Sixty-five years old and as young as ever!
From 1958 to 2023: still livelier than ever, ‘La Belle Arlésienne’ has produced exclusive albums with around fifty of the most prestigious international artists in the classical music world. You need only look at the music press or television, consult concert programmes, browse YouTube, Instagram, Apple Classical, Spotify and so on.
But harmonia mundi is also very attentive to the young talents of today, which it nurtures with special fervour. During the 1990s and 2000s, the ‘Nouveaux Musiciens’ series enabled the emergence of Isabelle Faust, Emmanuelle Bertrand, Alexander Melnikov, Jean-Guihen Queyras, Frank Braley and many others. And since 2017, the harmonia nova series has hosted fifteen young talents (singers, instrumentalists or ensembles) from all over the world – an exceptionally promising musical hothouse that can already pride itself on two winners at the Victoires de la Musique Classique (Bruno Philippe, Marie Perbost).
