Recordings are the way we listen to music, unless we attend a live performance. There are many different kinds of recordings, with many accessible through the Library.
Naxos Music Library is a database of streamed recordings. The content is primarily classical, although some jazz is also included. You can search the database by composer, work and label; keyword search; or an advanced search with up to 10 combined search criteria. Recordings may not be copied or downloaded.
The database includes a Playlist tab, where you can create your own list (on your personal computer) or access playlists that faculty have made for courses. If you want to use the free mobile app, first click on the Playlist tab, then click on Sign-Up to create a playlist account. Download the app and enter your playlist user name and password.
Search for Recordings
You can also search for recordings using the URSUS Catalog. Use the Advanced search to search by Author (composer or performer name) and by the Material Type "Sound, Music".
