Description

Czech label with focus on classical music and with a large catalog of pop, jazz and folk music as well as spoken word.

The “Supraphon” name first appeared in early 20th century in Germany, but it was never used there as a label. In Czechoslovakia, the “Supraphon” trademark has been registered since 1932, initially for a record player.

The Supraphon logo “Lion with Lyre” was registered in 1949.

From the 1950s until the early 1990s, Supraphon was the main Czechoslovak record label, as well as licensee and distributor of foreign releases for the domestic market. The label is active in all genres, including classical, pop, rock, jazz, folk music, spoken word, and even several experimental and scientific releases.

From 1994 until 2003, the label was focused mainly on classical releases.
