Telling your story in the most effective way

We believe passionately that art in all its forms enriches people’s lives.  With innovative technology, we are developing new and exciting ways of experiencing different art-forms, breaking down barriers between the aural and the visual, and encouraging active participation, rather than passive reception.  All art forms have a story to tell. By bringing new perspectives to the engagement of audiences we will help you see new ways of telling yours. 

Classic Arts Media brings a creative and innovative approach to the arts, using audio and digital media to animate your concepts, ideas and products. We work with you to develop new products, delivering high-quality results quickly in a fast-changing environment. We are responsive to new possibilities inherent in the arts.


Vision is the art of seeing which is invisible to others
— Jonathan Swift


All art forms are relying more and more on digital media to communicate their message. Accessibility to media is now at an all time high with numerous platforms that allow people to engage. By understanding these platforms and the way people use them, we make digital media that delivers your story in the way you want.

Working in the audio field has been at the heart of our company's business, from radio programmes to podcasts and CD production. We have worked with the best of Britain's producers and audio engineers to devise products of the highest possible quality.

Radio - Recording - Live 

We have over 20 years’ experience of making radio programmes for the BBC, ranging from broadcasts of live concerts by top-class artists, orchestral and chamber concerts from major UK venues, entertaining music quizzes recorded in front of audiences at major music festivals,  features on major figures from the arts world, including Lawrence Durrell and Georges Brassens; series devoted to major composers such as Verdi and Britten; and long-running strands with a mixture of music and celebrity guests, including Private Passions, BBC Radio 3’s answer to Desert Island Discs.

Our CD productions include the first recording of Thomas Adès’s groundbreaking opera Powder Her Face, inspired by the scandalous life of Margaret, Duchess of Argyll, which was released by EMI; two operatic rarities from Garsington, Richard Strauss’s little-performed Die Liebe der Danaë and Tchaikovsky’s magical fairy-tale opera Cherevichki; and Richard Strauss’s melodrama for narrator and piano Enoch Arden, performed by actor Henry Goodman and pianist Lucy Parham.

We have produced many recordings of recitals by internationally acclaimed artists, orchestral and chamber concerts from major London venues such as the South Bank and the Wigmore Hall, as well as broadcasts from major music festivals. We devised several series of New Waves chamber concerts from Brandon Hill in Bristol, featuring contemporary music introduced on stage by young British and international composers, as well as innovative themed series of concerts from the Cheltenham Pump Room.
