Four of Deutsche Grammophon’s legendary recordings collected in one exceptional app to give you unparalleled insight into an iconic piece.

Features include:

• Compare the performances: Listen to four recordings of the piece spanning 50 years, and switch seamlessly between them with a touch – at any point in the music – to hear a note start in one decade and finish in another.

• Discover the BeatMap: This groundbreaking visualization of the performances shows different sections of the orchestra pulse in time with the music.

• Explore the music: Beethoven’s 9th Symphony lets you immerse yourself in Beethoven’s late masterpiece – follow the score or the 1825 manuscript, precisely synchronized to the music.

Bonus features available on your iPad:

• Join the experts: Watch over 90 minutes of specially filmed insights from musicians, writers and great conductors including John Eliot Gardiner, Gustavo Dudamel and members of the Berliner Philharmoniker.

• The story of the symphony: The app also features a book on Beethoven and the Ninth Symphony, plus two levels of real-time analysis and commentary by the pianist, composer and broadcaster David Owen Norris

I've never been that into Beethoven, but after unlocking the full app it's great the level of knowledge and insight you can get on this single app.
The ability to just hop from one performance to another really gets you to appreciate the differences and uniqueness of different performances.
The reason for a the 4 star, if I go off to do something else on my iPad it shuts down, where with such good performances it would be great if the music just kept on playing with the app working in the background

Re-learning music


This app is awesome! The interaction makes learning much easier than just reading a book and the real time score playback makes score analysis a dream come true.

I sure hope Touch Press will release all major classical works in this format. And although £9.99 is easily justified by the amount and quality of the content, I hope the price of future releases may be a touch lower.

Very much recommended to all music lovers, students, musicians and beginners alike.

Good app - sloppy design

Very good when just viewed on the iPad, but even after buying the 'full' experience, when streaming the video version of the Bernstein performance over Apple TV you can either stream the video or the music but not both at the same time! You can use mirroring to get sound and audio but this isn't the same as being able to stream full sized video. Pity because this distracts from the experience of a fascinating app.
