Classic Produktion Osnabrück (often referred to as cpo, in lowercase) is a record label founded in 1986 by Georg Ortmann and several others. Its declared mission is to fill niches in the recorded classical repertory, with an emphasis on romantic, late romantic and 20th-century music.[1] The label also aims to release complete cycles of recordings, such as complete sets of symphonies, concertos, chamber music, and so forth. It is the house label of online retailer jpc.[2]


Recordings issued by cpo include (see second external link; some of these are no longer available)

Some of these works (for example, most of the Hindemith compositions, Spohr's symphonies, some of Spohr's concertos, and various Pfitzner orchestral pieces) had been recorded in the past, by other performers on other labels; but quite a few of them had not.
