Of all the new additions to our collections that we added over the break, perhaps the most exciting is the Database of American Recorded Music (DRAM) streaming audio database.
The backbone of the 3,700 album collection is the output of legendary labels, New World Records and Composers Recordings, Inc, making it the single best streaming source for 20th century and contemporary American classical music. It also incorporates twenty-eight other labels and collections as well, including Albany Records, the Dartmouth Archive of Jon Appleton’s works, and the Ben Hall Gospel Archive.
Though Naxos Music Library is a fantastic resource, finding contemporary composers and works is sometimes spotty. The DRAM database fills in the gaps with its incredible collection of rare and important recordings.
And if you haven’t yet, be sure to check out the full range of our streaming audio and video resources.
