ECM (Edition of Contemporary Music) is a German record label founded in 1969 by Manfred Eicher. Spanning the gamut from jazz to classical and various hybrids thereof, ECM has since its inception been at the forefront of contemporary music and has been widely recognized for its meticulous recordings and distinctive cover art.

Remaining devoted to the acoustic piano, despite the contemporary fashion for the electronic keyboard, Jarrett continued to write music for his own group. He has also composed for larger numbers and has integrated existing classical music ensembles into his works, as he did with the American Brass Quintet and the string section of the Stuttgart Philharmonic on his double album In the Light (1976). His association with ECM has continued based on his collaborations with producer Manfred Eicher, and his jazz and classical compositions are released by that label. His most popular ECM albums are the solo piano recordings Facing You, Solo Concerts, and The Koln Concert.(1975).

ECM's success with its distinct version of jazz helped Eicher to expand into the music of classical composers with the ECM New Series label in 1984. This label features such contemporary artists as Estonian composer Arvo Part and vocalist-composer Meredith Monk, as well as Steve Reich, Veljo Tormis, Gyorgy Kurtag, Alfred Schnittke, Giya Kancheli, Heinz Holliger, Gavin Bryars, and John Adams. New Series has also released several of Keith Jarrett's interpretations of Bach, Dmitri Shostakovich, and Josef Haydn. The label's biggest success, however, was Officium, a collaboration between Jan Garbarek and the Hilliard Ensemble vocal group. Recorded in an Austrian monastery, the album sold close to one million copies. In 2001 Eicher received a Grammy Award for Classical Producer of the Year for his work on the recordings Morimur, a collaboration between Christopher Poppen and the Hilliard Ensemble; Heinz Holliger's opera based on Robert Walser's macabre version of Snow White, Schneewittchen; Andras Schiff's recording of keyboard music by Leos Janacek, A Recollection; the Rosamunde String Quartet rendition of Haydn's The Seven Words; and Thomas Zehetmair and the Camerata Bern's Verklarte Nacht/Shoenberg, Bartok and Veress.


Fred Sherry's book 25 Bach Duets from the Cantatas was published by Boosey & Hawkes in 2011, the revised edition was released in 2019. C.F. Peters unveiled his treatise on contemporary string playing, A Grand Tour of Cello Technique, in 2018. 041b061a72
