GENUIN is a German classical music record label based in Leipzig, founded in 1998 by two sound engineers, Holger Busse and Alfredo Lasheras Hakobian. Their recordings are known to be genuine, natural and authentic.


GENUIN stands for high quality classical music productions, good recording technology without compromise and a trusting, almost familiar atmosphere between artists and producers. GENUIN is equipped with the most advanced digital and remote multitrack technology for stereo and surround recordings. This high-quality equipment plays an important role in recordings by GENUIN. Nevertheless, only precise placement of the microphones, careful mixing of the music, the many years of experience of the sound engineers and how they work with recording artists guarantee classical music recordings of the highest quality.

There are two things that make GENUIN stand out in the crowd: First of all, the sound quality and recording technology. GENUIN is a typical audiophile label. Recordings take place in carefully selected concert halls and churches with high quality recording technology that captures the music with all its vitality and nuances. Everything is at the service of the performers and their music. Secondly, the reason why their recording artists keep coming back is the creative and positive atmosphere that is created by the sound engineers during the production. They repeatedly succeed in putting the performers in a mood in which they can concentrate completely on their instrument and the music.

...excellent recording technology without compromise.
