Finally, classical music and Spotify working together

Transform Spotify into a magical classical music jukebox - browse composers, genres and periods, create playlists of multi-movement works, start no-nonsense radio stations and much, much more!

The "classical problem"

Online music, and Spotify, are here to stay. But, like most platforms, Spotify was created for popular music, based on singers, albums and, specially, tracks. Classical music demands a very different approach: it is based on composers, works, performers (a plenty of them) and movements. The traditional singer name/song title taxonomy doesn't fit. Concertmaster tries to bring the complex metadata of classical music to Spotify. It analyzes automatically Spotify metadata and transform a terrifying chaos into a free, open, classical-oriented player.

Designed for
classical music

Say goodbye to tracks and welcome multi-movement works!

Composers, works and much more

220 composers and tens of thousands of works, conveniently organized: A to Z, by genre, by period. Set favorite composers and works and browse directly to them.

No-nonsense radio stations

The typical classical music online radio is pure chaos: the "sacrificial dance" from "The Rite of Spring", one prelude from "The Well-Tempered Clavier", then a slow movement from some Mozart piano concerto... stop this erratic movement swapping and embrace a classical radio that makes sense: only complete works and fully programmable.

Credits go all to the artists

No more guessing games: each recording presents full credits of its performers: orchestras, conductors, soloists, singers, chamber groups...

1, 2, 3, easy as A-B-C

Albums and tracks are convenient for popular music but not suitable at all for classical music and its large, fragmented works. Say hi to a classical music player designed for multi-movement sets, that presents both a detailed view of each movement and a global progress bar of the work as a whole.

Playlists galore!

Organize recordings by setting them favorites or by creating playlists, which can be played randomically as a radio station.

Quality control

Concertmaster has both automated and crowdsourced filters to eliminate bad and incomplete recordings from the library.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is Concertmaster a standalone service? Do I have to subscribe?

Concertmaster is just a Spotify front-end and it is completely free of charge. But, since the music itself will be streamed directly from Spotify, you'll need a Spotify Premium subscription.

I am a Deezer/Apple Music/Google Play Music subscriber. Will there be a Concertmaster for me?

We depend on public SDKs by these platforms to create services on top of them. Luckily, most of them have public SDKs, and a Apple Music version of Concertmaster is already in the works!

How does Concertmaster work?

Concertmaster relies on Open Opus, a free and open database of composers and works, and on its own algorithm, which fetches and analyzes Spotify data. Yes, Spotify already has almost all data the classical listener needs; but its pop-oriented player just don't present them accordingly. Concertmaster does!

Is Concertmaster only for computers? Can I run it on my phone/tablet?

Due to Spotify limitations, Concertmaster doesn't work on mobile browsers. But a mobile app is planeed to be released soon!
