Artist Led, Creatively Driven

GAIA Records

Every year, the GAIA Music Festival takes place on Lake Thun, Switzerland, the artistic brain-child of violinist Gwendolyn Masin.

After each edition of the festival, a selection of the most meaningful works are brought together on a recording and released on GAIA Records.

Orchid Classics is extremely pleased to be working with GAIA, bringing the albums to the public via Apple, Spotify and all other major digital music platforms.
