About Us

Welcome to iClassical

At iClassical we hope to share our love of classical music with a wider audience.

iClassical is primarily aimed at those people seeking to develop an interest in classical music but it is hoped that more experienced collectors will also find something of interest as the site expands.

We plan to share a list of 100 masterworks with you. In each case we will say a little bit about the composer and the piece of music; in addition to proffering a recommended recording. These pieces will form the basis of a superb classical music collection and help you to  discover composers, performers and genres that you would like to explore in more depth. We will build this collection by adding one additional work each week.

We will provide an increasing number of short reviews of new works and re-issues. Each will be rated on a star system (* to *****) based upon both the quality of the performance and the sound engineering.°

Each month, at iClassical, we pick three albums, either new releases or reissues, that we regard as being worthy of your special attention. We nominate one recent release as our overall CD of the Month. We also highlight a bargain choice, that offers exceptional value for money, and a collectors’ choice for those wishing to branch out a little!

Please be tolerant whilst our website is being developed. Ultimately the site will include a wide range of recommended recordings, highlight new recordings of interest, celebrate anniversaries, provide links to useful resources and discuss ways of enjoying recorded classical music in the twenty-first century. We notify new posts and updates to static pages via Twitter so if you enjoy our site then please follow us and recommend us to your friends.

If you have any views regarding features that you would like included please contact us.

Happy listening!
