Forgotten Records is a French music label specialised in classical music. We are driven by our passion for music and interpretation.



Time recaptured | We publish recordings that have received too little attention in recent history. We are willing to revive great classical pieces and reveal their true essence.

Restoration | Elisabeth Schwarzkopf would complain that she did not recognise her voice when played on a CD. We want the listener to forget about the original LP and feel the musicality of the vinyl with no disturbing noises.

Sound | Our remastering is the kind of craftsmanship that has no interest in being time-efficient. Our CDs are made with the best-in-class studio techniques so as to deliver the unique experience of a master recording.


Contemporary artists

Unknown pieces | We record and produce unpublished pieces as well as great classical music that most labels have discontinued. Those unknown pieces are found in albums such as "Echoes of the Battlefieds" (awarded the Music Prize by the Fondation Napoléon) or in CDs dedicated to Jean Cras, Claude Duboscq, Michael Sebaoun, Yvon Bourrel or Jean-Jacques Werner.

Young talents | Our label gives talented musicians the opportunity to make a very first record. We particularly value music pieces that have received limited attention on the music scene.


Writings about music

Emotions in music originate from a particular meaning that is being asserted thoughout the music sheet. Our authors strive to expose the plural meaning that lies behind every musical piece.

In the press

 Forgotten Records keeps on publishing copyright-free recordings at a relentless pace. Music majors have typically dismissed this material as irrelevant to their catalogues.


 [Forgotten Records] is like finding a long-lost friend. [Their] enthousiasm is infectious and our cross-Channel phone conversation soon descends into “Don't you think?” and “I totally agree!”.

Nick Morgan, CRQ

 Forgotten Records is pure bliss for collectors [...] Malinin, Uninsky, Malcuzynski, Wayenberg, Levant, Bruck, Sebastian, Bour, Flipse, Adler... Those names will now be legends for eternity.

Michel Fleury, Classica

 [W]e hear truly classy singing. All the characteristics of her singing on my old LPs are there.

Göran Forsling, MusicWeb

 The French label Forgotten Records continues taking our breath away.

Orchestre des Jeunes de Haute Bretagne

L’Orchestre des Jeunes de Haute Bretagne” (The Youth Orchestra of Brittany) was created in 1985. It is composed of two parts: a symphonic orchestra directed by Didier Roussel since 1989 and a guitar ensemble consisting of energetic, young musicians who all study musicology. More than eighty musicians, between the ages of twelve and fifty-five, meet to perform a varied orchestral repertory including classical, jazz, film and world music to worldwide music. The Youth Orchestra of Brittany gives six to seven concerts a year in Rennes, Brittany and beyond.

Much more than an orchestra ! The Youth Orchestra from Brittany is an association managed by a volunteer board of directors composed of parents and adult musicians who aim at developing personal, cultural and musical exchanges. International meetings with orchestras, musical groups and choirs are organized each year. The Youth Orchestra of Brittany then gives concerts for the Breton people to promote the access to music to the most possible.
