Founded in 1980, Hyperion is an independent British classical label devoted to presenting high-quality recordings of music of all styles and from all periods from the twelfth century to the twenty-first. We have been described as 'Britain's brightest record label'. In January 1996 we were presented with the Best Label Award by MIDEM's Cannes Classiques Awards. The jury was made up of the editors of most of the leading classical CD magazines in the world—Classic CD (England), Soundscapes (Australia), Répertoire (France), FonoForum (Germany), Luister (Holland), Musica (Italy), Scherzo (Spain), and In Tune (USA & Japan).
We named our label after an altogether splendid figure from Greek mythology. Hyperion was one of the Titans, and the father of the sun and the moon—and also of the Muses, so we feel we are fulfilling his modern role by giving the art of music to the world.
The repertoire available on Hyperion ranges over the entire spectrum of music—sacred and secular, choral and solo vocal, orchestral, chamber and instrumental—and much of it is unique to Hyperion. The catalogue currently comprises nearly 2500 CDs and approximately 30 new titles are issued each year. We have won many awards.
Our CDs are easily available throughout the world in those countries served by our distributors; you may also order direct from Hyperion with our secure on-line shopping system. Or you may telephone us if you like on +44 20 8318 1234. We accept Mastercard and Visa, but not Maestro or American Express.
