John Nuechterlein, president and CEO of the American Composers Forum, announced today that the Forum has finalized an agreement with Nashville-based Naxos of America to distribute innova Recordings. Under the terms of the agreement, Naxos will be responsible for both physical and digital distribution of recordings on the label, as well as representing the entire catalog in its streaming library service starting in October 2009. Physical distribution will begin on January 1, 2010, with digital distribution beginning on March 1, 2010. According to Nuechterlein, “The agreement with Naxos demonstrates that innova Recordings has clearly become a significant label for new work. We are providing a critical link for composers by helping them distribute directly to their audience in the widest possible ways.”
