Our Management Team
Roger founded Classical.com in 2000 with the objective of making our recorded cultural heritage available to the widest possible audience. For many years he was a pianist performing in the USA, UK and Europe ("Chopin's F minor Ballade featured confident, genuinely musical playing" New York Times, September 1987). To make the move into the business world he got an MBA from INSEAD, which is Europe's premier business school. From there he joined EMI where he won an EMMY Award as Executive Producer of "Itzhak Perlman in Russia" a TV show with CD spin off. He continued to work in video heading up the classical video division at PolyGram (now Universal) and worked in the Entertainment and Media consulting division of PricewaterhouseCoopers prior to founding Classical.com. He has built a team dedicated to producing the world's premier music service of cultural music.
