Apple Music Classical is launching as its own app this month
Apple Music already has a selection of classical music for those who still listen to the tunes of Beethoven or Bach, but the app offers little for all music lovers participate in any new composition in the long-form classic style. Well, after about two years of work, Apple finally has the answer for classic fans, and it comes in the form of a full standalone app.
On Thursday, Apple presented the new Apple Music Classical application can be pre-ordered. The app advertises that it’s free as long as you subscribe to Apple Music. Thousands of songs must be spatially soundable, and all music is ad-free. The slRelease date is March 28th and requires iOS 15.4 or later. An Android version is also “coming soon”. TechCrunch.
Apple claims this new app includes 5 million tracks from composers new and old, with up to 192kHz 24-bit high-resolution audio, which is higher than what you’d get from just listening to old Bach symphonies on YouTube.. The application will also include a composer biography and a description of some of the pieces. The search function is specially designed for classical compositions, such as when searching for Beethoven 5 Symphony No. 5 in C minor obsession 5. piano competition. The music streaming app also reportedly features curated playlists and “thousands of exclusive albums.”
Rumors have been circulating for a long time Apple tried to include some classical music for musical application. It was rumored to be 2022, but the year came and went without a new app. Finally, the iOS 16.4 Beta 2 code release in February showed that “Apple Music Classical” finally comes off the pike.
in 2021 Apple has acquired Primephonic’s classical streaming service. The Amsterdam-based app startup was quite unique for its time. Instead of paying artists based on how many times the track was played, he compensated them based on how long the user streamed the song PCMag. This is probably wisegiven how long a single classical track can last.
AG/O Media may receive a commission
It’s unclear how much of Primephonic’s DNA remains in Apple’s new app. Although the older music streaming service had playlists based on themes such as “storms” or “forest,” also based them on instrumentals. Primephonic also told PCMag that it will manually import music metadata. When the company put its application online two years ago, the developers wrote that “[as a small startup,] we cannot reach the majority of global classical music listeners, especially those who listen to many other genres of music as well.” On March 28, we will find out if the developers made the right call.
