First Hand Records

FHR release the finest quality classical, world and jazz recordings performed by some of the greatest artists of the past, present and future. Although a relatively new company, FHR has quickly established itself as a significant independent record label. Indeed, their releases have been recognised by the press as “fascinating” and “remarkable” and are always produced to the highest standard. Their success is a product of high aesthetic value from an experienced, enthusiastic and dedicated FHR team.

Alongside exciting new recordings, FHR specialise in issuing important gems of the past on its historical sub-label FHR Remasters. Most of these recordings have never been issued before and include recordings newly discovered by FHR through their research in various tape archives. To date, FHR have licensed recordings from the EMI, HMV, Pye/Nixa, Universal/Westminster and Capitol Records catalogues and also broadcast recordings from BBC Radio and NCRV in Holland. Wherever possible, FHR work from the original masters thus producing the best possible sound. Indeed, it has been written that “Few remastering teams have attended to vintage tapes with more loving attention than First Hand Records…”(Gramophone Magazine, July 2012).
