Welcome to Naim Classical

Our love for Classical music was instrumental in the birth of Naim Label. In 1992, our first compact disc was a cover-mounted give-away with CD Review magazine featuring classical material handpicked by Naim for its crystal-clear sound and inspirational performance - and this was what gave us the idea to make our own recordings! We endeavour to capture exciting performances with the utmost sonic detail.


Featured Artist | Håvard Gimse

Håvard Gimse, one of Scandinavia's leading pianists, returns to Naim Classical with his close friend and collaborator; the talented violist Henning Kraggerud, an equally important name in Norwegian classical virtuosity. The duo tackle Schubert's famed Arpeggione Sonata, composed for piano and guitarre d'amour, complemented by solo piano performances of Franz Schubert's Kinderszenen and Piano Sonata in A Minor.

"Rarely is a pianist so at ease as Håvard Gimse. The mechanics of playing seemed to come naturally, so that he could concentrate on listening to himself." The Independent

"Norwegian pianist Håvard Gimse has proved a sensitive and imaginative advocate of this repertoire and here he is at his distinguished best." BBC Music Magazine

Featured Recording

Grieg, Tippett, Beethoven

Iona Brown & The Norwegian Chamber Orchestra

We've gone back to our True Stereo analogue archives to remaster this absolute gem of a concert in Hi Definition. This emotional NCO concert in Salisbury Cathedral was a rare homecoming for Iona Brown, one of the best conductors of the 20th century.
