Supraphon and global distribution
Representatives of Supraphon and Abeille Musique signed in Paris a contract on distribution. The distributors in 25 countries, with which Supraphon had entered into similar contracts, included Qualiton Imports (USA), RSK Entertainment (UK), Musikvertrieb AG (Switzerland), Diverdi Classics (Spain) and King International Inc. (Japan). Supraphon’s recordings have also been exported to Poland, Hungary, Germany, Austria, Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, Italy, Greece, Portugal, Norway, Sweden, Canada, as well as China, Korea and Taiwan, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. The highest proportion of its CDs have been classical music albums, although Supraphon’s bestselling recordings in Scandinavia and Germany include the soundtrack for the Czech film version of the fairy tale Three Gifts for Cinderella (Drei Haselnüsse für Aschenbrödel), to music by Karel Svoboda.
