What happened to the GUILD CD label, Switzerland?

Post by Lance » Thu Apr 05, 2018 12:53 pm

I understand that a fine label, especially in unearthing historical recordings, has gone bankrupt. They had quite an imposing catalogue and I have many of their recordings. But I am trying to confirm if, IN FACT, they are out of business. If so, a great pity. Can anybody shed light on this subject?

They are not out of business at all. They are still issuing new recordings and are distributed by Naxos in North America.

That's what I thought. I went to their website and this so-called "mom and pop" operations seems to be thriving. And I hope they continue to thrive!
