The Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra (HK Phil) will become an ambassador of Naxos for Education as part of a joint audience development partnership from the 2022/23 season. Building on the long-standing relationship between the HK Phil and Naxos with many acclaimed recordings, this initiative is launched to support their shared goal of bringing the best classical music to the community – either in a live venue or through through recordings.
With the world’s largest collection and unrivaled range of classical music recordings from nearly 1,000 major and independent labels, Naxos Music Library(NML) offers on-demand and on-the-go streaming services. HK Phil’s recordings, which range from 1980s releases to the recent award-winning Ring Cycle led by music director Jaap van Zweden, are also available on NML. Through the “Keep Calm and Listen On” campaign, local residents are encouraged to enjoy free access to Naxos Music Library through the Hong Kong Public Libraries with a library card or after registering with their Hong Kong ID card.
Additionally, members of the HK Phil’s Young Audience Scheme will have free access to Naxos Music Boxa beautifully curated online resource for children ages 4-14 to explore and discover musical treasures on their own as they can build their knowledge and appetite for classical music before attending HK Phil’s concerts.
Whether you like your fix of live or recorded classical music, keep calm and listen.
