We have recently received a lot of new CDs of classical, jazz and other music. We thank you for thinking of us, however, please let me point out a few important things that we require before we can include music on our site.

Recordings you send should be:
1. good-quality (that means excellent quality) recordings;
2. not live recordings (as live recordings are often noisy or contain wrong notes...);
3. (preferably) recordings with coherent programming

If your recording and performance are to our interest we will then contact you and send you a free and non-exclusive agreement to sign. You will have no fees - never at any moment - to enroll at

For any queries, contact me here, but please note above all that we are searching for classical and countemporary music or jazz artists (cross over may be also evaluated).

To conclude you must not have signed any exclusive agreement with any record label or any kind of authors' society. OnClassical has no relationship with any of these.

or, if you wish request us to see a copy of our agreement.

The address where you may send the recordings (only in .wav original format - not derived from mp3s or compressed files) is:

ONCLASSICAL by A.Simonetto
c/o Via Ca'Petofi 13
36022 Cassola, Vicenza

Many thanks!

Don Kosaken Chor is a male folk ensemble from the cold Russia. For more than 50 years the choir travelled throughout the world with Sergej Jaroff enjoying incredible success. At the time, the group recorded with no less than Deutsche Grammophone (I've been able to buy such an LP at an antiques market in Piazzola sul Brenta [near Padua]). This morning I found this 1930 documentary at YouTube...

Since 1991 the group is conducted by Wanja Hlibka, who at the time was one of its soloists (and in fact, all the members of the Don Kosaken Chor are amongst the greatest solosists that Russia has ever provided).

I have personally been to four of their concerts and I must admit I was extremely impressed. It was like standing before monuments, and the vibration was such that the dynamics were at the limits of tolerance (90 db), with intervals that cover extensions of over 4 and a half octaves (this is absolutely great on a sole male choir!), the organ sounds produced soft tones alternated with folkloristic effects so typical of Russia.

Don Kosaken Chor Wanja Hlibka

This post just to tell you that the only CD they ever recorded (as a dedicated recording not a live concert) will be soon available at I am simply honoured to publish this group and I hope it will be the first of a series of famous vocal groups. A big thank you goes to the manager of the Kosaken Chor, Birgit Sziele, who has followed and supported since 2003!

We have just released a new virtuoso artist: Pierre Feraux is a young virtuoso pianist who studied at the Royal Conservatory of Mons. He also graduated with top marks from the Queen Elizabeth College of Music (Waterloo, Belgium).

OnClassical's new featured artist: Pierre Feraux

Pierre has received many other prizes and awards in piano competitions: he has won the Andrée Charlier Piano Competition, the National Pro Civitate Competition, the Excellentia Piano Competition, and the J. Musiciens Contest.

In the album released at he performs the Liszt Sonata in b minor - for which he received a Special Award at the Royal College of Music from which he recently graduated. He then proposes Haydn's Sonata... and the Brahms' Variations op. 24. The pathos demonstrated leaves no space for doubts or technical imprecision: Feraux is a mature artist able to expess his musical thought without a glimpse of uncertainty.

Other new release: our first album compilation.

The OnClassical compilation

This is a collection of the best recordings for each instrument already present on It's a good start to begin listening to our catalogue and quality.
