Deutsche Grammophon launches DG Discovery – the world’s first classical label streaming App
Curated iPad and iPhone app offers subscribers instant and unlimited access to peerless performances and a rich supply of background information

It allows you to listen to incredible performances whenever and wherever you wish, which is a terrific advantage for today’s music lovers. I’m sure that DG Discovery will become one of the main ways that we listen to treasures from the great Deutsche Grammophon catalogue.”
