Creator: Varèse Sarabande
The company logo, informally known as "The Bug".
Varèse Sarabande was founded in 1977 as the result of a merger between the small classical labels Varèse International and Sarabande Records as a label to distribute reissues of classical albums from companies such as Decca and JVC. Eventually, they branched into jazz music, Broadway recordings and, most notably, film scores. In 1988, Varèse Sarabande began a partnership with MCA, and today it has released over 1,100 film scores and cast recordings. Currently headed by Robert Townson, the company not only releases work from legends such as John Williams, Jerry Goldsmith and Bernard Herrmann, but also supports newer composers such as Alexandre Desplat, Brian Tyler and Marco Beltrami. The label has also released two CD compilations of theme music from North American game shows.

The company's success has led to competitors (and often Friendly Rivals) such as Intrada Records, La-La Land Records, Kritzerland and Perseverance Records. In a way, Varèse Sarabande's success showed that there was a market for film scores and the company has benefited strongly.

The company also operates Varèse Vintage, a sublabel for pop music reissues and compilations.

The listing below only includes albums that had their initial release on the label (with the exception of Spartacus in the Alex North folder). Titles with asterisks have also been released by the label in expanded form.
