Beethoven’s 9th Symphony for iPhone presents four of Deutsche Grammophon’s legendary recordings of this iconic work, with the amazing ability to switch instantly between each performance at any point in the music. As you listen, you can watch the synchronised musical score, be guided by expert commentary, or immerse yourself in the hypnotic graphical BeatMap of the orchestra, highlighting every note.

Beethoven’s 9th Symphony is created by Touch Press, the people behind The Orchestra app, which Apple has featured in TV commercials and poster ads.


Features include:

• Four legendary performances of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony including Ferenc Fricsay’s first stereo recording of this work from 1958 with the Berliner Philharmoniker; Herbert von Karajan’s famous 1962 recording with the same orchestra; the widely loved and charismatic maestro Leonard Bernstein’s video recording from 1979 with the Wiener Philharmoniker; and the ground-breaking 1992 recording on period instruments conducted by John Eliot Gardiner.
• Switch between these recordings anywhere on-the-fly without missing a beat.
• Typeset score, simplified score and the hypnotic BeatMap perfectly synchronised to all performances.
• Specially commissioned synchronised commentary by David Owen Norris.
