Small Swiss label scores one million streaming hits

Claves is a classical label, founded in 1968. In a statement out today, it announced that it had passed the million mark in free streaming of its back catalogue. Not quite sure how that works commercially, but they thought you’d like to know. Read on here (en francais).

  1. I think that accumulates to like 0.003 cents per million streams

    • I’d love to know where the streaming link is – it seems to be very well hidden!

      • I have recorded for Claves, Henri Collet’s ‘Concerto Flamencos’ which were world premieres. The orchestra was the Royal Orchestra of Seville. Madam Huber, their then, general manager, was excellent to work for and her catalogue a very brave one indeed. There are many obscure CDs in it, they are, in the main, very interesting.
        Collet was French (from Paris). He was, according to Manuel de Falla, one of his finest students. Henri Collet rode ’round on a donkey through Andelusia writing down the folk songs he heard being sung and played by the people later orchestrating them in back Paris. I believe his finest work was the ‘Symphony d’Alambra’, but there is a fine CD of his piano music which is really very good. Claves has served music very well and this needs to be noted.
