Oehms stepped down as managing director of budget-price label Arte Nova last year after it was fully integrated into parent company BMG Classics, which bought his shares. He has now attracted some former Arte Nova artists - including pianist Alfredo Perl, baritone Roman Trekel and conductor Stanislaw Skrowaczewski - into the studio for his own eponymous label. Oehms also plans to re-release certain currently unavailable recordings from the Arte Nova catalogue, including recordings by the Lucern Festival Strings and the Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg, which he had produced."
