The outstanding classical music label ARS Produktion was founded by Annette Schumacher in 1988 with the aim to provide young, aspiring artists and their unique musical projects with a home base and corresponding market opportunities through international sales and distribution. After completing her musical education with Paul Meisen and many years as a professional concert flautist, Annette Schumacher has realised a commercial dream.
Recording engineer and producer Manfred Schumacher is responsible for the exceptional quality of the label’s many recording projects.
Among the distinguishing features of the ARS Produktion label and of its founders is an unwavering commitment to meet the acoustic requirements of the music, the instruments and the respective historical period with the help of the latest and most sophisticated recording techniques. Annette and Manfred Schumacher act on their convictions, combining art, commerce and business acumen in a skilful manner.
