Audio Network owns the rights to their extensive catalogue which covers a full range of music styles from classical to hip hop and from country to rock 'n' roll.  This high-quality music is created by its team of established international composers and recorded by major orchestras and artistes including The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Dame Evelyn Glennie OBE and the late Sir John Dankworth CBE.
