Record your own CD
SHEVA-VILLA BOSSI is an important recording project born thanks to the collaboration between Accademia Europea Villa Bossi and the label Sheva Collection. It offers an additional promotion service for the Young Artists of the Accademia.
Sheva Collection is an Italian Label basing its operations in the UK at the impressive facilities of the Wyastone Estate near Monmouth. Nimbus Disc-and-Print, also at the same location, is already producing its CDs.
Sheva -Villa Bossi plans to develop a specialization in music on historical instruments (originals and replicas).
The artists involved in this venture are selected from among the YARs (young artists) of the Accademia Europea Villa Bossi: young talented musicians who come from all over the world to follow master classes held by some of the most important musicians and experts in historical instruments.
CDs recorded in the delightful rooms of Villa Bossi on instruments built or restored by BIZZI – Historical Keyboard Instruments will be added to the Sheva catalogue and distributed worldwide through the important network of international distributors that collaborate with Sheva.
Recording service is also available for other artists who want to use our recording studios. These recordings will be edited in Villa Bossi by another label of Sheva group.
We will be happy to explain in more detail on request how this arrangement works and the various options open to you, should you wish to consider working with us.
