Over the years I've shared a remarkable guide to the orchestra, talked about the roller coaster ups and downs of selling an orchestra, showed instruments from the inside and looked at conductors analyzed through motion capture.
A glance at the app and it becomes obvious that is was created with great care. In a blog post Touch Press' Creative Director goes behind the scenes and the passion becomes evident:
The first beautiful thing about The Orchestra is the music. For that we thank Haydn, Beethoven, Debussy, Mahler, Stravinsky, and a certain Mr. Berlioz. (Music by these great composers and others was performed for this app by the Philharmonia orchestra, one of the world’s great musical institutions, and also one of its most innovative under the direction of Esa-Pekka Salonen, a big name in such circles.)
