Discounts for Naxos Music resources

Naxos Music provides a music library and database that can help you with your group's programming and learning needs.

Often known (somewhat frustratingly!) only as 'the cheap CD company', Naxos has long featured music education and fostering a lifelong love of music as two of its core philosophies. Now, the flagship online resource Naxos Music Library is the largest classical streaming site in the world, with over 2.7 million tracks all with full inlay card details, and it continues to grow as an important academic written resource too. There’s no better place for example to research your ensemble’s next programme, to encourage your players and singers to get to know the works you’re performing next, or even to compare recordings to 'get a feel' for a particular work.

One of the newer additions to the Naxos staple is Naxos Works Database. Offering a wealth of detail on duration, instrumentation, publisher and programme introductions for more than 150,000 often underperformed and unrecorded works, and with new works begin added every day, it’s an information gateway for all your concert programmes!
