"The aim of NML is to eventually offer access to every work of classical music ever recorded and to become the ultimate resource in the classical music field. In future, users will also be able to view the instrumentation of all orchestral and chamber music works and to access comprehensive analyses of all the most important works.
"Resources offered by NML include synopses of over 700 operas, a pronunciation guide for composer and artist names and a glossary of musical terms. A comprehensive online encyclopedia of classical music is in development." -- Naxos
