    ◎對古典音樂的粉絲來說,Spotify不是很好用的平台,不僅要忍受頭版上一直出現Drake,而且它的搜尋無法分辨貝多芬第五號交響曲的3572個版本,現在 Primephonic解決了這些問題。Primephonic推出專為古典音樂愛好者設計的串流服務,目前該平台可以在美國、英國和荷蘭使用,擁有超過100萬首古典音樂曲目,包括Warner Classics、Sony Classical、Universal Music Classics、Decca、Deutsche Grammophon和EMI等主要唱片公司及全球超過400個其他廠牌的曲目。

    ◎Primephonic還提供獨特的支付方案,考慮到古典音樂作品的時間較長,它以每秒付費的模式運行,以確保向藝人和權利持有者提供更公平的付款。大多數串流服務對古典音樂聽眾的服務都是不周到的,因為這些平台並非設計要來支持這種音樂類型的複雜性;有數千位的作曲家、成千上萬的表演者、很接近的曲名,這些曲目中又有多個樂章,這些音樂甚至要追溯到數百年以前,這些都使得古典音樂要放上串流平台成為一個特別具有挑戰性的問題。

    ◎Primephonic為古典音樂設計的搜尋功能讓聽眾可以用作曲家、作品、表演者、音樂時期和流派做搜索,提供更容易的使用方式來瀏覽大量的古典音樂目錄。由Orastream所支援的自適應位元速率技術可提供高解析度音頻(最高達24-bit無損音質),還提供深入的背景資訊和動態內容,包括作曲家、錄音和表演者的許多故事和軼事。特別策劃的播放清單,從中世紀到極簡主義、代表性人物到怪才、適合車上或是健身房聆聽的都有。還有一個並排比較的功能,讓聽眾只需單一點擊即可比較同一作品的不同錄音,還可以對單一作品的所有錄音做完整的了解。

    ◎Primephonic提供30天免費試用和兩種訂閱方案,高級訂閱費用為每個月7.99美元,提供320kbps的MP3音檔;白金訂閱費用為每個月14.99美元,提供最高到24-bit無損音檔。Primephonic現在可以在iOS系統的移動裝置和平板電腦上使用,並將於秋季開始在Android系統的平台上提供;也有提供網路播放器。

    Spotify is not great if you're a fan of classical music. Not only do you have to put up with Drake on your front page, but its search can't tell between the 3572 versions of Beethoven's 5th. Primephonic has launched to solve those problems.

    Primephonic has launched as streaming service specifically designed for classical music fans. Available in the U.S., the UK and Netherlands, the platform features over 1 million classical music tracks, including catalogues from major labels Warner Classics, Sony Classical, Universal Music Classics, Decca, Deutsche Grammophon and EMI, and over 400 additional labels worldwide.

    Pay Per Second

    Primephonic also offers a unique payments scheme. It operates on a pay-per-second model to ensure a fairer payments to artist and rights holders that takes in to consideration s the longer duration of classical music works.

    Unique Needs & Solutions

    Classical music listeners are underserved by most streaming services, whose platforms are not designed to support the complexities of the genre. With thousands of composers, thousands of performers, similar titles, multiple movements within those titles, and music that dates back hundreds of years, the classical music streaming problem is a particularly challenging one.

    Primephonic is designed to solve those problems with:

    A search functionality designed for classical music allows the listener to search by composer, work, artist, musical period, and genre, offering greater ease of use navigating the vast catalogue of classical music.

    High resolution audio quality (up to 24-bit lossless) with adaptive bit-rate technology powered by Orastream).

    In-depth background information and dynamic content, including many stories and anecdotes about composers, recordings, and artists, to enrich the classical experience.

    Specially curated playlists that dive deeper into every musical curiosity and obsession, from medieval to minimalism, icons and oddballs, for the car or the gym.

    Side-by-side comparison feature that allows the listener to compare different recordings of the same work with a single click, and also explore a complete overview of all recordings of a single work.

    "As a classical music lover myself, I have often experienced the frustrations of listening to classical music on today's existing streaming services," said Thomas Steffens, CEO, Primephonic. "Streaming has revolutionized the way the world listens to music, but it has failed to revolutionize classical music. There is a strong need among classical listeners for a streaming service that not only delivers an enriching streaming experience, but also to provides a fair revenue model that supports classical artists. Primephonic aims to do just that, and finally usher in a new era for classical music in the digital age."

    Primephonic offers a 30 day free trial, and two subscription tiers. The premium subscription costs $7.99 (MP3 at 320kbps) and the platinum subscription costs $14.99 (up to 24-bit lossless) per month. Primephonic is available now on iOS-supported platforms (mobile and tablet), and will be available on Android-supported platforms in fall 2018.

    The Primephonic web player is also available at play.primephonic.com.
