Samek Music

Clarinet & Saxophone Classics recordings

Founded in 1992 by Victoria Soames Samek, Clarinet Classics was the first CD label dedicated to a specific instrument.

It’s a unique specialist label devoted to releasing top quality recordings of players and music made available to a wide public. Supported by informative notes, our recordings are designed to open up the incredible world of rare and often forgotten gems of the repertoire performed by international artists of today and great figures of the past.

Clarinet Classics gives a focus for the clarinet in all its richness and diversity; to be enjoyed by enthusiasts, students, performers and listeners alike.

“Victoria Soames Samek’s energy as curator of Clarinet Classics continues to impress.”
