In 2021, Apple bought the Dutch streaming service Primephonic, which specializes in classical music. It was he who became the basis of the new application, which from launch will offer users more than 5 million classic songs, including new releases in high quality, as well as hundreds of carefully selected playlists. In addition to music, Apple Music Classical will include composer biographies and detailed information on key works.

Application users can search for works of interest by composer, conductor, title or catalog number. Content is broadcast in high quality up to 192 kHz / 24 bit (Hi-Res Lossless). Famous composers are presented in the application not only with biographical data and compositions, but also with high-quality digital portraits that Apple has commissioned artists to create. Over time, the library of the service will be replenished with new compositions.

The Apple Music Classical app is free because it’s part of an Apple Music subscription. This means that all subscribers to the company’s streaming platform can use it. The new app will be available on iOS devices (from iOS 15.4) at launch, but the developers will also be releasing an Android version later.
