Best websites for classical music

These sites feature classical music, but several also include jazz, pop, and world music.

Pristineclassical.com is a music site on which “roughly 300” classical titles can be downloaded, listened to, or bought on CD. Good annotation and audio previews accompany the selections, which include early blues and jazz.

Metplayer.org features a catalogue of audio and video recordings from performances at the Metropolitan Opera. All are available at $14.99 per month after a seven-day free trial.

Operadepot.com has a few hundred titles from almost “everywhere but the Met.” The recordings can either be downloaded as MP3s or, for a little more, bought on CD. Collectors can swap recordings with other aficionados on the site, which also offers periodic free downloads.

Naxosmusiclibrary.com’s “cyberlibrary” of nearly 32,000 recordings can be listened to online for a fee of $25 per month. The mostly classical catalogue also contains some pop, folk, jazz, and world music.
