DR. ANDREAS VON IMHOFF (born 1948) studied musicology, theatre and art history, concluding with a doctoral thesis on Bernd Alois Zimmermann’s works for piano.

After freelancing for EMI during his studies, he then worked for 8 years in classical music marketing and distribution for EMI Germany before he was called into EMI's headquarter as first classical Marketing Manager for EMI Classics worldwide. He returned to Germany in 1991.

Von Imhoff worked for EMI for a total of 27 years in different posts in Germany and abroad. Apart from specializing in classical music, he also worked in international marketing, in the European logistics group and in administration. His last job there was in “non-traditional business”, and from 1998 to 2003 he directed EMI Germany’s classical music department.

In 2004 Andreas von Imhoff founded his own firm “Avi Service for music”, focussing on providing services for classical musicians and their labels. In partnership with the various distribution partners worldwide, he now oversees the specialized distributor JA KLA, offering a series of jazz and classical labels for the worldwide markets.

Since April 2005 Andreas von Imhoff has been releasing hand-selected productions on his own classical music label “CAvi music”, with a special emphasis on chamber music productions and on young talents.

In 2009 he started the label SoloVoce (www.solovoce.com) for operatic projects and in 2012 the sublabel CAvi-Musica-Autentica, which ensembles performances based on period instruments.
