EratoErato Disques - Almost half a century of recording history
"For almost half a century Erato has been faithfully and imaginatively serving its public both with music by neglected composers and the mainstream repertory. When the Company was founded in 1953 there was very little Renaissance and Baroque music to be found in the catalogues of the recently developed long-playing record. This was to be the area in which Erato was first to make its mark and which subsequently established its fine and enduring reputation. Nowadays, when music from so many centuries and different countries is accessible through the medium of the compact disc, it is easy to forget how different the situation was in those far-off days. One of the chief aims of the Erato pioneers founder Philippe Loury and A&R director Michel Garcin was to bring to life once more the early and Baroque music of their native France and to make it available to as wide an audience as possible."

"We've long known that music has some deeply moving properties. We are just beginning to learn how deeply moving music really is. We are beginning to learn that in the very young, music can reach into the web of thought itself and enhance higher brain function.
We have selected 21 Beautiful logical little gems from Anna Magdalena's Notebooks I & II, written and compiled by the master himself in part for his own children's early exploration of the harmonic system he helped popularize, and recorded them twice. Once in an up-tempo fashion for active play and again as lullabies for quiet time. The benefits of such an arrangement we believe are obvious."
