With more than 1,000,000 tracks of music and tools for music education, Naxos Music Library is available for institutional and professional subscriptions and is currently being enjoyed by over 1200 universities, performing arts organizations, and public libraries in the North America.
Since 2001, new recordings have been produced under the Warner Classics label as well as continuing the APEX budget reissue series which includes recordings from both the Teldec & Erato labels.
Teldec Classics was founded in Hamburg, Germany in 1950 as a co-operation between Telefunken and Decca Records. Over its long history the label has been home to many great artists and its catalog includes the pioneering early music label Das Alte Werk. The Erato Disques label was founded in Paris, France in 1953 by Philippe Loury, originally as Éditions Musicales Costallat, when there were very few long-playing Renaissance and Baroque music recordings to be found. This was the area in which Erato first made its mark and which subsequently established its fine and enduring reputation under the guidance of Michel Garcin. Over the years a rich catalogue has emerged across all Classical repertoire areas from many of the finest artists of the day.
