Denis Kozhukhin
Haydn; Piano Sonatas

After his acclaimed debut disc of Prokofiev Sonatas 6-8, Denis Kozhukhin turns to a favourite composer of his - Haydn. He has selected sonatas 23, 24, 32 & 49 - delightfully witty, graceful and sometimes surprisingly dramatic music that looks forward to the young Beethoven - Haydn's future pupil. Release September 2014

Leonard Elschenbroich, Netherlands Philharmonic, A
Kabalevsky & Prokofiev

Elschenbroich's debut on ONYX of sonatas by Rachmaninov and Shostakovich received critical acclaim around the world and made the Top 10 UK Chart for several weeks. Here he can be heard in Kabalevsky's impressive 2nd Cello Concerto, and Prokofiev's Cello Sonata with shorter works by both composers for cello and piano. Release September 2014

Bach; Partitas & Sonatas for solo violin

For her second ONYX recording, Midori turns to arguably the greatest music in the violin repertoire - J.S Bach's Partitas & Sonatas for solo violin. For release in September 2014 on 2CDs

Borusan Istanbul Philharmonic Orchestra, Sascha Go
Rimsky-Korsakov, Balakirev, Ippolitov-Ivanov, Erki

The remarkable BIPO (making their UK debut at the 2014 BBC Proms) and Sascha Goetzel continue their series of spectacular ONYX recordings with Rimsky's masterpiece Sheherazade, Balakirev's Islamey, Two Caucasian Sketches by Ippolitov-Ivanov and Erkin's sparkling Kocekce make up a musical tour of the Orient and Middle East - bursting with local colour and atmosphere! Released July 2014

Augustin Dumay & Louis Lortie
Brahms The Three Violin Sonatas

Dumay and Lortie return to the studio for their second ONYX recital CD. The first was the highly praised disc of sonatas by Franck & Strauss. The 3 Brahms violin sonatas with the 10 by Beethoven form the backbone of the 19th century sonata repertoire for these instruments. iI would like the 3rd movement to accompany me to the hereafter' said Clara Schumann of the 1st sonata. The 3rd sonata is Brahms at his most impressive, forward looking, passionate and turbulent with a wonderful slow movement. It is perhaps the ultimate example in the long tradition of 'Grand Sonatas' of the 19th century .

Kirill Karabits, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra
Prokofiev Symphonies 1&2 , Sinfonietta, Autumn Ske

The first CD in the cycle of all 7 Prokofiev Symphonies from the BSO and Karabits received nothing but praise from the critics - BBC Music magazine and Gramophone Editors choice , Sunday Times and Daily Telegraph CD of the week, 5 stars in the Guardian, and CD of the week on BBC Radio 3s CD Review! So Volume 2 will be eagerly awaited by all. The popular 1st symphony is coupled with the modernist 2nd for contrast. Also on this CD are the early Sinfonietta and Autumn Sketch chart the composers journey towards symphonic maturity and sophistication.
