About The Label

The Erato label was founded in Paris in 1953, when there was very little Renaissance and Baroque music to be found in the catalogues of the recently developed long-playing record. This was to be the area in which Erato first made its mark and which subsequently established its fine and enduring reputation. Over the years a rich catalogue has emerged across all repertoire featuring artists such as conductor and pianist Daniel Barenboim, conductor Sir John Elliot Gardiner, early music specialist William Christie and Les Arts Florissants, legendary trumpeter Maurice André, organist Marie-Claire Alain, pianist Hélène Grimaud, mezzo-soprano Susan Graham and harpsichordist Scott Ross whose complete recordings of Domenico Scarlatti’s 555 Harpsichord Sonatas were the first complete edition by a single performer. Many of the early recordings are now being reissued. Recently, Erato was revived by Warner Music, along with EMI Classics and Virgin Classics, becoming a part of Warner Classics.
