Not only did the LSO Live mark it’s 100th release with the Sir Colin Davis Anthology, they also launched a new LSO Live iPad app.
The app has been created as a platform through which iPad users can browse and explore LSO Live releases, purchase and download them, and listen both through their device (offline as well as online) and through connected HDTVs via Apple TV and speakers using Apple’s AirPlay technology.
There are some great video interviews with conductors and key players as well as a host of information on the recordings plus the ability to create playlists and stream them.
The LSO Live app is built on iTunes, and works with the user’s iTunes account. When the app is downloaded it will automatically connect with the account associated with the device, and search for LSO Live catalogue items already owned. These items will be immediately available for playback in the app and via AirPlay.
