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

Best app I’ve ever purchased

My first app review ever. Absolutely love this app. My favorite symphony comes to life in ways in ways I would not have thought of. I’m completely satisfied and I don’t usually say that about anything.


Dissatisfied with bugs / customer service

Another owner of the original Beethoven 9 app. Found a major bug in the app and contacted support. Was told touchpress no longer owned the app and to contact Amphio. Did so, and It’s been almost two weeks with no reply! Do not buy this app as the new company obviously does not care about support, which is a shame as the app itself use to work perfectly and was pure joy!
