Bryn Terfel

Bryn Terfel has signed a new, exclusive, long-term recording agreement with Deutsche Grammophon. As part of the deal the award-winning Welsh bass-baritone has affirmed his commitment to supporting the next generation of classical musicians by creating a unique joint venture label with Berlin-based Deutsche Grammophon. The company’s press release says: « Utilising Terfel’s unique artistic network, experience and insight, newly-formed Snowdonia Records will seek to identify, develop and record new talent in the classical arena – both local Welsh and British talent, as well as artists from the international stage. Housed within Deutsche Grammophon’s international label stable, and supported by Vice President for A&R, Ute Fesquet, the new imprint will work across vocal, instrumental and choral music, with the first projects set to be announced in 2014. »

The announcement comes ahead of Terfel’s latest album release on Deutsche Grammophon – “’Homeward Bound’, featuring the legendary Mormon Tabernacle Choir.  This is the most ambitious studio album ever made in the label’s 115-year history, involving 360 choir members, 150 orchestral musicians, 2 guest singers, a conductor and a soloist.
