A work of art worthy of the 9th Symphony
This is an amazing app. For a $14 in app purchase, you get 4 complete recordings of the symphony, as well as a video of one, conducted by Leonard Bernstein. That alone, generally speaking, isn't a bad bargain, if you look at comparable prices for the 9th on iTunes.
But, of course, this app doesn't stop there. You see not only the entire score, shown exactly in time with the music, but also several fascinating visualizations and commentary that help your understanding of the piece.
And to top it all off, video and written commentary about the piece is included just for good measure. Pay no attention to the ignorant or disrespectful naysayers here, download the app and try it yourself. This is hours of content, combined beautifully and packaged together in a comprehensive and interactive bundle that will leave you enriched and encouraged.
Worth every dime!!
There is nothing not to love about this app. I'm looking forward to more of the same.
