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.
Wish I had discovered this app sooner. Putting four simultaneous versions together and being able to seamlessly switch between them is nothing short of genius. And not just any versions at that! Friscay is my favorite. Karajan’s ‘62 version with the same orchestra is thought by many to be his best, though I prefer his ‘77 version. Bernstein’s ‘79 video shows his heartfelt emotions better than any other. Finally, Gardner’s version with smaller forces and faster speeds is, to me, a wonderful counterpoint to the more traditional versions preceding it.
I know I will spend many hours exploring this fine app.
