Universal’s Decca label has announced the launch of a new classical-focused music publishing division, led by Natasha Baldwin, previously of Imagem.

“Natasha Baldwin is an exceptionally skilled and experienced publishing executive with a renowned track record”, says CEO of Universal’s Global Classics division Dickon Stainer. “Her appointment will enable us to offer new publishing and synchronisation services to our classical artists and neo-classical composers, alongside the recording activities of our legendary classical labels and the world-famous Universal Music Publishing Classical catalogue.”

Baldwin herself adds: “Using the platform of global brand campaigns, movies and media exploitation I’ve spent many years proving the versatility and accessibility of classical and neo-classical music. We’ve reached a moment where the democratisation of music discovery via streaming is giving developing genres a voice like never before. Through Decca Publishing my goal will be to amplify this offering and further broaden the impact of neo-classical music worldwide”.
