Danacord is a Danish classical music record label founded in 1979 in Copenhagen by Jesper Buhl. Danacord has made many premiere recordings of lesser known Danish music.[1][2] Danacord has also re-released historical recordings such as the survey by Kai Laursen (1924-1996) survey for Danish Radio of 26 Danish violin concertos, covering 200 years, in 10 volumes.[3]

I thought I knew my Danish musical history reasonably well, but there are names here that I am not sure I have ever come.. " Page 27 "gloriously what-the-hell approach of Jesper Buhl, the head of Danacord - that, despite the evidence of the set spread in front of me, it still strikes me as slightly unreal."
