Do you love Beethoven or Mozart and does the Apple Music and Spotify offer not to sound like music to you? Then try Idagio. This streaming service only focuses on classical music.
Idagio: Spotify for classical music
Most people have enough to Spotify, but for fans of classical music, the offer is a bit scanty. The streaming service Idagio plays on this. The Spotify competitor focuses on an exclusive offer of classical music.
The app works about the same as Apple Music, but there are differences. Firstly, music is not sorted in the classical format of the song, artist or album, but per composer, ensemble, soloist or composer.
So if you search for a specific work, you will get different versions to compare with each other, just as you can listen to both the studio version and live recording in Spotify (for some songs). You can, of course, add all these works to self-made playlists.
Playlists by the experts
The design of Idagio is also very different from that of Apple Music or Spotify. The interface is quiet and minimalistic. In addition, the playlists are composed by experts and Idagio has exclusive pieces in the collection that can’t be listened to anywhere else. This audio is played in CD quality.
To save data it is possible to download masterpieces from Mozart and Beethoven, for example, so that you can listen to them offline. A nice addition is that there are multiple playlists for different moods such as ‘Powerful’, ‘Relaxed’ or ‘Happy’.
Finally, it is possible via Idagio via AirPlay to stream all speakers in your house. Sonos also supports the streaming service for classical music. Idagio costs 9.99 euros per month, but you can try the app for 14 days for free. You can cancel the subscription at any time.
