Solo Each Instrument: With the touch of a finger, isolate an individual section in the BeatMap of Max Richter’s ensemble, and listen to that instrument playing above the rest of the orchestra.

What's New in Version 1.0.4
• Bug fixes
What??? Get rid of Max Richter's junk.
Max Richter's "recompose" has no place here, at all. It is not a bad piece of music, but it does not help learn or appreciate Four Seasons in any way. It is purely modern and overly synthesized. The fact that it is half the app is ridiculous. This cheap pet trick is not worthy of serious, or other, study.
Instead, how about replace it with an original composition, using the baroque instruments, and one with contemporary instrument composition. Then you could get an real better understanding of the music and how it has evolved with the changing face of symphonic composition.
Couldn't give it fewer stars, because it is one of the greatest and most popular pieces of music ever written.
