Absolute Label Services partners with classical artists

Absolute Label Services

Classical artists Carly Paoli, Parker, Jonathan Antoine and Gavin Greenaway have entered into partnerships with Absolute Label Services.

The deals will see Absolute provide services to each of the acts and their respective labels Abiah Records (Carly Paoli), Gateway 12 Records (Parker), Cavendish Records (Antoine) and Tenuto Records (Gavin).

Gavin Greenaway is well-known as the conductor of several major film music scores including The Dark Knight, Gladiator, Interstellar and How To Train Your Dragon. He has a long-standing, close collaborative relationship with film composer, Hans Zimmer as well as working alongside Sir George Martin and Trevor Horn.

Greenaway turned his hand to his own compositions with the release of his eagerly anticipated debut release, Il Falco Bianco, on 20 May.

Mark Dowling, Absolute Label Services director, said: ‘We’re thrilled to be working with such brilliant, young, classical artists. Carly, Parker and Jonathan all represent the next generation of talent in the genre and we’re confident we can help them attract new fans as well as furthering their appeal among the established classical community.

‘Then we’ve got Gavin Greenaway, who is a well-established conductor and composer of the highest calibre. We’re really excited about working with him and helping him to take his career to even greater heights.’

Rising to prominence through Britain’s Got Talent, “teenage Pavarotti” Jonathan Antoine saw his first solo album, Tenore, go to number one in the Classical Charts.

Classically-trained Carly Paoli is one of the world’s most in-demand mezzo sopranos and is working on a debut album with composer Romano Musumarra.

Meanwhile, talented classical pianist Parker released her debut EP at the end of July as well as playing her first ever festival slot at Latitude this year.
