Matthew Owen has been named as General Manager of the Harmonia Mundi team in Los Angeles with the West Coast office becoming a hub for the company’s Classical and Jazz repertoire. Alongside the Harmonia Mundi classical label – one of the most respected brands in classical music – and in-house labels Jazz and World Village, the LA based team will look after a selective roster of partner labels including premier independent classical labels such as Alia Vox, Channel Classics, Hyperion and Onyx Classics.

They will also continue to develop a growing jazz label roster and continue collaborations with award winning composer Howard Shore’s Howe Records and Ponderosa, the home of Italian pianist and composer Ludovico Einaudi.
