If you are a lover of classical music and, in addition, you are a user of the Apple product ecosystem, this news may be for you. The Cupertino company has just announced the launch of Apple Music Classicalan independent application that, as its name indicates, is specifically focused on this musical trend.
Although the usual Apple Music application allows us to listen to classical music, this new proposal from Apple aims to establish itself as “the definitive application for listening to classical music” thanks to an immense catalog of high-quality and free sounds that do not belong to the genre. Let’s see what are the characteristics of this proposal.
How Apple Music Classical is different from Apple Music
When we use Apple Music Classical we will find an application specifically designed for classical music, although to use it we will have to have an Apple Music subscription. This will have its own search engine that will allow us to navigate through the catalog of more than 5 million tracks.
The app will not only become the exclusive home for this musical genre, but will seek to enhance the user experience with more than 700 playlists curated by the Apple Music Classical team. This is a resource that can be very useful for those who want to discover new clues. We will find the classic categories such as “hidden gems” and “essential composers”.
Another highlight of the app is the quality. Apple promises that the content will be played in up to 192 kHz/24-bit in Hi-Res Lossless. In addition, a large part of them will be compatible with spatial audio. The experience will be complemented by high resolution illustrations and portraits of many of the famous composers.
Apple Music Classical will be available on March 28. Starting on that date, Apple Music subscribers (Individual, Family, Student, or Apple One) will be able to download the app and use it at no additional cost. If you want to receive a reminder, you can “get” it now in the App Store and get notified when it launches.
Now we see the results of the purchase of Primephonic
You may remember that in August 2021 Apple bought the streaming service specialized in classical music Primephonic. The Cupertino Company it didn’t take long to close the app and promised an alternative would come later. The truth is that the arrival of the application has taken its time, specifically, 19 months.
After just over a year and a half we see the results. Apple Music Classical is a reality, now we have to wait to see if it will conquer true lovers of classical music. It should be noted that at the time Primephonic users received six months of free Apple Music as compensation for the closure of their application.
