Deutsche Grammophon GmbH, Hamburg

The story of Deutsche Grammophon goes back as far as the birth of recording itself. In June 1898, the company is founded in Hanover along with the first record and gramophone manufacturing works. Its directors are Emile Berliner – the Hanover-born American inventor of both the disc and the player – and his brother Joseph. Their factory uses American-made hydraulic presses to produce shellac discs for the Gramophone Company, established earlier that year in London by Emile’s associate William Barry Owen, with recordings supervised by Emile’s American associate Fred Gaisberg. By 1900, when the Deutsche Grammophon Gesellschaft becomes a joint-stock company with headquarters in Berlin, Berliner’s disc has eclipsed Edison’s cylinder as the industry standard, and Gaisberg is busy acquiring respectability for the new medium by signing up famous artists. Today, Deutsche Grammophon continues its revolutionary work with a new generation of artists: Francesco Tristano, Anna Netrebko, Elina Garanca, Magdalena Kozena, Hilary Hahn, Patricia Petibon, Mojca Erdmann, Lisa Batiashvili, Sol Gabetta, and diversifies in other musical styles, such as world music (Anoushka Shankar, Diego El Cigala), electronic music (Carl Craig) or song (Juliette Greco, Sting).
