Our Founder

James Ginsburg

President

James Ginsburg founded Cedille Records in 1989 while a law student at the University of Chicago. Four years later, he founded the not-for-profit organization that operates Cedille, now called Cedille Chicago, NFP. Operating as a nonprofit organization, Cedille Records greatly expanded its recording activity to include all genres of classical music while codifying its mission of promoting the work of Chicago’s finest classical musicians. Mr. Ginsburg personally directs Cedille Records’ recording sessions, working closely with artists and engineers to maintain the label’s outstanding reputation for musical and sonic excellence. He has personally produced well over 100 recordings for Cedille and other labels and overseen the production and release of Cedille’s more than 200 albums. Cedille and its recordings have garnered six Grammy Awards and 18 nominations since 2003. Most recently, Ginsburg himself was nominated for Producer of the Year, Classical at the 2020 Grammy Awards. As a result of Mr. Ginsburg’s visionary leadership, the work of more than 180 classical musicians and ensembles from Chicago has been promoted to listeners worldwide and over 300 works have received their world-premiere recordings.
