Welcome

to the homepage of SWRmusic, the CD label of the Southwest German Radio. SWRmusic was the first independent ARD label and is the only one with five outstanding ensembles of its own. 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".
