BIS Records is a record label founded in 1973 by Robert von Bahr. It is located in Åkersberga, Sweden.

BIS focuses on classical music, both contemporary and early, especially works that are not already well represented by existing recordings.

The company has recorded the complete works of Sibelius. Other composers of the Nordic countries and Balticum are also well represented in their catalogue, including Kalevi Aho, Christian Lindberg, Jón Leifs, Geirr Tveitt and James MacMillan.

Other notable BIS projects include the Bach Cantatas by the Bach Collegium Japan under Masaaki Suzuki, and the complete piano music of Edvard Grieg by pianist Eva Knardahl.

More recently, BIS has completed a 5 year Beethoven symphony cycle with Finnish born conductor Osmo Vänskä and the Minnesota Orchestra. The cycle features 5.0 Surround Sound as well as being a Super Audio CD.

Universally acknowledged by audiophiles and musicians, BIS is praised for the sound quality of its recordings.
