Warner Classics adds its catalogue to streaming service Idagio

Idagio is one of the streaming services focusing on classical music, with a catalogue of more than 650k tracks. That catalogue is getting bigger from this week, thanks to a new deal with Warner Classics.

Over the coming weeks, WMG’s classical division will add its new and recent releases to the platform, as well as its back catalogue, which encompasses labels of the past including EMI Classics, Teldec and Virgin Classics.

Warner’s team is also creating some playlists for Idagio to help listeners find their way in to its catalogue.

“We are excited that we can now also offer legendary recordings, from Rostropovich to Du Pré, Harnoncourt to Rattle, and much more. All of these will be available, of course, in lossless sound and searchable through our unique interface,” said Idagio CEO Till Janczukowicz.

Warner Classics president Alain Lanceron described the deal as a “strategic partnership” and added that “Idagio has worked on a new model and technological solution to ensure enhanced search functionality, specialist curation and audio quality. They care as much about delivering quality and choice to the audience and the artistic community, as we do at Warner Classics and Erato.”
