Some really existing news from our friends at Naxos Music Library: beginning last week, they’ve started adding the catalogs of EMI Classics, Blue Note Records, and Virgin Classics to their already expansive collection of 800,000+ streaming tracks. All 7,200 or so albums should be available by the end of the year.
From their press release:
The legacy of the catalogs of these labels is made apparent by the ensembles, instrumentalists, vocalists and conductors that appear on their decades of recordings, including the likes of Art Blakey, Thelonius Monk, John Coltrane, Charlie Parker, Evgeny Kissin, Sir Simon Rattle, Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, Maria Callas, Wilhelm Furtwängler, the Berliner Philharmoniker, Bill Charlap, Lionel Loueke, Joe Lovano, Jason Moran, Robert Glasper, Ambrose Akinmusire, and countless others. The documentation of great past performers as well as new releases on all three labels will serve as an invaluable educational tool to Naxos Music Library subscribers.
Naxos Music Library can be accessed by members of the AU community either on-campus or off (with your myAladin login).
