Mercury Classics

Launched in April 2012 by Universal Music, Mercury Classics aims to identify and work with strong creative individuals who bring a distinctive and fresh perspective to classical music, whether they are young artists approaching the genre in a new way, or established musicians, outside the field, curious about exploring the genre. Since the separation of Island Records, Motown, Mercury Records, and Def Jam Recordings combining the Island Def Jam Music Group, Mercury Records has been placed under Island Records, although its back catalogue is still owned by The Island Def Jam Music Group.
