In 2009, Kattenberg Recordings started as a non-profit record label, founded by recorder player Geert Van Gele. He conceived Kattenberg Recordings as a vehicle for all of his diverse musical activities, ranging from the ensemble for medieval music, Quadrivium and baroque ensemble Sospiri Ardenti, to his many solo and duo projects, both in the field of early music and contemporary classical. With a great passion for sounds, his interest in recording techniques resulted over the years in building his own recording studio. What started off as a way to record the solo recorder, things 'evolved' somewhat: for the most recent CD, Kattenberg Recordings was asked to produce a retrospective of Flemish composer Janpieter Biesemans, which included recording some of Belgians finest soloists as well as a professional string orchestra. Kattenberg recordings is planning to keep expanding its catalog on a regular base. New releases both on CD and on Itunes are planned in the near future. Stay tuned!
