Jamendo is best known for offering great music you've never heard of before. But music-lovers can also find here famous names such as Bach, Chopin or Verdi, thanks to a partnership with the italian netlabel OnClassical.
The creators of OnClassical have been offering high quality recordings of royalty-free classical music available for download and licensing (e.g. for film soundtracks) for some years now. They recently decided to try and see what would happen if they worked together with jamendo. "To try something that nobody had tried before on the internet - and why not - also in the 'offline world': royalty-free music which can be used freely, without any DRM or bureaucracy that just makes many people lose time and money, and makes other people rich who have nothing to do with the work of the artists."
As OnClassical attaches great importance to the high sound quality of their recordings, exclusively CD-quality files can be downloaded. That's why you can't download their music in MP3 on jamendo but have to buy it for a freely chosen amount, starting at 6€ par album, on their website.
However, you just might find yourself listening to some OnClassical music during your next holidays or the next time you go out for a meal! Their catalog is part of our jamendo PRO service, and several hotels have already signed up to play it as their background music...
