This month is very special for us because it has been five years since we started a new label dedicated to film music. In other words, we are celebrating our 5th anniversary!

Since then, we have released 155 albums and believe that with them we have achieved our goal: to create a niche label with eclectic taste where new and old films—some very-well known and some pretty obscure—can co-exist, representing composers and films of all nationalities, all produced with the same commitment and serious dedication.

Throughout these five years we have earned the confidence of several composers, studios and companies around the world, establishing excellent relationships with them and making it possible to continue our work of releasing their scores. We would like to thank MGM, Paramount Pictures, Sony Pictures, Universal, Studio Canal, Lionsgate, Gruppo Sugar, Beat Records, GDM, EMI General Music, Cinevox, Pathé, Gaumont, Hori Prod, Mercury Films, Telecinco Cinema, Apaches Entertainment, El Deseo, UMG, Capitol Records and Sony Music (not to mention some new companies with whom we will begin working in the future) for the opportunity to collaborate with them.

The list of titles in our pipeline for the remainder of 2014 and 2015 is, we think, impressive. Some will be reissues and some will be expansions of previous albums, but most of them will be world premiere releases. So, rest assured, Quartet Records will be here! Our number of releases will continue to be between three and five CDs each month—typically two releases every two weeks. And if you want to know about them, please regularly check the "Upcoming Releases" button on our website and our Facebook page. We will be much more forthcoming from now on, giving specific information and dates with fewer clues and games.

Obviously, we did not do this work alone. There are many great professionals who have been and are involved in every project, and they have helped us advance to where we are today. We want to give special thanks to all the record producers that have worked with us (Claudio Fuiano, Lukas Kendall, Stéphane Lerouge, Nick Redman, James Fitzpatrick), writers (Frank K. DeWald, John Takis, Daniel Schweiger, Randall D. Larson, Tim Greiving, Andy Dursin, Jeff Bond, Bruce Kimmel, Gergely Hubai, Miguel A. Barroso, Roberto Cueto, Óscar Salas), sound and transfer engineers (José Luis Crespo, José Vinader, Marc Blanes, J.M. Rosillo, Raúl Ros, Quique Roldán, Daniel Hersch, Johnny Dee Davis, Doug Johnson, Dániel Winkler, Enrico De Gemini, Christophe Henault, Jean Pierre Chalbos), our designer Nacho B. Govantes for our wonderful packaging, and all the retailers and distributors—both physical and digital—that sell our albums worldwide. And of course, we can’t forget the most important component of our success: our loyal customers.

Therefore, to celebrate our 5th anniversary, during the next two weeks we are offering a 35% DISCOUNT on all our products. Simply place your order online and 35% of your overall price will be automatically deducted at checkout. Temporality out of stock titles are not included in the offer.

In addition, with the purchase of 6 CDs or more, we will add FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING—with a registered track number!

Please be aware that for many titles we have only very limited quantities (for some, less than 10 copies!). And our licenses for some titles expire in September and they will be unavailable for purchase after the summer is over.

Sale starts right now at www.quartetrecords.com and runs through 7/27.


Thank you all very much—and long live film music!

What an absolutely fantastic deal - I've immediately ordered 7 of your wonderful CDs!
Thanks so much for this sheer act of musical generousity!

Only now I need to find a new way to finance La-La Land's upcoming "Naked Gun Trilogy" Box Set ... wink

Yes, suggestions? I'm unfamiliar with most of these scores. Time of Destiny and Passage to India perks my interest. Sadly I missed out on Mac and Me.

Yes,you have released many excellent titles in the past year and I was there to purchase them. I checked the Quartet Records website and nothing is listed under upcoming releases.

I definitely recommend checking out some of their lesser known offerings. Last year Pascal Gaigne's Amaren Eskuak was a lovely suprise, for instance.

I also would like to give praise to your excellent designer Nacho B. Govantes. As a designer myself I must say he does a very good job and the designs always look wonderful.

And I would also like to recommend Pascal Gaigne, he does great melodic scores. If you don't know his work you should check some samples and take advantage of the sale. You will not regret it. For some reason his excellent 'Katmandu: Un espejo en el cielo' is already sold out for months on the Quartet site but SAE still has copies for sale.

Congratulations with your 5th anniversary. I look forward to many new Quartet releases in the future. Thank you very much for all the work and effort to all involved! Much appreciated.

Is the sale any indication that the Legrand and Morricone are the final Collectors releases before a summer break?

Can we expect anymore Delerue?

I always buy at least one title from every new Quartet batch!

I think I might go Italian... once again with a sprinkle of Mancini. Can't believe Sunflower is stil around. Damn so many interesting scores to choose from I never got around to.

My congratulations to Quartet and to everyone involved for their pristine workmanship. A toast to another great five years and many more, with lots and lots of great film music releases!

Sunflower is a marvelous achievement, a great release all around.

There was also a hint about two Fielding releases in 2014 on Quartet! smile

Hi, Quartet Records.

In 2009, didn't your label start out as "Singular Soundtrack"?

I have the Singular editions of WHO CAN KILL A CHILD? as well as LADY CAROLINE LAMB.

When did Singular transform itself into Quartet?

My guess it was with your release of Jarre's SHOUT AT THE DEVIL; this album's data looks like a combo between Singular and Quartet...

... by the way, is there any hope of Mr. Benitez contacting composer Luis De Pablo to inquire about availability of De Pablo's film music tapes?
