Rediscover classical music with the groundbreaking app, The Orchestra. Esa-Pekka Salonen conducts the world-renowned Philharmonia performing extended extracts from eight works representing three centuries of symphonic music.

The app allows real-time selection of multiple video and audio tracks, along with an automatically synchronised score and dynamic graphical note-by-note visualisation of each piece as it is played.. The result is an immersive environment for exploring the music and all the instruments of the orchestra.

--------------

The features:

• Multi-camera, multi-track performances of eight pieces with automatically synchronised full score, curated score, or simplified representation.
• Mesmeric synchronised BeatMap highlights each and every note played on a graphical representation of the orchestra.
• Optional audio and/or subtitle commentaries on every piece from both the conductor and the players.
• Discover how each instrument works, and read, watch and hear the musicians themselves explain their role in the orchestra.
• Insightful text on the pieces, composers and instruments specially written by Mark Swed, music critic of the LA Times.
• Stunning fully interactive video playback allows complete real-time control of the iPad screen in both landscape and portrait orientation.
