How to use the download codes of our releases.

Some antivirus programmes warn the user before downloading a ZIP-file, which is how we deliver the audio tracks. Our files have been tested for viruses. However, we do not accept liability for the unexpected case of defects.


currently this only applies to our releases "Schumann symphonies" and "Harnoncourt conducts Schubert". Releases on other labels (e.g. Deutsche Grammophon or Sony) do not include download codes.
