West Virginia™ Public Broadcasting Interviews Klaus Heymann

July 31, 2011

By Mona Seghatoleslami (West Virginia™ Public Broadcasting)

Klaus Heymann

Klaus Heymann is founder and president of Naxos, one of the few major companies producing and distributing classical recordings. It’s not by CD sales alone that Naxos exists—they also run the streaming Naxos Music Library, license music to film and TV, and distribute a whole bunch of labels.

I’ve already read several interesting interviews with Heymann, so I was a bit unsure as to what new things I could ask him. I’m also not really a business expert (Unless borrowing one of my dad’s business magazines to read about Spotify counts? Probably not…).

We did find plenty of things to discuss, including the music that has influenced him, different trends in classical music recording industry, and how radio still impacts classical music sales. On a sort of strange whim, I also asked him for his advice for the newspaper industry (one of his first jobs was for a newspaper).
