Cameo Classics

Cameo Classics is owned by David Kent-Watson who had built Indigo Sound Studios in Manchester with Bob Auger. David and Bob had worked as sound engineers with BBC TV in London and Granada TV in Manchester. Cameo Classics centred on recording unfairly neglected classical music on location, whereas the 24-track Indigo Sound Studios entertained the likes of Marc Bolan, Sad Café, Bay City Rollers to name just a few and produced commercials for Manchester's new Piccadilly Radio.

Cameo Classics was founded in 1973 and their first classical recording, "Music for Violin and Piano", was recorded at Indigo Sound Studios with Bob Auger engineering the sessions. This recording, restored by Klassic Haus in the USA, featuring Michael Davis, leader of the Hallé Orchestra on violin and Hallé pianist Rayson Whalley performing the Walton Violin Sonata (CC9001CD).

Cameo Classics concentrates on recording the works of neglected British and Jewish German composers. To date, the label has premiered 108 compositions and new recordings are always in the pipeline.

“It is his piano works that feature on a new release from the enterprising Cameo Classics label. Peter Hill’s performances are excellent with many insights into this singular composers smaller scale works. The recording is warm but full of detail. There are useful booklet notes by the late Harold Truscott. Cameo Classics must be thanked for bringing these recordings to us.” theclassicalreviewer.blogspot.co.uk
