Apple announced their classical music-focused streaming service a few weeks ago, and now you can download it straight from the app store on IOS devices. This new app is separate from Apple Music, but will still require a subscription to use. With Apple Music Classical, you’ll be able to access one of the world’s largest classical music libraries with over 5,000,000 tracks in high resolution, and with fully optimized search. Spatial audio will also be supported with expertly curated playlists. With its detailed biographies and insightful descriptions of composer profiles, Apple Music Classical looks to be the streaming service that classical music lovers deserve.
Apple Music Classical features lossless audio of up to 24 bit/192 kHz throughout the service so listeners can experience the nuances of every performance. With Dolby Atmos, listeners can enjoy thousands of recordings from the best seat in the concert hall, immersed in a 360-degree soundscape where music comes from every direction, including above. Apple Music Classical’s Spatial Audio catalog adds new albums every week as legendary recordings are remastered and contemporary performances are captured in Spatial Audio.
Additionally, Apple Music has partnered with many of the greatest classical institutions in the world — including the Berlin Philharmonic, Carnegie Hall, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the London Symphony Orchestra, the Metropolitan Opera, the New York Philharmonic, Opéra national de Paris, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the San Francisco Symphony, and the Vienna Philharmonic — to bring Apple Music Classical listeners new, unique, and exclusive content and recordings at launch and beyond. Apple Music Classical will also host several live performances featuring a few of these incredible partners at Apple Store locations around the world as part of the Today at Apple programming beginning in March 2023.
