harmonia mundi was born in 1958: sixty years and several thousand recordings later, the company continues to affirm its identity and its singularity with insolent vitality! Anniversaries also offer an opportunity to reflect on the distance travelled.
This first volume invites you to relive the highlights of the label’s first thirty years and pays tribute to the artists who built harmonia mundi on the heights of Saint-Michel-de-Provence, in a passionate quest for excellence that caused a genuine revolution in the world of early music.
