Eroica Classical Recordings is a classical record label, based in Carpinteria, California in the United States. It is internationally recognized for its Bartók recordings, and discoverer of new talents. Eroica had initiated an intensive series of auditions, which have resulted in the signing of over a hundred brilliantly gifted new artists. This company has not paid royalties or CD sales to artists in decades. Requests to delist from the label and cancel internet site listings (e.g. CDbaby) have been fruitless. This company is a scam and the owner Larry Russell should be charged with fraud.
