Rock Symphony was born in October 1997 as a cultural production company specialized in progressive rock and related genres such as electronic, hard rock and progmetal. We could say that its prehistory lies in the pages of the "Enciclopédia do Rock Progressivo", a book published in 1995 by journalist Leonardo Nahoum, founder and president of the label. Trying to create a greater diversity in the Brazilian and (why not?) global musical scene, our main activity is the release of CDs by contemporary and well-known artists working within the boundaries of a musical genre which has among its ranks names like Pink Floyd, Genesis, Yes, Renaissance, O Terço and Sagrado Coração da Terra.

Rock Symphony's cast presents a good balance between Brazilian active artists (the band Tempus Fugit is an excellent example) and obscure but incredibly inpressive foreign groups (such as Yugoslavian setenties combo Tako). On top of that, Rock Symphony also acts in the showbusiness, producing the Rio ArtRock Festival, one of the biggest Latin American events dedicated to progressive rock, since 1996 bringing true legends to the Brazilian stages. We also produced both Flower Kings tours in our country (1998 and 2000) and the long-awaited first appearance by English band Camel (5 memorable concerts in 4 different cities).
