The Academy of Ancient Music has launched its own record label, AAM Records. Previously largely affiliated with Decca and Harmonia Mundi with over 300 discs to its name, the AAM will now control all its future recordings, continuing a commitment to historically-informed Baroque and Classical performance. The AAM will also produce in-house podcasts, liner notes and films, designed to enhance the listener’s understanding of the music. The period instrument ensemble plans to expand its global audience, too, developing its work in the Far East, America and Australia.
Founded in 1973 by Christopher Hogwood, the AAM is an associate ensemble at London’s Barbican Centre and is also orchestra-in-residence at the University of Cambridge.
