Since its first release in 1945 (on 78 rpm records!), the Vox record label name, as well as its various imprints Allegretto, VoxBox, Candide, Turnabout & Cameo, have stood for artistic quality along with good consumer value. From its creation by founder George Mendelssohn, its discovery (as well as re-introduction) of great artists, performing both standard and rare repertoire at the highest calibre, and reputation for musical and technical innovation, early adoption of new formats, etc., has resulted in a vast legacy of catalogue excellence.
Today the Vox catalogue begins a new chapter in its history. Its acquisition by the Naxos Music Group will soon allow the music lover and consumer to reacquaint themselves with the enormous number of performances in its archive, and a comprehensive series of reissues will begin soon.
