Welcome to APR - or Appian Publications & Recordings to quote our full title, though we are invariably more familiarly known simply as "APR".
Within the relatively short time APR has been in existence it has won an enviable reputation as a quality label devoted predominantly - though not exclusively - to piano recordings, both new and historic. In particular APR has won countless laurels for the high standard of its 78rpm restoration work - "Transfers of genius" to quote one critic - as well as the detail and content of its tri-lingual booklets - "Presentation is, as always with APR, immaculate" - to cite another accolade. These features have been recognised by the award of numerous international honours, not least an unprecedented 9 Grand Prix by the Liszt Society of Budapest in recent years.
In September 2004, following the retirement of its founder, Bryan Crimp, APR changed hands, though the aspirations of the label remain unchanged. APR is now based in London, England and has entered into a worldwide distribution agreement with Hyperion records which should significantly improve the availability of its titles across the globe. Our new distributors can be seen on the Distributors page.
The APR mail-order service is now also fulfilled by Hyperion Records. Full details can be found in the Ordering section. We also have a world-wide mailing list by which we advise our customers of new releases as and when they are released.
