Notes & Reviews:

Ukranian-born violinist Maxim Rysanov is a rising star of the classical music scene, recently named a BBC Young Generation Artist of 2007-9. Now based in London, he makes his Onyx debut performing two stunning new works for viola and choir: 'Styx' (1999) by Giya Kancheli and the first recording of 'The Myrrh-Bearer' (1993) by John Tavener. Recorded at Riga's amazing Dome Cathedral - the largest medieval church in the Baltic region - this music of deep spirituality and yearning makes an immediate emotional impact.
