Challenge Classics

Shakespeare said "If music be the food of love, play on!” The team of Challenge Classics embraces these words and like to take them even one step further: music is not only the food of love, but even the food for LIFE itself. “If music be the food of LIFE, play on!”

Founded in 1994 and located in the Netherlands, this label is run by people who are passionate about music. Leading national and international artists are represented, performing a wide variety of music. Ton Koopman and the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra perform Bach Cantatas, La Petite Bande performs the Matthaus Passion, Christoph Pregardien performs Schubert Lieder and much more...

The extensive catalogue offers a lot of chamber music, but also contains a number of excellent recordings of the ‘lied-repertoire' and symphonic music. The company is artist-driven, which means that the artist has a big say in the whole process. Challenge Classics works with artists like Ton Koopman, Jaap van Zweden, Christoph Prégardien, Isabelle van Keulen, La Petite Bande under the baton of Sigiswald Kuijken, Simone Lamsma, Liza Ferschtman, Jan Willem de Vriend, Hannes Minnaar and many others.
