Classical Apps win RPS Award

Classical Apps win RPS Award
The Orchestra App created by TouchPress in association with Music Sales, Esa-Pekka Salonen and the Philharmonia Orchestra, has been given recognition in an award at the Royal Philharmonic Society Awards held on May 14 at The Dorchester, London.

TouchPress received the Creative Communication Award for their classical music iPad Apps.

RPS comments:

‘TouchPress's three iPad apps - The Orchestra, Beethoven's 9th Symphony and The Liszt Sonata - represent a new pinnacle in the marriage of performance, interpretation and new technology. In shedding light on aspects of our art which so often remain obscure, they possess a rare power to take every listener - regardless of age and expertise - straight to the music's beating heart.’
