You can do that. I just searched for "Beethoven Symphony 5" and got 50+ hits. Among the hits I checked there was Kleiber, all 3 Karajan, Barenboim, Böhm, Abbado, Harnoncourt, Salonen, Krips, Gardiner, Mengelberg, Haitink, Furtwängler, Fricsay ... Probably at least 30+ diffferent recordings totally.
Apple Music is very artist-centric. If you search for "Gasparini" you get a lot of hits on CDs that contain music by Gasparini, but they are all listed by artist, not composer. A lot of the CDs have just a few tracks (for inst. some arias from Gasparini operas), but they don't list the composer. So a CD that is listed may contain just one track by Gasparini and a lot of tracks by Händel or Vivaldi, but which track is composed by which composer is up to you to find out one...
I care about music, and Apple Music has a lot of it. Just yesterday I listened to Ferdinand Ries' WInd Nocturnos resorded by CPO. It seems that most of CPOs catalogue is there. 2 days ago I found Julius Röntgen's cello sonatas. Searching for "Bajazet" I found both Vivaldi's and Gasparini's operas there. And of course I have found the recordings of favorites from my youth - "It's a beautiful day", "Curved air", "Quicksilver". A great service. They also provide interesting...
I'm at 203 034 songs now (a symphony counts as 3+ songs, an opera can be up to 50 or 60), so even the 100 000 song limit is not large enough.I don't really feel the need to have my whole library available everywhere I go, so I'm fine with having a selection. I have 2 160GB iPod Classics that I use for traveling. One contains pop/rock, one contains orchestral/chamber/church music, and 1 for opera. Works fine. I hope they will work for a long time. BTW: How does iTunes Match...
 This still does not answer my question of cost for the Apple solution using iTunes Match.It is a cost/quality/convenience equation, and I'm not sure that that convenience equals out the cost/quality issue.Thank you for the info. My media library is spread over 4 4TB disks, of which 12 TB is video and 4 TB is audio. I will have a look at your suggestion. I have a feeling that iTunes Match is not for me...
My music library is 3.8 TB large consisting of a lot of recordings not available from iTunes. 75% of it in ALAC. As far as I have understood this means that most of it will have to go in the cloud, and it will be downgraded to 256 kbps AAC. This means that I will need at least 2 TB (this should do it with the reduced file size due to reduced quality) iCloud storage for this to work. Disregarding the reduced quality - how much will this cost? I still prefer CDs. They always...
I don't think Match is available where I live. Is there any use in paying for this when I have 4 TB of ALAC files of classical music locally? I also don't buy files on the net (the exception is from Hyperion that sell ALAC files of their catalogue)
Great - I might try it then. But with 10 000 CDs of classical music, all ripped til ALAC already on my system, I probably have a better selection locally anyway. BTW: The best Lark ascending is Hugh Bean/Adrian Boult on EMI (1967) :)
Is there anything here that might interest a classical music nut like me? Operas? Chamber music? Renaissance? Monteverdi, Palestrina, Mozart; Schubert, Stravinsky, Shostakovich...?
