Hyperion Records, which was recently bought by Universal, has decided to make its catalogue of recordings available on streaming platforms for the first time.
The first batch of 200 Hyperion recordings has just gone up on Apple Music, Spotify, iTunes and so on. As the Hyperion catalogue is very large, it will be released in batches over the next ten months or so.
I am the pianist on all the recordings I’ve mentioned.
Hyperion has always been a superb label, but its previous policy of not allowing its records to be on the main streaming platforms has arguably restricted the number of people who know the recordings – more so as time has gone on. That always made me feel sad, so I’m pleased that these fine recordings will now more easily reach a wider audience.
