“The must-have boutique label.” The Independent on Sunday
Onyx is an artist-led recording label with a clear principal aim: to record classical artists who are already internationally well-known but who wish to take control of their own recording projects. Onyx’s relationship with its artists is truly collaborative and is designed to enable them to choose exactly how much ownership, control and involvement in their projects they want.
Artists who currently appear on the label include James Ehnes, Joseph Moog, Viktoria Mullova, the Borodin Quartet, Shai Wosner, the Nash Ensemble, Nikolai Lugansky, the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, Christine Schäfer, Christianne Stotijn, and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, whose recording of Tchaikovsky’s Symphonies 1, 2 & 5 recently won Recording of the Year at the 2017 BBC Music Magazine Awards.
Albion Media works with Onyx to ensure that all releases on the label obtain a high level of coverage across the media, frequently securing widespread ‘Album of the Week’ plaudits, award nominations and chart success.
