The Curtis Institute of Music announces the launch of Curtis Studio, a label dedicated to the discovery of new and traditional works performed by inspiring artists of our time. Releases will be available on all major streaming platforms and several releases will feature music videos. Distributed by Platoon, Curtis Studio will feature performances of alumni, faculty, and students, ensuring that the Curtis Institute of Music leads the digital helm towards classical music’s dynamic future.

Curtis Studio kicks off with the Curtis Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Finnish Maestro Osmo Vänskä, performing Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade (releasing December 6, 2022). The performance was recorded as part of Curtis’s imaginative new performance installation–Immersive Scheherazade, which invited audiences to sit alongside live musicians performing the work while surrounded by 30-feet high projections of the orchestra. “Scheherazade demands musical virtuosity and highlights the magnificent artistry of the Curtis Symphony Orchestra. These musicians represent a very bright future for classical music. We are thrilled to share their performances through Curtis Studio,” says Vince Ford, executive producer of Curtis Studio.
