On 2 April 1989 the label TACET was founded in Stuttgart.
We have come up with plenty of ideas to celebrate this big jubilee as is fitting.
After starting off our Blu-ray Discs, which show great promise of success, many more releases will follow in TACET Real Surround Sound. We are also continuing vinyl at full speed after last year's spectacular "Play Backwards" LPs. We are expecting 3 new CD recordings by Evgeni Koroliov alone (Schubert, Stravinsky, Beethoven). Throughout the year, the Auryn Quartet together with Nobuko Imai will delve into a complete recording of the string quintets of Mozart. Just a few days ago, Christoph Ullrich started the utterly crazy complete recording of the 555 piano sonatas of Domenico Scarlatti. The Nederlands Philharmonisch Orkest is playing the symphonies of Gounod. And Wojchiech Rajski is giving us the most beautiful birthday present this summer with his Polish Chamber Philharmonic: he will be completing the first Beethoven symphony cycle in TACET Real Surround Sound. Never before has a recording been in such demand by customers, so persistently over the course of years, as this Ninth. And that is certainly not all...
A very important date for you and us: the High End Show in Munich from 15 to 18 May. We have booked a larger-than-usual stand there in order to present our recordings in the best possible quality. This time it will be in a different way than usual - in the form of "concerts" of our sound carriers. We are offering the music in a sound quality that many people do not know at all. Everyone should find out just what overwhelming experiences are made possible by our recordings. Some will even discover details from the scores that remained hidden at concerts. - In order to do justice to the music, we shall be playing according to a fixed programme. Thomas Gluck from Sweden will moderate; I shall be helping him, friends and important artists will visit us, but above all the music will be running - longer passages of it than usual. Entire movements, whole works. As I said before, a concert programme.
We hope you'll come by and visit us! We would also be delighted if you would refer to these special plans in your previews on the Fair in your magazine. Of course, we shall be at your disposal for any questions you may have.
During the course of the year, more releases of this kind will be appearing at irregular intervals in order of our preferences.
