About us
“This startup is set to revolutionize classical music” - Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

Our vision is to enrich people’s lives through classical music. Classical music connects people all over the world, transcending culture, race and generations. It inspires and evokes emotions and thoughts in a way no other art form can.

We are a classical music tech company on a mission to build the best streaming service for classical music. A service that really caters to the unique depth and complexity of the genre, with a sophisticated user experience that makes accessing classical music easier than ever before. 

We work with all the major and independent record labels and rights holders around the globe and maintain close personal contact with the world’s leading musicians and institutions, from iconic artists to future stars and from great orchestras such as the Vienna Philharmonic to institutions such as the Lucerne and Verbier Festivals. 

IDAGIO is available to music lovers across the globe. Physically we are rooted in Berlin and we consider the German-speaking countries, perceived by many as the cradle of classical music, to be our home base.
