TEMPSO, a new streaming interface for classical music, is now available for Spotify and Apple Music listeners. Designed specifically for classical music, TEMPSO offers a unique way to discover the classical music repertoire with a catalogue of more than a million tracks, 37,000 compositions, thousands of albums and performers.
TEMPSO was built to make classical music more accessible and friendly for beginners, enthusiasts and musicians. TEMPSO’s seamless integration with Apple Music and Spotify achieves just that at no additional cost for existing subscribers.
Because traditional music streaming platforms are pop-driven, their structure only allows for three search categories: song, artist, and album. Classical music is available on these major streaming services, but the numerous criteria that make each classical recording unique – composer, work, conductor, orchestra, soloist, and more – are missing from the structure. As a result, classical music lovers who use those conventional services struggle with the lack of user-friendly search options, and the unsatisfactory search results they generate. Musicians and their recordings can be found only with difficulty or not at all, drastically reducing visibility for classical artists on these platforms. In addition, first-time listeners are leſt with fewer options to discover classical music and understand its structure.
By contrast, TEMPSO has developed a data model and user interface that organizes and displays classical recordings in a clean, clear, and easily accessible way. Listeners can choose from a rich audio library that allows them to compare, for example, dozens of versions of Bach’s Goldberg Variations. Listeners can also explore performers, and access their full discographies by composers, labels and many more filters. TEMPSO’s rich data model finally allows listeners to take the backseat with automated and curated playlists that will take them on endless musical journeys.
TEMPSO is available for download on the App Store and Google Play Store. Users can download the app and browse the catalogue without a Spotify or Apple Music account. However, users will be asked to connect TEMPSO to their Spotify Premium account or Apple Music account to listen to recordings. Once the link has been established between TEMPSO and those services, listeners can stay on TEMPSO and listen to the entire catalogue from the TEMPSO app directly.
TEMPSO is rated 5 stars on both App Store and Google Play Store.
