About this app

The largest and best organized collection of classical music in the world! Play (stream) these marvelous works of classical music through our queuing player, whenever you want, where ever you are. Find the works you want to
listen to with the help of our unique classification, developed by expert musicologists. We offer three modes:

1) The Library - where you can select from all the performances of a work in our enormous collection of recordings - organized by composer, category, and composition. We offer an immediate list of "The Greats" (composers) and their works, or you can search for any composer or performer by name (just enter the first few characters of the last name). Once you see a list of performances, long-tap on one of them to either add it to the player's queue, or add it to one of your playlists, or to view and play the entire album it came from. A short tap on a performance sends it immediately to the player - or its queue if something is already playing.

2) Must Know - where you will be guided to appreciate the most important composers and works of classical music through their latest released recordings. You can search by composers or by a combination of Period
(Baroque, Classical, Romantic, etc.) and Genre (Orchestral, Chamber, Solo, Stage, etc.)

3) Playlists - where you can play some suggested playlists, or you can build and play your own! Subscribers have unlimited access and can play entire tracks or complete works or albums (even entire operas and multi-CD collections) with just one click. Non-subscribers will hear one minute clips of each track.

Gorgeous music, terrible app. This is the jumpiest, junkiest app I've ever used. Totally agree with all other complaints about random stopping, loss of playlists etc. Aren't the developers doing ANYTHING to fix the glitches? Recently almost everything I download stops before the end. Thanks for wrecking Chopin for me! Why amass a fantastic archive only to undermine the listener's experience by rubbish technology?

I was a Classical Archives subscriber for several years. Buggy poor quality App. I used it on Asus Tablets, Samsung and LG smartphones. I have been a subscriber to idagio classical music for about 9 months. It is great. Also tried Primephonic. It is also great. I have disovered several other composers that I'd not heard before. If you like Dmitri Shostakovich; you have to try Mieczyslaw Weinberg!! Great music and prolific composer in his time. Me, age 59.

I haven't even scratched the surface of what there is, but the app needs to be improved in many ways
