Finally, classical music and Apple Music working together!
Transform Apple Music into a magical classical music jukebox - browse composers, genres and periods, create playlists of multi-movement works, start no-nonsense radio stations and much, much more, for free!
- DESIGNED FOR CLASSICAL MUSIC
Say goodbye to tracks and welcome multi-movement works!
. COMPOSERS, WORKS AND MUCH MORE
220 composers and tens of thousands of works, conveniently organised: A to Z, popular, essential, by genre, by period. Set favorite composers and works and browse directly to them.
. CREDITS GO ALL TO THE ARTISTS
No more guessing games: each recording presents full credits of its performers: orchestras, conductors, soloists, singers, chamber groups...
. NO-NONSENSE RADIO STATIONS
The typical classical music online radio is pure chaos: the "sacrificial dance" from "The Rite of Spring", one prelude from "The Well-Tempered Clavier", then a slow movement from some Mozart piano concerto... stop this erratic movement swapping and embrace a classical radio that makes sense.
. 1, 2, 3, EASY AS A-B-C
Albums and tracks are convenient for popular music but not suitable at all for classical music and its large, fragmented works. Say hi to a classical music player designed for multi-movement sets, that presents both a detailed view of each movement and a global progress bar of the work as a whole.
. PLAYLISTS GALORE!
Organize recordings by setting them favorites or by creating playlists, which can be played randomically as a radio station.
* An active Apple Music subscription is needed for full music playback.
Bug fixes and stability improvements.

Great Niche Companion, Still a 1.0
I love the idea of this app. In the past, I’ve stuck almost exclusively to albums that are saved to my library when listening to my music. I’ve managed the metadata of my library so that it’s easier to find what I need... but it’s still a chore.
This app lets me expand my selection while still setting parameters for the type of music I want to hear. For example, while I love classical music in general, I avoid opera and anything vocal... it’s just my preference. This is the first streaming app I’ve seen that lets me set those kinds of parameters.
My main request is to make this app native for iPad. I listen to my music mostly at home, and use my iPad to airplay the music. Right now the tiny screen is awkward.
One of the best idea as long as I'm concerned
Since I discovered Concertino as a Web app, I've been loving the idea and it's been my go-to app for classical music. And it's now a native iOS app and it can play recordings in app itself. And the developer is very motivated and communicative. I have high respect on them.
I could give it five stars. But I know there is always margin of improvements. Hence, four for now. I'm pretty sure I will give it five after several more releases.
Good for starters like myself
I really like the presentation of the content.
Two modifications that make this five stars for me:
1) Remove the playback animations, or at least give an option to do so. Distracts from the actual content.
2) When viewing the playback "card" that pops up, the taps at the bottom tab bar appear to do nothing. Took me a minute to realize that the change happens underneath the card. Perhaps the playback card should automatically minimize when switching tabs.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
