I don't think Naxos will go under any time soon. They are very active on
downloads, but still releasing about 15 new CDs every month.
Compare the web sites of Naxos and the old "majors" to see the

of what is available. The Naxos site is huge, well organised and kept up
So far as historical reissues are concerned, I think there is a healthy
