International…
LYRA the Greek record company (lyra@otenet.gr) is the producer of most of the CDs on the left with the exception of the Rhapsodies and Symphonic Poems which have been released by PHORMIGX (phormigx@otenet.gr). Some recordings such as the TRIO have been included in subscription editions available only as part of a collection.

LYRA exports its records  to the major international markets. It does so through general shops ill qualified to sell classical records. It has now also set up an e-shop at www.lyra.gr. In March 2001 it was still in an experimental phase, slow, unfriendly and cumbersome and the categories were confusing. Kalomiris does not appear under “Greek composers” but under “classical” and there is no way to find a complete listing of his recordings. The persistent customer may succeed in purchasing some CDs even if he has to email the company directly (musurgia@lyra.gr).
