Lexicon Classics Announces Future Releases

By Francisco Salazar

Emitha Studio and Lexicon Classics have announced future plans for upcoming recordings.

The newly created company noted that “it understands classical music audiences are growing, and they’re growing where most music lives: online, in the digital sphere. With their immensely popular playlists and effective marketing and promotion strategies, their artists benefit from a cultivated audience of over 100,000 active listeners. Their artists had over 4 million streams in 2020-21 alone.”

In a statement founder Gillian Riesen  said, “When Emitha began, our goal was to help artists shape and expand their creative media and share it with a wider audience. Naturally, when we thought of musicians in particular, launching a record label seemed like the logical next step! We hope Lexicon Classics can become a place where artists feel inspired, important and taken care of.”

The company announced that future projects will include Tamara Wilson singing the world premiere recording of “Tiffany’s Spellbook” by Evan L. Snyder; Laura Virella with “Al menos cantos,” an album of Puerto Rican songs from Jack Delano; and pianist Chris Reynolds’ “Past is Prologue,” an album of piano transcriptions bridging time periods and genres that illustrates the power of the past to create the future in which we live.

The company will debut its first recording on Jan. 28 with “Lament” featuring Sidney Outlaw.
