Discover classical music at its best - the Condon collection!
15 Jul 2021

Get to know one of the best classical music catalogues in the world! The iconic Condon Collection was compiled by Denis Condon over sixty years, and it features some of the greatest names in classical music such as Chopin, Schubert, Beethoven, Liszt, and Debussy.

Masterful piano renditions of true classics, this collection pays great homage to the important composers to the musical world as Condon was growing up. A proud jewel from Australian’s musical history, this catalogue is extensive and each piece is portrayed more lovingly and skillfully than the last.

James Stewart of Sweet Peach Records has redistributed this precious catalogue through us, ensuring this beautiful music will never be lost to time. Now digitally remastered and available on Spotify and all other major online music retailers, you can take the glory days of musical achievement with you anywhere, in the crispest high definition quality possible.

Jimmy Stewart’s old record label firmly entrenched itself in musical history with their releases, and this one is no different! The catalogue of Sweet Peach is definitely filled with all sorts of gems, but the Condon Collection is entirely in a league of its own – a bit hard to compete with Beethoven, after all!

These reproductions show a kind of love and care that drove Condon – he was truly moved by these classics to capture them so. In the same way, Jimmy Stewart and Sweet Peach felt this passion and wanted to keep it alive, hence these remasters and redistributions.

To any music historian readers, the story of Denis Condon is one they may be familiar with, and one that will resonate all the more as you hear those emotions captured so delicately in this beautiful music.

Even still, the Condon Collection, vast and passionate as it may be, remains but a taste of the whole experience waiting for you within Sweet Peach’s entire catalogue. If you’re still curious about the extent of Sweet Peach’s impact on the music world, check out their discography and the full documentation of their story below which we used excerpts from! And of course, their shiny new website.

The legacy of Jimmy Stewart and the rest of the crew from Sweet Peach is still alive and well, much to our delight. Sweet Peach Records are digitally distributed by Blue Pie Records for the world, and is protected/has its rights managed by Ordior. We are honoured to be responsible for the distribution of such a prestigious label and catalogue, and this teamwork is a testament of our appreciation for this little slice of Aussie musical history… and classical music history at large.

And if you ever wanted to investigate that slice any further, there’s no better trivia to start with than the story of Jim Stewart…

The story of this catalogue does Australian musicians proud. Long live Condon and the classical artists he tributed!
