NCPA celebrates 90 years of iconic British record company and marks China's role in its renaissance, Chen Nan reports.

This year sees one of the most iconic record labels in the world, Decca Records, turn 90 years old. While celebrating its anniversary worldwide, it also held a special event in China at the National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing on Wednesday.

The British record label, which was established in 1929 and is owned by Universal Music Group, is home to many legendary musicians from a variety of different musical genres, such as the Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Luciano Pavarotti and Andrea Bocelli.

During the event at the NCPA, two Decca Records artists, classical guitarist Milos Karadaglic and saxophonist Jess Gillam, performed with Chinese musicians, including jazz pianist Luo Ning.

The 36-year-old Karadaglic, who joined Decca Records as an artist in 2010, performed with a Chinese string quintet featuring a selection of pieces from his latest album, Sound of Silence, featuring music from the US folk-rock duo Simon &Garfunkel and the iconic British rock band The Beatles.
