This is true not only for our reliable music editions but also for the recordings produced on the Carus label, which was founded at the same time as the publishing house in order to make rare and unpublished works available to be heard by the public.

The continued expansion of repertoire, as well as the unique expression of visual imagery in the design of the CDs has led to the Carus label becoming one of the largest independent labels in Germany.
