‘While the big record companies flounder, the independents flourish. The Royal Academy of Music’s own label is a case in point, with some jolly good recordings in its catalogue’ — Metro

The Academy has an expanding catalogue of high-quality CDs featuring student performances. 

Academy recordings are regularly broadcast by BBC Radio 3, Classic FM and the BBC World Service, and selected discs are distributed worldwide. Most discs are available for sale from Academy Chimes, with all proceeds used to fund future recordings. You can listen to many of our recordings on Spotify and at the Naxos Music Library. Selected releases are also available from iTunes, eMusic and other online retailers.

We are deeply grateful for the support of Lady Susie Sainsbury towards the Academy’s catalogue of recordings.
