From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Deutsche Grammophon is a German classical record label. The company has long been known for its high standards of audio fidelity.

The Deutsche Grammophon Gesellschaft was founded in 1898 by German-born United States citizen Emile Berliner as the German branch of his Berliner Gramophone Company. Based in the city of Hanover, the company had links with the U.S. Victor Talking Machine Company and the British HMV, but those links were severed at the onset of World War I.
