Ever dreamed of a music streaming service tailored exclusively for classical music aficionados? Grown out of Naxos’ digital catalogues (Naxos provided music streaming services long before it was cool) ClassicsOnline combines high-quality audio streaming, a carefully curated catalogue and sophisticated search functions designed to give classical music fans the best experience possible. ClassicsOnline has a continually expanding catalogue of music from labels including Naxos, Sony, Chandos, BIS, Harmonia Mundi and more. Users can search for recordings by label, or even by composer’s country of origin. Listeners can search for music from the same country and era as any given composer, or navigate pieces that feature a particular instrument. “Our search engine is constructed by classical music experts, who understand that classical music requires more than just the name of a band or album name,” explains ClassicsOnline’s General Manager Steven Singer. “This capability sets our platform apart. Classical music listeners
can find what they want, or discover new music without needing to know the complete information in advance.” These sophisticated search functions are made possible by a curatorial team of trained musicologists, who classify recordings’ metadata. “ClassicsOnline is proof of our commitment to making a wide range of classical music available in state-of-the-art sound with a sophisticated search capability utilising the vast data base of our various classical music services,” said Naxos founder Klaus Heymann.
