The Naxos Workman Web Site provides an exciting interactive aural component
to this indispensable 992-page guide to classical music for the average
music listener by Libbey, a former New York Times music critic and author of
five books. The music provided by Naxos helps to bring Libbey’s engaging
prose to life.
The Naxos Workman Web Site further demonstrates that Naxos is truly what
the Los Angeles Times has called an “industry leader” in the field of digital
music distribution. Naxos is a significant classical music presence
on all the major digital service providers and also offers the Naxos Music
streaming service to almost 800 institutional subscribers worldwide.
Since September 2005, Naxos has been offering an ongoing series
of podcasts, free 20-minute mini-documentaries available on www.Naxos.com
