Naxos Books Bring Together Words And Music


Highly praised by critics, appreciated by music experts, and popular with an increasing number of music lovers, Naxos Books is a diverse and forward-thinking imprint, which embraces popular, specialist and children’s titles within the world of classical music.

The hallmark of Naxos Books is the groundbreaking fusion of words and music, drawing on the extensive list of Naxos classical recordings to provide a ‘multimedia’ take on traditional book publishing. The majority of its mainstream books, including its flagship series on the lives of composers, have CDs and websites where readers can listen to many hours of relevant music. Its broad scope mirrors the success that Naxos has achieved with its music CDs, from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons to the ‘Naxos’ Quartets of Peter Maxwell Davies.

A CD-ROM comes with it – inserted into the inside hard cover of the book. This introduces you to the sound of some fifty instruments and families of instruments.”
