How to Use the Naxos App

The Naxos apps are great for streaming pieces off-line and listening on the go. There are four apps, one for each database: Naxos Music, Naxos Music Library: Jazz, Naxos Music Library: World, and Naxos Spoken Word Library. However, if you plan to use "advanced search" or read liner notes, the desktop version is recommended.

  • Go to databases and search for Naxos. Choose the Naxos database that is most relevant to your interests.
