Work With Us

This startup is set to revolutionize classical music

We are a technology company that is driven by the mission to build the world’s best streaming service for classical music lovers.

We’re the best, because we’re the only service worldwide that is able to offer the specialized search that lovers of this genre want and need. A search that they can’t and won’t get at Spotify, Apple Music or Youtube.

We are honoured to also work directly with the world’s leading musicians and institutions, including the Vienna Philharmonic, the Philharmonia Orchestra, and the Israel Philharmonic.
