Holiday Shopping with Naxos
There's something for everyone at Naxos.com

Worried that the music might not fit?  With Naxos.com, you can try it on for size before you take it home.  For the hopeless romantic on your gift list, try Amy Beach’s Piano Concerto, a sweeping number for those with traditional tastes. Those with more exotic likings will savour the oriental hues of Puccini’s Turandot.




Perhaps slip into something choral. Pärt’s Passio and Rutter’s Requiem are a pair sure to suit most musical complexions. For the jazz enthusiast who is a closet classical fan, Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms matched with music from On the Town and On the Waterfront makes a winning combination. The brassy shades of West Side Story provide a suitable gift for the more rugged type.


Need to brush up on the classics of literature?  Naxos Audiobooks has filled the virtual shelves of  Naxos.com with their extensive selection of books read by leading actors and enhanced with beautiful classical music. A stunning interpretation of King Lear with Kenneth Branagh and Paul Scofield make an excellent gift for the Shakespeare enthusiast on your list. Younger listeners might enjoy King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, read by actor Sean Bean (The Fellowship of the Rings), or Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women.


Especially for music librarians, we offer a chance to test drive the new Naxos Music Library, one of the sleekest and most complete ways to navigate Naxos recordings on the web.  Naxos has now created the world’s most comprehensive online music library, consisting of all 75,000 tracks in the Naxos and Marco Polo catalogues This service has been specially created for university and school music departments and libraries, and will soon be available on an annual subscription basis that will allow for multiple concurrent usage.  To receive a trial password, please send your institution details to David Robson (drobson@selectmusic.co.uk).


For those last-minute, emergency gifts, you’ll need something that cannot miss.  The infectious rhythm of Naxos World’s Bhangra Beatz will prove irresistible to club-going folk, and perennial favourite Peter and the Wolf becomes a must-have when narrated by Dame Edna. If an audiophile is on your gift list, then you simply must pick up Prokofiev’s Alexander Nevsky on DVD-Audio.




Don't forget to decorate your home with the sounds of the holidays.  The Milken Archive’s “A Hanukka Celebration” (available only in North America) combines the old and the new for a remarkable celebration of faith, and “The Naxos Book of Carols”, with sheet music available from www.naxoscarols.com, is a perfect sing-along gift for families.




Finally, with the stressful hustle and bustle of the stores, you’ll definitely need a way to unwind. Dip into the refreshing “Chill with” series and relax with Rachmaninoff, Satie, Vivaldi, and Mozart. U.S. customers, who will have to wait for January to experience the Naxos “Chill with” series, might prefer the cozy warmth of “The Spanish Guitar,” a 2-CD set with beautiful classics played by some of today’s most talented guitarists.




Above all, we hope that all of our Naxos.com visitors, no matter where they live or how they celebrate, have a wonderful December full of music and joy.
