Apple Music Classical: A Dedicated App for Classical Music Enthusiasts

TechCrunch reports that the new app will provide Apple Music subscribers access to over five million classical music tracks, including new high-quality releases, as well as hundreds of curated playlists, thousands of exclusive albums, and other features like composer bios and deep dives on key works. The app will offer a simpler interface for interacting with classical music specifically, allowing users to search by composer, work, conductor, catalog number, and more.

Additionally, Apple Music Classical will feature digital portraits of famous composers, such as Ludwig van Beethoven, Frédéric Chopin, and Johann Sebastian Bach, using color palettes and artistic references from the relevant classical period. Apple has been working with classical music artists and institutions to offer exclusive content and recordings.

The app will only be available on iOS devices running iOS 15.4 or newer at launch, but a version for Android devices is expected to be released in the near future. The tech giant has created a Twitter account, @appleclassical, for users to stay up to date on the latest news and updates about the app.

This new app comes after Apple’s acquisition of the classical music streaming service Primephonic in 2021. By incorporating Primephonic into Apple Music, Apple aims to offer its subscribers a dedicated platform for classical music with a user-friendly interface, exclusive content, and high-quality recordings.

Overall, Apple Music Classical is an exciting development for classical music enthusiasts who have long been waiting for a dedicated platform for their favorite genre. With its vast library of tracks and exclusive content, the app promises to provide a unique and engaging experience for users.
