What an absolute delight to have access to the Naxos Music Library through my subscription to WASO. Thank you so much.”

- Lesley R. McKay, West Australian Symphony Orchestra

“I cannot praise this classical library too highly, educational, inspirational, and free. What more could you ask. So far this has always been something new and interesting featured on the front page, so I rarely get to look at other sections. Keep up the good work. Thank you again.”

- Terry McGovern, United Kingdom

“I listen to NML daily and hear music I didn't know existed and many different recordings of familiar music. For instance, at this moment I am listening to the recording of Bach's cello suites because I am trying to find the one that suits my taste best so I can buy it and play it always. Aside from that, NML has introduced me to such a lot of fine 21st century music. I could never afford to buy these CDs, nor would I be likely to buy a CD of contemporary music by a composer I have never encountered. NML allows me to hear that music. In this way NML broadens my range of experience. I listen to NML through a subscription taken out by my local library. In the past the library used to CDs but as current budgetary restrictions prevent the library form continuing, the library has opted to subscribe to NML. As a result, people in this relatively isolated place have access to a great representation of the world's best music. So, in short, thank you.”

- James Arthur

- Dr. Alan Freestone, United Kingdom

“Just a quick note to express how much I'm enjoying NML! The depth and breadth of the selections and the sound quality are all outstanding. What makes the product even more exciting for me are the ways NML helps me enjoy and appreciate the music. Having PDF's of the CD booklets provides a huge amount of value by providing insight and background on the composers and performers. Having indices of performers and composers makes discovery and delving deeper a true joy.

Thanks for a great product, and please keep innovating and adding features to allow for the deep exploration and appreciation of music.”

- Tyler Steben

“Thank you for all the pleasure you have given me, and thank you for adding EMI Classics to your labels! I don't even bother with my CDs any more. I just visit NML! Your other labels are terrific, too... but I just noticed EMI and let out a scream of pure delight. I can visit many of my old favorites now.

I'm also thrilled that you've rescued the Vox catalog. And Northern Flowers is a big treat. I still purchase CDs, but I will NEVER want to be without NML.

I could go on and on, but you probably know it all! Thank you, thank you.”

- Mimi Ezust

“This is just remarkable. I had no idea this was coming as I have an enormous opera and "classical collection" on every known and hundreds of not well known composers.

I enjoyed "Allein" from the Mitropoulos, 1950 Elektra to Philip Glass's Heroes, Marin Alsop just to test how it all works. It's so simple. What a revelation! This is remarkable!

Many, many thanks.”

- Peter De Vita, Toronto, Canada

“Thank you so much for the access to this amazing collection! Thumbs up and five stars.”

- Penny Siganou

“I would like to thank Naxos for the great Miklos Rozsa cd collection which you have in your present cataloque. I have bought all your recordings of this composer and are the best I have in my collection of his concert works, better then the KOCH in both performance and interpretation.The recordings also show off my Bang and Olufsen system.

I hope that you might in the future be tempted to record Dr Rozsa's String Quartet's 1-2.

Thank you NAXOS for a great collection and service.”

“Over the last decade or so, Naxos CDs have guided me to musical treasures I otherwise would almost certainly never have experienced. NML takes that to a whole new level. NML is a stunning offering; one delight after another. And it’s not just the music but the information. I just noticed, for instance, how NML allows you to view a composer’s works chronologically. I am overwhelmed. Naxos, you have much, much to be proud of. A magnificent accomplishment. Thank you.”

- William Wood, Eden Prairie, Minnesota, United States
