Welcome to the Acte Préalable Website

Afin que les oeuvres humaines accomplies durant les siècles ne se perdent pas dans la nuit de l'oubli, il est bon et juste de maintenir leur mémoire et de la léguer à la postérité.

Henryk Sienkiewicz

 

The Acte Préalable Publishing House is an unquestionable worldwide leader on the classical music market in terms of premiere recordings of Polish music. The label was founded in 1997 with a principal aim of promoting Polish classical music and the following figures attest to this dedication: over 300 CDs available in the catalogue, including over 100 Polish composers, of which over 50 were recorded for the first time, accounting for more than 500 Polish works, mostly first recordings, unavailable elsewhere. Our albums are recorded by the foremost Polish artists, being an excellent introduction into the Polish musical culture. What is more, the covers to our records present outstanding works of mostly Polish painting and contemporary photography. The booklet notes, written by distinguished specialists, provide in many cases an indispensable compendium of knowledge that could hardly be found anywhere else. Our recordings are popular with music connoisseurs around the world and are well reviewed by the international press.

Jan A. Jarnicki
