The Story of Naxos: The Extraordinary Story of the Independent Record Label That Changed Classical Recording Forever
By Nicolas Soames
This book tells the fascinating story of how a budget classical record label became a leading provider of classical music, and the man behind its success. Founded in Hong Kong in 1987 by Klaus Heymann, a German businessman who loved classical music, it swiftly gained worldwide reputation for reliable new digital recordings of the classics at a remarkably low price. It soon expanded into opera, early music, contemporary music, and specialist repertoire, and became appreciated by specialist collectors as well as the general music lover.
