Welcome to Revitalized Classics!
Hello, my name is David and I founded Revitalized Classics in 2018. I live and work in Glasgow, in the UK.
Why start a record label?
I love opera and classical music and I have taken a hobby - audio engineering/remastering - and turned it into my full time job.
I'm fascinated by how modern technology allows us to hear details from the recordings which were not as obvious before because of mechanical issues like hiss and clicks.
Why choose these recordings?
I've chosen these projects because they are often historically important - for instance, debut performances, the only recordings of a particular work by famous conductors etc which can be exciting and because remastering has transformed the sound quality.
As we are a small company we can reissue unusual repertoire which might not sell in big numbers but which are appreciated by opera and classical music fans.
Why sell downloads?
I love preserving great recordings for the future in the best possible sound quality. I have transferred the albums to digital, reduced clicks and pops and other mechanical noise which can get in the way of your enjoyment. I've frequently used several copies of LPs to find the best sound.
Since I've been working with downloads I really appreciate their convenience, the speed they can be sent to the customers and, because they do not require postage and packing, they offer excellent value for money.
