Bookmark and Share

Analekta, the largest independent classical music label in Canada, is now an Apple Music Curator.  In addition to sharing its own classical music knowledge and expertise in the form of thematic playlists, it will also call upon its artists to curate playlists of their own favourite music and share on Apple Music.  Analekta will propose an initial selection of 17 playlists based on themes such as Classical Sunday Brunch, Weekend Music, Classical Music For Roadtrip and others focusing on the repertoire of some of its artists, such as Angèle Dubeau, Charles Richard-Hamelin and Alain Lefèvre.  New playlists based on moods and activities will be added throughout the year.  

Analekta's president and founder, François Mario Labbé, said: "We are very happy to become an Apple Music Curator.  We have a rich catalogue and we will provide tasteful and inspired playlists, and an outstanding listening experience for those who enjoy classical music."

Founded in 1987, 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. Throughout the years, its recordings have received numerous national and international awards and Gold certifications for sales in Canada.  Analekta recently announced that the musical works from its catalogue have now been streamed 100 million times.
