Bookmark and Share

Analekta announced that the musical works from its catalogue have now been streamed 100 million times on streaming services such as Spotify, Apple Music and Deezer. 

Analekta's president and founder, François Mario Labbé, said "It is rather exceptional for a classical music label to already reach the mark of 100 million streams, only a few years after the deployment of this relatively new technology for listening to music.  This achievement was made possible thanks to the quality of our recordings, the artists we work with and the fantastic reception given to our albums by music lovers all over of the world and also, perhaps, because we have believed in the potential of streaming since the very beginning.  We are proud of Analekta's contribution, here and abroad, to the promotion of Canada's best musicians. I wish to thank our digital distributor, The Orchard, who has been an outstanding partner and a significant contributor to our worldwide success on digital platforms for the past twelve years."

Jason Pascal, vice-president of catalogue development & associate general counsel at The Orchard, said "The Orchard has been a proud partner of Analekta since 2005.  All along, we have trusted each other to do what we do best, and as a result, we continue to experience robust growth together.  It is an honour for all of us at The Orchard to work with Analekta and its excellent artists."

Analekta was one of the pioneers in the classical music industry to invest on the digital platforms, including the development of a leading website which allowed consumers to listen to its complete music catalogue, as well as offering them the possibility to download files in MP3 and FLAC digital formats.
