Alfred Joins Forces With Naxos for New Multi-Tier Distribution Agreement

LOS ANGELES, CA and FRANKLIN, TN--(Marketwire - November 16, 2010) - Alfred Music Publishing (http://alfred.com), the leader in educational music publishing since 1922, is proud to partner with Naxos (http://www.naxos.com), the world's leading classical music label, on a comprehensive multi-tier distribution agreement to include physical and digital distribution as well as future licensing and publishing projects.

Offering recordings adored by classical music specialists and beginners alike since 1987, the Naxos catalog includes more than 6,000 recordings, from classical favorites to new music. Now Naxos' extensive popular catalog of CDs and DVDs -- including attractive lifestyle titles such as Perfect Wedding, Music for Meditation, and the Chill With Series -- will be available throughout North American print music and M.I. channels, in most cases for the very first time.

In addition to the physical and digital distribution, the companies will partner to offer educational institutions Alfred's audio recordings for classroom use through the Naxos Music Library. "Alfred has been very fortunate to work with some of the world's best composers and has packaged the recordings of these fine works within CDs available through our hard goods," commented Bob Durkee, Alfred's Director of Distribution. "The decision to make these recordings available digitally was an ideal next step in our goal to do whatever possible to help music education, and Naxos is the perfect partner to help us achieve that step."
