Concord Music Acquires Film Score Record Label Varèse Sarabande


Michael Poster, Chair of M&R’s Corporate & Securities Department, was instrumental in helping to close a big deal in the film music business: Concord Music’s recent acquisition of music label Varèse Sarabande from Film Score Records, an investor group led by The Cutting Edge Group (responsible for such well-known soundtracks as WhiplashSicario) and Barings LLC. Mr. Poster’s involvement was detailed in a recent Billboard feature, which also explained that Varèse Sarabande, under Concord Music’s ownership, will continue to release scores from major and independent film studios, network TV studios, digital streaming platforms, and A-list producers. The article also states that the purchase included the Varèse Vintage imprint that specializes in releasing new and re-issued albums by classic pop, jazz and country artists.
