ArtistLed is an independent recording company founded in 1997 by cellist David Finckel and pianist Wu Han. To date, the label has released sixteen recordings, all to critical acclaim.
 
ArtistLed is an enterprise that evolved out of the desire of two musicians to produce recordings in an environment free from constraints: artistic, commercial, technical and procedural. ArtistLed is not as much a company as a means for musicians to record what they want the way they want and to offer their records directly to the public.The musicians are controlling participants in every aspect of the recording process, from selecting the repertoire and recording venue to setting the sound, running the sessions, constructing the edits, and determining the final mix. The result is a performance that combines the excitement and spontaneity of a live concert with the sonic and musical perfection expected of a studio recording.
