Contract with Germany’s Ariola

Near the end of 1984, Supraphon concluded a contract of co-operation with the German record company Ariola, which selected from the label’s classical music catalogue several albums for the production of one of Europe’s first CDs. They included the Supraphon recording of Antonín Dvořák’s sympho­nies, made by the Czech Philharmonic, under the baton of Václav Neumann.
