Apple releases a new music app. Point. First thought: who else has itchy earlobes? Isn’t the much-vaunted market (over)saturated with Spotify, Deezer, Shazam – and whatever they’re called?

Before we prejudge here: There is an audience that is curious about the new Apple app Apple Music Classical guaranteed to be happy. The name says it all: classic fans rejoice!

Could it be Apple Music Classic?

On the corresponding Reddit forum, the message about the app is screeching like a crescendo!

Why the enthusiasm? From conversations on Reddit, we’ve learned that classical music is pretty much the same as covers in popular music – just a touch saltier.

Comparison with classic nuples: In popular music, a specific track is usually associated with a specific artist or band (e.g Sonne train Rammstein).

On the other hand, in classical music it goes without saying that the music is associated with different performers (in our pop example: the Sonne– Interpretation by Schlager singers Heino. Yes, it really is!).

This is what the classical music connoisseur says: The Reddit user DrHeywoodRFloyd clearly summarizes the problem when he writes:

Even if the same artist interprets the same piece, it can be perceived very differently. An example: Johann Sebastian Bach’s Goldberg Variations. Pianist Glenn Gould has two recordings of Variations; in one shot Gould is still young and wild, in the second shot Gould is an older man. The two recordings sound completely different.

Added value for classic fans

The Reddit user, on the other hand, summarizes the effort it took to find the right piece for Beethoven fans. eggnogegggnogeggnog along with a wink (background information: Sibelius II the Finnish composer’s symphony Jean Sibelius):

Features of the application: The app contains more than 5 million pieces of classical music—hundreds of curated playlists, thousands of exclusive albums, and biographical background information on composers and artists, according to techcrunch.com.

Probably one of the most popular music streaming apps is Ironic Drummer! – Spotify! But even the green giant needs to improve to stay competitive.

Apple grabs Primephonic: Before the new app could be pre-ordered, Apple pulled off a coup by acquiring Primephonic.

With the upcoming release of Apple Music Classic, Apple is building on – and improving upon – the previous Primephonics offering; they include: improved search functions obsession detailed display of music-related metadata.

What is the audience like? Primephonic was mainly visited by older users. Most of the audience is Generation 50 Plus, with college degrees in their pockets and higher earners. How predictable, right?

Anyway: The app is now available for pre-order.

Are you a fan of classical music – or does classical music end with the film scores of Johnny Williams, Hansi Zimmer and Ennio Morricone? If you want to hear how cool classical music is, listen to George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue.” It doesn’t matter: Define your personal taste in music in our comments!
