About

Universal Music Classics (UMC) is home to Decca Gold, the new US classical music label based in NYC. It will serve as the permanent American home for all new classical artists, continuing the rich tradition of a historic legacy dating back to 1956 with artists such as Andrés Segovia, Leonard Bernstein, Claudio Arrau, and Dave Brubeck. The revitalized imprint has recently forged new partnerships with the New York Philharmonic and The Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, as well as new artist signings with the acclaimed Emerson String Quartet and rising star soprano Nadine Sierra, with more to be announced. Under UMC, Decca Gold will sit alongside its esteemed European imprints Deutsche Grammophon, Decca, Mercury KX and ECM. The present roster includes Andrea Bocelli, Lang Lang, Renée Fleming, André Rieu, Max Richter, Cecilia Bartoli, Daniil Trifonov, Anna Netrebko, Tori Amos, and Ólafur Arnalds.
