Berlin (31 March 2023)  – Berliner Philharmoniker Recordings today announces a partnership with Apple Music Classical. All of the label’s recordings to date are available on the new app, developed especially for classical music and now available in the App Store. The entire label catalogue can be accessed in the highest available sound quality (Hi-Res Lossless with a maximum resolution of up to 192 kHz/24 bit) and is supplemented by detailed background information and the complete metadata. This includes Berliner Philharmoniker Recordings’ latest release: Symphonies 8–10 by Dmitri Shostakovich performed by the Berliner Philharmoniker and their chief conductor Kirill Petrenko. This recording will be available for streaming in Spatial Audio exclusively on Apple Music Classical.
More Spatial Audio albums of the Orchestra and Kirill Petrenko, recorded natively in Atmos in the Philharmonie Berlin, will be made available exclusively on Apple Music Classical in the coming months. Fans will find these recordings in a space dedicated to the Berliner Philharmoniker on Apple Music.
Olaf Maninger (Principal Cello, Media Board and Managing Director of Berlin Phil Media): “We are delighted to be a partner in the launch of the eagerly awaited Apple Music Classical app with the recordings of our label Berliner Philharmoniker Recordings. For almost 15 years, we have been bringing our music to a worldwide audience in the Digital Concert Hall. Our goal is to always do this at the highest possible audiovisual quality level, which is equally true for the recordings of our label. Now being able to enjoy them streamed on Apple Music Classical in Hi-Res and spatial audio is another step in this direction and a very good sign for the classical music market.”

Apple Music Classical is here.
