SACD and DVD.

It’s no surprise that Capriccio has named its hybrid SACD Sampler ‘The Universe of Sound’. It’s truly a classic spectacular featuring Concerto Köln, Vladimir Spivakov, Ludwig Güttler, Wienner Sängerknaben, the Petersen Quartet, Reinhold Friedrich, Sandor Vegh and James Conlon.

But these are only some of the leading artists on Capriccio. How about L’Arte del Mondo, Cappella Coloniensis, Christoph Eschenbach, Matthias Goerne, Erich Kleiber, Birgit Nilsson, René Pape, Orchestre de Paris, Christine Schäfer, Barbara Schlick, Vladimir Spivakov, Teresa Stich-Randall, Rolando Villazon, Bruno Weil, Tabea Zimmermann? The roster is very impressive!

But most exciting of all, several titles, never previously released are now available.

Capriccio is distributed worldwide by Naxos.
