Decca Label Group

Decca Label Group is Universal Music Group's classical music record label group based in the United States - in addition to new releases, it also manages the vast classical back catalog of UMG (through the various labels that make up the group). The Decca Label Group comprises two divisions: Universal Musical Classical and the American operations of Decca Records. In 2005, Universal Classics Group was named 3[1] on Billboard's Top Classical Crossover Label and 2[2] on Billboard's Top Classical Label.
