Aim

Stichting Gutman Records aims to support classical chamber music in the Netherlands, among other things through the production and release of musical recordings/cd’s/lp’s and the organisation of concerts.

Summary of the current policy plan

The policy plan 2018-2023 states that the foundation shall produce several cd’s and lp’s, including several projects of Camerata RCO. New projects will always be quality tested. In order to be eligible for release on the Gutman Records label, the execution has to be of the highest quality. A cd or lp must also add something to existing repertoire for it to be released, for example because of the performance or because a piece was not released before on cd. The premisse thereby is that all costs involved in a project are covered: a project will in principle not be financed on the basis of expected turnover or otherwise. The decision whether a project can be released on the Gutman Records label is made by the board.

Gutman Records regularly receives gifts from private individuals and entities who sympathize with the foundation and its aim. In that context, the foundation has been recognized as a cultural ANBI (Algemeen Nut Beogende Instelling) by the Dutch tax authorities. Consequently, gifts can be made in a (Dutch) tax friendly manner and such gifts can thus be used as much as possible for the activities of Gutman Records. Gifts may be made for specific projects or more generally for the activities of Gutman Records. The foundation furthermore receives income from the enterprise it conducts, being the release and sale of cd’s/lp’s and music recordings on other media.
