Idagio is one of the companies (see also: Primephonic) trying to build a business out of a music-streaming service focused purely on classical music. It has a new milestone to report: more than 1m app downloads globally, with an admittedly-less-useful stat that it now has subscribers in 180 countries.
It’s taken four years to reach the million-downloads mark. “Idagio offers almost the entire classical catalogue in lossless audio quality: Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony alone is available in nearly 200 versions,” noted CEO Till Janczukowicz. “For music lovers all over the world, IDAGIO turns every smartphone into the ultimate classical collection.”
Idagio expanded to North America in September 2018, as it announced an $11.7m funding round. It said then that the company had signed up 250,000 registered users so far in 2018 alone, and that its catalogue had grown to more than 1m tracks, with 20k more being added every week.
