  • Robert Holmen says:

    How do the economics of this work? If classical recordings truly only sell in the dozens each week, how does the company make money on this signing?

    • Henrik says:

      You are talking about US numbers? Sales in Central Europe and Asia are much better these days, actually some markets there see an increase in sales in the last couple of years.
