Happy one hundred and nineteenth DG

Bookmark and Share

Today is the 119th birthday of Deutsche Grammophon. Since its foundation Deutsche Grammophon has always been a pioneer in the use of new technology but it is during this decade where digital technology is on a level to move beyond familiar audio and video products: the first of these is Beethoven's 9th Symphony released in 2013: an audio-visual, interactive and informative iOS app, combining these three elements into a revolutionary experience. It is followed by the Vivaldi Four Seasons App in 2014 which compares the original Four Seasons by Vivaldi, represented by the acclaimed recording by Trevor Pinnock, with a Recomposed version by Max Richter. In 2015 DG releases the universal iPhone / iPad app „Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood" together with the New York producers Giants Are Small, an unforgettable journey of classical music, visual wonder, and digital play, giving an invigorating new perspective on Prokofiev's classic. Narrators of the story are Alice Cooper and, for the german version, Campino.
