My First Orchestra App for iPad now available

October 24, 2012

My First Orchestra App

Following in the success of My First Classical Music App—rated in the top-2 children’s apps by the Sunday Times—comes the stylish sequel My First Orchestra App HD, available now for iPad on iTunes. It’s the perfect introduction to the orchestra and its instruments for children aged 4 and above.

In this brand new app there is a very special guide to the orchestra: a little green creature called Tormod. He is a troll who has come from the top of a mountain in Norway to find out about music. Every instrument has its own page, with a young performer playing a solo, shown by Tormod the Troll. Tap any words or pictures and hear the text narrated, extracts of music, animations and sound effects.

This unique and exciting app from the world’s largest independent classical record company is full of different pieces of music in excellent audio quality. It has beautiful illustrations created especially for this app, and a friendly, engaging narration—tap on any piece of text to hear it. It includes some fun activities as well: Have a go at the quiz, see if you can name the instruments, and have a go at conducting.

It will captivate children aged 4+ and delight parents.

The full album of music includes:
John Williams: Superman
Sarasate: Carmen Fantasy
Mozart: Horn Concerto No 4
Mendelssohn: The Hebrides (‘Fingal’s Cave’)
Wagner: Overture to ‘Tannhäuser’
Grieg: In the Hall of the Mountain King
– and over 30 more!

‘Parents and children alike will be charmed by this app.’
