In case you missed anything.

In case you missed anything. Collapse all Who is Apple Music Classical designed for?

Everyone. Beginners can begin their exploration with amazing content from Apple Music Classical editors, including The Story of Classical audio companion guide, and Essentials playlists for classical subgenres, composers, instruments and more. Classical experts can use Apple Music Classical’s powerful search to find any desired recording with just a few keywords.

Why a separate classical app?

Classical music often involves multiple musicians recording works that have been recorded many times before and are referred to by different names. For example, from the formal Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 14 to the popular byname of Moonlight Sonata, or in multiple languages, such as Mondschein Sonata in German. Such complexities mean that classical music fans have been ill-served by streaming platforms. Until now. A distinct app, included with an Apple Music subscription, gives these classical music lovers the editorial and catalogue content they’ve been missing.

Only a dedicated app — with specialised features and a beautiful interface designed for the genre — could remove the complexity and make classical music easily searchable, browsable and accessible for beginners and experts alike.
