Few figures have had such a radical influence on the shape of the recording industry over so many years as founder of Naxos, Klaus Heymann. From shaking up the pricing of CDs, to developing a world-wide distribution business – and along the way releasing many critical acclaimed recordings from artists as diverse as Leonard Slatkin, St John's College Cambridge and Marin Alsop – his impact on classical music has been visionary and long-lasting.

Join us, as Gramophone's Editor-in-Chief James Jolly interviews Klaus Heymann about his extraordinary career and invites him to share his thoughts on where recording is headed now.
