Welcome to the ONYX Classics website. Before you explore the site further, we would like to tell you about some changes we have made to enhance your experience of our website.

First, we have launched our own YouTube channel featuring our artists talking about their recordings. The ONYX YouTube channel will be updated regularly with new video and audio material. Please go to our YouTube channel, sit back, and enjoy James Ehnes and Kirill Karabits talking about Britten's Violin Concerto, and watch the amazing Borusan Istanbul Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor Sascha Goetzel in rehearsal for their new recording.

Secondly, we have improved the way that information on concert and recital dates are made available. Simply click on 'Artists' and select the artist you are interested in, then you will find a link to their website or their management website where you will find up to the minute concert and venue information and much more. For information on publications and broadcasters, PR companies that work with ONYX artists, please visit 'Links'. Please keep an eye on the 'Coming Soon' section for information on our exciting new releases.

Finally, we have added 'Buy Buttons' for all our recordings, so you can select which mail order company you purchase from. You can still buy directly from ONYX, and purchase downloads directly from the site as before.

Enjoy browsing the ONYX Classics website, we hope that you will be a regular visitor.

30 March 2014
'It is bold of Karabits - and ONYX - to launch a promised Prokofiev symphony cycle with the relatively neglected Third and Seventh, rather than the ever - popular 'Classical' (No.1) and the Fifth....The rich, dark 'Russian' sound and nimble virtuosity he gets from the band are vivid successes of his Bournemouth regime' Hugh Canning
