Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra (QPO) and Qatar National Library (QNL) have collaborated to curate playlists that can be streamed for free by all residents of Qatar, with membership at QNL, through the Naxos Music Library’s online database.

The playlists contain a wealth of classical music by international composers, previously performed by QPO. They will feature music for all future QPO concerts with the aim of continuously offering high-quality music recordings from the Naxos Music Library and further enriching the QPO concert experience.

Kurt Meister, Executive Director, QPO, sees the project as a way to extend the orchestra’s reach in fulfilling its mission:

We were founded with the idea of helping the people of Qatar to understand and enjoy music, and that understanding doesn’t come from hearing the music a single time. I’m delighted that, together with QNL, we’ve found another way to get our symphonic performances to a larger audience.’

The Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra, like many orchestras across North America, Europe, Asia, Australia, and Oceania, find Naxos Music Library a great resource to create playlists with albums for their patrons, and make them available to their concert-going audiences. Naxos Music Library is the most comprehensive classical music streaming site in the world, currently offering close to two million tracks of recorded music from 800 labels.
