    iClassics Brings Classical Music Discovery to the iPad



    There are plenty of apps available for all sorts of different music genres, but the newly announced iClassics from Deutsche Grammophon and Decca Classics is something a little different, as it’s a classical music discovery app that has been developed exclusively for the iPad. Basically, the free app enables the user to explore the recordings from both labels’ vast catalogues, featuring the likes of Pavarotti, Cecilia Bartoli, Daniel Barenboim, Gustavo Dudamel, Leonard Bernstein, Anna Netrebko, Renee Fleming etc) in a new and interactive way.


    The app uses a unique tagging interface that gives the user the ability to search, and mix and match, composers, instruments and even moods, catering to both classical music novices and established fans. The app also includes an interactive composer timeline featuring over 100 composers ranging from the medieval time period through to the present. And, if you want to share your love for the music with your friends on Facebook and Twitter, you can do that too! Free updates will include new recordings and new features as and when they become available. Here are some of the app’s key features:

    • Interactive Tagging Interface
    • Free Streaming Deutsche Grammophon & Decca Classics
    • Radio
    • Streaming Audio Samples
    • Integration directly with the iTunes Music Store
    • Facebook integration
    • Twitter integration
    • Apple AirPlay enabled


    "Classical music is an incredibly rich experience, but the sheer variety of composers, performers and interpretations can be daunting for some," said Max Hole, Chief Operating Officer, Universal Music Group International, who is responsible for UMG's market-leading classical music labels worldwide. "This new, exciting iClassics app simplifies this complex world and guides music lovers to the finest recordings of the masterpieces performed by the world's top performers in an enjoyable, user-friendly way. Our goal is to help more people discover this extraordinary world."

    Sounds like a great idea for people to learn more about classical music, and its getting nothing but five-star ratings in the iTunes store so far!

    When it says that your request can not be completed it means that the app is georestricted and is not available in your country. I found the same thing here in Canada.

    If I remember correctly, Maura is in the UK...
