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.

THE SUNDAY TIMES Album of the Week - Prokofiev Symphonies Nos.3&7 , BSO, Karabits
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
Kirill Karabits and the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra's Prokofiev Symphony cycle gets off to a flying start with the Daily Telegraph awarding it 5 stars 'Altogether this is a highly auspicious start to what should be a keenly collected series'
BBC Music Magazine praise for Jonathan Biss Beethoven Piano Sonatas Volume III

'Altogether this is one of the most challenging and provocative new recordings of this cycle - and one of the best performed and recorded'

Pablo Ferrandez ONYX debut of Dvorak & Schumann Cello Concertos - 'He's a fine performer, with a warm tone and an impulsive, if refined lyricism that makes him a natural for Schumann's concerto' 4 stars - The Guardian
