About Harmonia Mundi

Harmonia Mundi is an independent, family-run record label. Founded in 1958 by Bernard Coutaz in Arles, France and currently based in Germany, Harmonia Mundi has become a leader in the exploration and recording of rare musical repertoire that extends from the Gregorian chant of the Middle Ages to the dawn of the Romantic era. Latin for “world harmony,” Harmonia Mundi’s catalogue is devoted to classical, especially historically-accurate period performances, and, through the World Village label, world music. In 1982, the company added Harmonia Mundi USA, encompassing the Hyperion, Alia Vox, and San Francisco Symphony labels, and, today, Harmonia Mundi also includes World Village and Le Chant du Monde.
