Nonclassical is a unique record label, releasing classical music in an unexpected and refreshing way, including genre-busting Remixes along-side original contemporary classical works. Featuring a new generation of performers, composers and promoters who are starting to emerge from the world of contemporary classical music, Nonclassical also hosts a regular series of events, which redefine the rules of classical music - determined that classical music is no longer solely aired within the constraints of the concert hall. This night is part of rediscovering of its relevance, and takes inspiration from baroque, techno, grime, classical, avante garde; presenting it informal & relevant situations.
Be part of a new approach to classical music.
