Apple reported Thursday that it will send off an independent application called Apple Music Classical, which will be accessible at no additional expense to existing Apple Music subscribers, on Walk 28.
At launch, Apple claimed, the catalog would include thousands of exclusive albums and over five million unique tracks. Many classical works have been recorded and released in multiple ways, but Apple says the standalone app will have “complete and accurate metadata” and allow users to “search by composer, work, conductor, or even catalog number.”
In August 2021, the company purchased Primephonic, a well-known streaming service for classical music. “Get a significantly improved classical music experience beginning with Primephonic playlists and exclusive audio content,” Apple stated at the time.
Apple Music Classical can only be used with an active internet connection.
The company stated that an Android version would be “coming soon.”
