Naxos of America is now the U. S. distributor of Canadian classical music label ATMA Classique.
ATMA Classique (atmaclassique.com)–which, over the last dozen years, has built a catalogue of more than 250 releases–is a unique label with a truly international focus in terms of repertoire and artists. As founder and producer Johanne Goyette explains, “it’s a Canadian label that is Montreal based, but I don’t want it to be solely about Montreal. We are part of the global village. There are many artists on ATMA who tour internationally and bring musicians from other countries on to our recordings.” As a result, many of the label’s projects are perfect examples of artistic cross-pollination between artists from different countries and cultures.
