In its current issue, the Billboard Magazine had a closer look at „How Modern Recordings Is Redefining Classical Music“ – speaking to Fred Casimir (EVP Global Repertoire & Marketing BMG) and Christian Kellersmann (Label Head here at Modern Recordings) about the background of the label, the artists, chart success and most importantly about what’s next.
Coming up in March is Pat Metheny’s album »Road To The Sun«. In this record, Metheny redefined „classical guitar literature and brought it to the next level“, says Fred Casimir in an interview with Billboard.
With »Road To The Sun« being a „jazz-classical crossover“, it fits the label’s approach of being ‚genre-open’: „It’s more about the quality and the vision of the artist.“, says Kellersmann. Looking at the success of past releases, the Billboard feature closes by naming a few acts, that we will announce soon.
Thanks to Billboard for appreciating our work and the artists’ releases. Stay tuned for exciting new records and (if possible) live projects in 2021.
