iPhone and iPad users have a great new app to explore classical music and live performances. Now in the Apple iTunes store, MediciTV Festivals is available for free. App users can stay connected following classical news through a Twitter timeline and medici.tv content from Facebook updates (shown on the right side of the screen.)


I think I’ll be checking this out!

Many thanks to my daughter Kelsey for bringing this to my attention!

Deutsche Grammophon in partnership with Touch Press proudly announce the release of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony App, available now on the App Store for iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone.

The Beethoven’s 9th Symphony App features four of DG’s greatest recordings of this iconic work, with the ground-breaking ability to switch instantly between each performance on-the-fly as well as expert commentary, artist interviews and more.

No, you aren’t reading a typo above. Really.

I just received an email form someone who has a new iPhone app out. I’ve yet to even look at it, but I couldn’t resist this blog entry since I wanted to get that blog entry title in. Because I’m just that darn witty. Or goofy. Or something.

Dr. Joel Clifft, a professor in the music department at USC and APU, has created Music Theory Pro – an iPhone app for musicians or anyone who wants to learn music. His students joke, “It’s like having Dr. Clifft in my pocket!”.

So I guess I’ll have to check out Music Theory Pro even while I was never all that great at music theory and yet I’m a professional musician. Go figure. (Of course I’m also an oboist who was never that great at reed making. Go figure²)

Guess I’m going to start a new category called Apps, and as I find them (as you share some with me!) I’ll post ’em.

This is not an endorsement of this app (since I don’t have it), but merely an announcement of the app.
