Focus and attention – RSK Classical is a dedicated division focussed purely on marketing, promoting and selling the releases from RSK”s enviable roster of classical labels – long-term label partners include Channel Classics, Brilliant Classics. Linn Records, Supraphon, Tadlow Music, NMC, Pentatone, Delphain and the Outhere family of labels including Aeon, Alpha, Fuga Libera, Phi, Ramee, Ricercar,  and Zig-Zag Territoires. Your artists are our artists – RSK is proud to work with some of the finest artists on the classical scene today – artists of the calibre of Rachel Podger, Ingrid Fliter, Pavel Haas Quartet, Ivan Fischer, John Butt, Robin Ticciati, The Dunedin Consort, Phantasm, Jos van Immerseel, Philip Herreweghe and Collegium Vocale, Lionel Meunier and Vox Luminis, the Smetana Trio. At the heart of RSK Classical is the Classical Club, a dealership comprising the UK’s classical independent shops, mail-order and online retailers. Club members help to support RSK’s monthly priority releases – this guarantees plenty of coverage with these key stores. In return club members receive extra support with in store promotion material like store play CDs, leaflets and posters. RSK Classical has close relations with Amazon, HMV and the other national accounts, plus the increasingly important indie online accounts like Presto, MDT & Europadisc.

 RSK Classical’s in-house publicity department has over 10 years of proven results,. We offer dedicated public relations packages for the UK press and media. Alongside those all important reviews we work hard to increase label and artist profiles in the UK through editorial coverage, interviews, and airplay on Classic FM and the BBC.  Because we control much of the publicity in-house we can inform retail instantly when any reviews are printed – which means our labels don”t lose sales opportunities. RSK artists have won a dozen Gramophone awards in the past 6 years, and for the past 2 years our artists have won the Gramophone Recording of the Year Award for the past two years running. We are increasingly exploring new media in order to further publicise our artists and labels, with our in-house video team making clips for labels, and also in some instances for  retailers. One of our most unexpected success was with the video below for the NMC release of Harrison Birtwistle’s Shadow of Night, which went on to win the Gramophone and BBC Music Magazine contemporary awards.
