Classical Collection - best in sync
- 22 May
The Classical Collection features the world’s most iconic classical music, reworked specifically for media use. For the first time, each piece has been carefully arranged, recorded and mixed with an editor, producer or music supervisor in mind. This makes it easy for you to add famous classical melodies, themes and builds to your work.
We think the Classical Collection marks an evolution in music for sync, and can’t wait for you to discover a new way of using classical music in your projects. Here’s a selection of previous syncs from the Collection.
