Naxos Founder Klaus Heymann on BBC Radio 4’s Front Row
May 11, 2012
In 1987, German businessman Klaus Heymann launched Naxos in Hong Kong bringing change in the price structure of classical music and sparking cultural prejudice along the way. Critics sniffed at an independent label pitting itself among giant record labels. Now celebrating its 25th year, Naxos keeps itself afloat, indeed thrives, in a global trend of declining CD sale in classical music. Klaus Heymann sits with BBC Radio 4’s Front Row to share his business formula and strategic outlook for Naxos and the classical music industry. Listen to the interview (subject to availability)
