Don't know if this is the best place to put this post; I looked and did not see a "Favorite  LabeLs" thread (maybe if this discussion takes off one can be created).

Mine are:

ECM New Series
Glossa
Zig Zag
Naive
Brilliant
Naxos


Those last two are favorites because they provide a wealth of music at usually budget prices in always decent, sometimes, fantastic performances.

These labels almost always produce something I am interested in.  What about you?  Are there labels you trust more than others?

Agreed about Brilliant Classics and Naxos.

Hyperion
cpo
MDG
Genuin
Toccata Classics
BIS
Timpani
Tactus


The last one not always has a good sound but their releases are always interesting to me.

cpo and Hyperion are labels I could have included, MDG I like and BIS - but I haven't known about Genuin or Toccata Classics.  Will check them out.   8)

Interesting idea, San Antone. I suppose I could give a ‘Top 5’ list or something along those lines:

Harmonia Mundi
BIS
Hyperion
Warner Classics (especially for their reissues of other labels like Erato, EMI, Virgin Classics, Teldec, etc.)
Alpha

I would like to point out one of my favorite Record of all time vanished died, why why why...

Caliope was like Chateau Margot of good taste at least in Renaissance, did Caliope ever deceived you In the past, I feel so sad there gone, they had Clerks of Oxenford and Jachet the Mantoue Ensemble I.e great ensemble... que du bon j'en pleure  Caliope est mort, qui a tué Caliope, the same thing for Lyricord blast for vinyl they were marvelous...

What kind of sick world we live in, tell me guys this, could be a tread by itself but name Records label you miss now, that were pure magic?

It's founder ended the label in 2010, thinking that the Classical recording industry was dying.

He was wrong, obviously.... Phaia Records briefly took over, managing some poorly executed reissues.

In 2011 French Indésens took over and resurrected the label:

I have an affection for Erato Disques, which disappeared, first absorbed by Warner, who then acquired EMI and rebranded Virgin releases as Erato. Abomination!

Also Telefunken, which became Teldec, and has now been absorbed into Warner.

And Philips.....  :'(

The old guard within the electronics company fought a fierce battle to retain the label, which was doing well but didn't fit in the new strategy of focusing on core activities.

Yes, that is another. It was a gradual process, first absorbed into the Polygram group (in the late 70's, I think), continued independent production for a time, then merged into Decca, then the name disappeared.
