Welcome

On our website you will find information about the comprehensive list of recordings of classical music and big band jazz offered by SWRmusic.

We are glad, to present the new label SWR jazzhaus, wich is a new music label featuring an indefinite number of audio and video jazz programs taken from live radio and television recordings from the archives of Südwestrundfunk Stuttgart, Baden-Baden and Mainz in south west Germany. You will find them under "Catalogue / Editions".
