Idagio, the Berlin-based streaming service which teamed up ten weeks ago with DG, has just struck a similar deal with Warner.

press release:

Berlin, 18th of April 2018: Warner Classics has launched a new collaboration with IDAGIO​, in a partnership that will see the specialist classical music streaming service make the entire Warner Classics and Erato catalogue available to its users. The IDAGIO catalogue, which already comprises over 650,000 tracks, will encompass all new and recent releases from the Warner Classics and Erato labels, as well as the complete catalogue, including recordings originally issued on such iconic labels as EMI Classics and Teldec (now Warner Classics) and Virgin Classics (now Erato).

    What exactly is the difference in respect to other streaming services such as Tidal, Apple Music, Deezer etc?

  • Lukas from IDAGIO says:

    Hello Jakob,
    Thanks for your interest. We provide a digital platform structured specifically for classical music. For example, you can browse by composer, period, and instrument, or by work and compare all available recordings on one page. Furthermore, we aim to provide a much more curated catalogue, with a wide selection of thoughtful and creative thematic playlists. Additionally, every track is available in high-quality lossless audio – even without an internet connection, thanks to our offline mode.
    If you have any further questions, feel free to contact us through our website.
    Best wishes
    Lukas from IDAGIO

    Idagio is evidently not available in the US, alas.

    Hi Marc,
    Indeed, IDAGIO is not available in the U.S., Canada, China and Japan due to licensing restrictions at the moment. However, as our mission is to build the best streaming service for classical music, we are working on bringing IDAGIO to these territories.

    If you would like to be notified when IDAGIO is ready to launch in the U.S., please contact us through our website.

    Best wishes
    Lukas from IDAGIO
