As we approach the halfway stage in this year's BBC Promenade Concerts - the world's greatest classical music festival - we take the opportunity to highlight some of the major artists and orchestras appearing in the remaining weeks of the festival, who have recorded either for Naxos or for one of its affiliated labels.

The full list of these soloists, orchestras and conductors is too long to give a complete account of their upcoming performances. What follows is a selection of artists who feature on six of our labels, together with details of their upcoming Proms appearances, a link to their discographies and the labels' catalogues, and audio extracts that demonstrate why these exciting artists are in such demand.
