Erato was established in Paris in 1953 with a founding mission to focus on recording French composers and artists, with an emphasis on Renaissance and Baroque music. Over the years, the Erato catalog grew to feature such noted artists as Plácido Domingo, Maxim Vengerov, Daniel Barenboim, Pierre Boulez, Maurice André, Hélène Grimaud, Scott Ross, Marie-Claire Alain, Jean-Pierre Rampal, Susan Graham, and José van Dam. Erato joined the WMG family in 1992. In 2013, Erato was relaunched when the Virgin Classics label became part of WMG through Warner’s acquisition of Parlophone Label Group. Today, Erato records such acclaimed artists as Natalie Dessay, Philippe Jaroussky, Joyce DiDonato, Diana Damrau, the Ébène Quartet, Renaud Capuçon, Gautier Capuçon, and Alexandre Tharaud.
