Marco-Polo

When the label was launched in 1982 it was the first label devoted to world premiere recordings mostly of repertoire from the second half of the 19th and the early part of the 20th century.

Overview

Marco Polo is a rarity label which records and releases only repertoire that has not been recorded previously or is not currently available in decent recordings. The focus of Marco Polo has shifted - when the label was started back in 1982 Marco Polo focused on Romantic, Late Romantic and Post-Romantic composers, the best-known works of relatively unknown composers, and unknown works of well-known composers.

The original concept of the Marco Polo label was to bring to listeners unknown compositions by well-known composers. There was, at the same time, an ambition to bring the East to the West. Since then there have been many changes in public taste and in the availability of recorded music. Composers once little known are now easily available in recordings. Marco Polo, in consequence, has set out on further adventures of discovery and exploration...
