Here’s what others say about Cedille Records.

President, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, 1985-2003
There is virtually no “corporate approach” at Cedille, something that is unfortunately quite common elsewhere. At Cedille, I encounter a family of people interested in the project, from the top of organization (James Ginsburg) to the engineer and everyone I see there. Suddenly, it is not “my CD” anymore, it is everyone’s project, and everyone seems to be as eager to see a positive outcome as I am.
Principal Oboe, Chicago Symphony Orchestra 1995–2004
Every release Cedille puts out is of outstanding quality; production values, from ensembles to repertory to booklet notes and package look are never anything less that superb. This is a great example of a locally-organized and locale-specific enterprise taking on global significance over time. It’s hard to find fault with any aspect of their releases, and believe me, as a longtime reviewer, I try hard.
I want to thank you…. I didn’t know that what you’ve done on these works was actually humanly (and digitally) possible, so I’ll be holding other editors to this gold standard that you’ve shown to me.
