A great listening and learning experience

I have used this app for years and have thoroughly enjoyed listening to Beethoven’s 9th Symphony while watching the score scroll by. What a fabulous way to observe Beethoven’s orchestration techniques while you listen to his inimitable style. As long as I’ve listened to Beethoven, 59 years at this writing, I have never ceased being amazed at his synthesis and invention. It is all simply too marvelous to overstate. I’d love to find other apps like this for similar works.

A stunning idea perfectly realized

I bought the full version of this app a few days ago, and I’m so happy I did. I can’t recall the last time five dollars gave me so much enjoyment. This is brilliantly designed and executed; it’s a great thrill and very highly recommended.
And it supports background play (I’m listening to it now, as I compose this).
I thank everyone who contributed to making this little miracle.
