Cadenza Live is designed for advanced high school, college and professional-level instrumentalists playing Western classical music. Created for iOS mobile devices, Cadenza Live allows you to practice, rehearse and perform with live piano or orchestral accompaniment that follows you in real-time using musical artificial intelligence. Cadenza Live provides an ever-expanding library of 1000+ pieces and movements covering the core classical instrumental repertoire. By placing you directly in the center of the musical ensemble, Cadenza Live helps musicians develop a deeper understanding of repertoire while providing an unparalleled tool for reflective practice.

Cadenza Live offers two auto-renewable subscription plans through in-app purchase - the "Cadenza Monthly Subscription" and "Cadenza Annual Subscription" - allowing full access to download and play any piece in our music library. Most of the library is available worldwide, though some pieces are subject to copyright restrictions in some countries. The Cadenza library page shows the repertoire available in your country. Please check the library page prior to purchasing a subscription.

When purchasing either of the subscriptions a payment will be applied to your iTunes account on confirmation of the purchase. The subscription fee will be charged to your iTunes account within 24-hours of the end of the current period upon renewal. The subscription will automatically renew unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period. You can cancel any time with your iTunes account settings.

IMPORTANT: For best results, please remove the cover or protective case of your iPad or iPhone before using Cadenza Live -- your device cover or case will reduce the built-in microphone's ability to hear and record your playing. Please use headphones or external speaker(s) when playing with Cadenza Live, rather than the device’s built-in speakers. Cadenza Live will not work with Bluetooth speakers or earphones due to latency.

Amazing app! Just some bugs

This is a really great accompanist, especially during the Covid pandemic. However, in Messager solo de concours, I noticed that the piano was still running during the cadenza passage, making a distorted sound.

Great app, hope it lasts!!

This is a follow-up of a previous version that went bankrupt. Now they have relaunched it and enlarged the repertoire.
It is really useful for anyone playing a soloist instrument and wishing for an orchestra to follow you. It actually does!! So you play your part and the orchestra listens to you, slows down accelerates... as you do it. It’s really great and I hope the business model works this time!!!

This is an impressive accompaniment app

It took 5 minutes to get started, mostly spent hunting down a cable to plug in an external speaker. It followed along with my tempo changes, ignored my mistakes, and nailed its entrance after a cadenza. It is so much fun to play along with. Give it a larger repertoire and it will be just about perfect.
