Naxos Music Library (NML) offers over 2.73 million tracks of fine classical music recordings from more than a thousand labels with their latest releases. What sets NML apart from other streaming platforms comes down to metadata. Each piece of music comes with a rich set of information, from composers’ biographies to programme notes, instrumentation to publisher’s details, all authored by qualified musicologists. Individual subscribers and authorised users of institution subscribers can create their own playlists on top of having access to playlists created by their teachers and professors for their assignments.

NML is more than just a huge classical music audio library available for streaming. The Resources section inside the library offers many valuable add-ons and study tools available through accessing the web version.

Love Naxos, not the interface

As others have commented, the interface could use improvement, but I love the breadth and selection. A huge plus is that you can (temporarily) download for offline listening, great for walking around or taking in the car, but the big DOWNSIDE to this is that this app logs you out at the drop of a hat. Often I load up an album to listen to when not on wifi, only to find that when I want to listen to those tracks, the app wants me to log in again, which I can’t do without turning the app’s cell data on, which kind of defeats the whole thing. Also, who wants to deal with being in “login purgatory” every time you leave the house? Another annoyance is that, even on iPads, the app only appears in “portrait” orientation, which is super annoying whenever you are using the iPad in a keyboard case that works only in landscape mode. Would love to see a couple changes to the interface, as the music selection is fantastic.

Amazing selection, sub-par interface

For classical music, it’s tough to beat the sheer breadth and depth of the Naxos Music Library. The app’s interface for browsing and listening is not on par with the best commercial apps, but it’s serviceable and has allowed me to find both old favorites and some new treasures in the classical realm. My biggest complaint is the app’s odd fixation on “playlists” as the primary mechanism for saving and organizing music. While the app is excellent at highlighting new and featured albums, I see no obvious way to save albums as albums, apart from moving all the tracks on an album into a playlist and manually naming it something I hope I can recognize in the future. I would love to be able to move a newfound album into a manually defined favorite folder or category in one step—and then view my favorites as the same mini-album covers shown in “new” and “featured”—but I see no way to do that.

Love the resource... but the app needs work

I absolutely love using Naxos! It is such a great resource. However, it is really frustrating that when you pause a piece and change to a different app, the app refreshes and you lose not only where you were in the piece, but also end up back at the home page! I can’t tell you how frustrating it is to have to get back to the Album and then start the whole piece from the beginning. I really hope that Naxos improves the app soon.
