Seller spotlight : Classical Music

Dear Friend of Classical Music,
My name is Heinz-Joerg Jansen and I would like to introduce “Classical Music Records” – Vinyls from Berlin since over 25 years. So let me tell you the story behind our company.

In the early 90s a friend challenged me by asking for recordings of this favourite conductor Sergio Celibidache. I said “of cause, no problem” without knowing that there was almost nothing available as the perfectionist Celibidache extremely rarely approved recordings. After frustrating research I asked some dealers at the biggest flee market in Berlin and found Istvan Toth who moved heaven and earth to organize two Canadian bootlegs for me.

Istvan studied Music and philosophy but made his passion for vinyl records to his business. He became a friend, I took care of his bookkeeping and tax and he paid me with wonderful records for many, many years.

Peter Hellerhoff is my friend since the late 80s. He plays piano very well and became a successful software developer. After he sold his share in the software company, he had time and I introduced him to Istvan as the synergy between both, the music loving IT specialist and the vinyl dealer with an incredible knowledge and stock was obvious.
Peter created the online shop and Istvan is buying the records. We started our shop beginning 2017 and are more than happy with its development. Reason for this is our common love for classical music, Peter´s organization talent and especially Istvan´s knowledge. You can find all genres of classical music though we have different favourites.
As mentioned before, Peter loves piano, Istvan contemporary classical music and I old music. Sometimes it´s hard for us to sell a record that we would love to have in our own collection but we often get mails from buyers that share their enthusiasm for such treasuries and all of us are happy.

All the best from Berlin and Aachen

Istvan, Peter and Heinz-Joerg
