Naxos Music Library: in the library and on your phone

When it comes to researching music, nothing beats listening to the real thing. Whether you’re looking for western classical music, jazz recordings, folk music, or ethnographic recordings, NYU Libraries has several streaming audio databases to help you find high-quality sound recordings from world-class performers, along with detailed liner notes that you might not find through services such as Youtube or Youku.

Naxos Music Library (with an emphasis on Western classical music and selections of world music and folk recordings) and Naxos Jazz Music Library are rich resources for sound recordings that you can stream directly from your computer.

Whether you are listening for research or for pleasure, Naxos has a wealth of recordings that you can browse by genre, performer, or keyword. You can also create playlists of albums you need to come back to.
