highly readable ... I enjoyed reading this densely packed, enlightening book -- Graham Silcock Classical Recordings Quarterly Nicolas Soames throws himself into telling the story of how the music loving Heymann, a tennis coach-turned businessman built his recording empire and took it to the world -- Colin Anderson Time Out endlessly informative book... which embraces everything everyone has wondered about this unique company. An educational read, with great stories Herald


In 1987, a budget classical record label was started in Hong Kong by Klaus Heymann, a German businessman who loved classical music. Swiftly, it gained a world wide reputation for reliable new digital recordings of the classics at a remarkably low price. Despite opposition from the classical record establishment, it grew at a remarkable pace, and soon expanded into opera, early music, contemporary music and specialist repertoire so that it became appreciated by specialist collectors as well as the general music lover. It is now the leading provider of classical music and as an innovator in digital delivery. At the heart of Naxos is one man: Klaus Heymann. The combination of his broad knowledge of classical music and his acute business acumen has enabled him to build the most varied classical music label in the world, but also the most effective distribution network to ensure that his recordings are available everywhere. This fascinating story explains how it happened, how a one-time tennis coach in Frankfurt became a classical recording mogul in Hong Kong and how, at the age of 75, he still holds the reins as firmly as ever.

Nicolas Soames: The Story of Naxos. The Extraordinary Story of the Independent Record Label that Changed Classical Recording For Ever. London: Piatkus, 2012. 450 pages.

I have been listening to Naxos CDs since the early 90's, so when I heard about this book I eagerly ordered it in the hope of learning more about the background and the people behind these budget-priced pearls. To be honest, the book has not really fulfilled my expectations.

For one thing, the book, written by an insider (Soames is responsible for Naxos Audio-Books), reads like a book-sized advertisement for Naxos. I suppose that is inevitable in some sense, as Naxos is the subject of the book, but I would have appreciated a more thorough and critical approach to the whole area of budget classical recording. Soames does, in fact, mention a few negative facts, concentrating mainly on the business/commercial side, but he never really comments in any detail on the criticisms of the "Naxos sound" which were, at least in the early years, not without foundation.

The first part of the book is, in a way, a biography of Klaus Heymann (with Takako Nishizaki) and does contain some information I have not come across elsewhere. This part of the book is fairly well written and occasionally contains anecdotes, which are, in my opinion, the "spices" needed to freshen up a story like this.

But the second half of the book seems to get lost in long lists of names, often reading like a literary version of the Naxos Catalogue. Of course, there are some interesting moments, but on the whole, this reads like a list of Naxos achievements.
