    Takes forever to download—much longer than before!
  • Full of Info

    Great recommendations which lead to to an Apple Music listen and then a purchase of the cd if the the music is to my liking. Invaluable source.

    It is a focal point of my month. I can’t wait to open the new edition. It brings me great joy.
  • CD Music Gone

    By frankmd54
    Since the latest upgrade all my issues - complete collection - the issue music has disappeared and deleting and reloading does not cure it. If this a change there is no reason to have this subscription. Will purchase the magazine and receive the CD which I have been doing since we know what Apple promises today can be gone tomorrow (iPods to iTunes). Whereas Amazon music keeps getting better (HD music puts Tidal to bed).
  • Terrible App and Even Worse Tech Support

    By Very Good Recording!!!!!
    This app has gone from mediocre to terrible. Every time a new issue becomes available, the app ceases to function and crashes. I have to delete it and reinstall it to get it to work (which means I have to redownload all of the issues that were archived on my device). Given the fact that downloading an issue is a long and cumbersome process (much longer than any magazine app I use). I have reported this on several occasions to their customer support and have not had the courtesy of a reply or fix. Many times have I truly thought of canceling my subscription because of this. I would also give e them a D+ grade in readability. They need to move to article view capability, like Condé Nast publications use, rather than the outdated “pinch to enlarge an article” approach.

    I've been reading this magazine for many years and have always enjoyed it immensely. The app version is even more enjoyable.
  • The world's BEST classical music magazine

    By rich & rosella
    Beyond a huge universe of articles, reviews and links to audio snippets, the articles are really smart. They are not formulaic, the way some magazines can be and they assume the reader is intelligent and well informed. Best of all, we continue to discover true wonders in pretty much ever issue. Music and performers we never knew of, and yet are now among our favorites. Truly the best classical music magazine.
  • Comprehensive

    By Loussier Fan
    But too many supplementary email offferings. Once into a particular issue, though, you're home free.
  • Nice digital music magazine

    By bchopper
    Lots of well written classical music articles. A free CD's worth of music every month. You can't beat it.
