Who are we?

Primephonic is a digital music scale-up that has been dubbed by the media as ‘the Spotify of classical music’. Classical music lovers are currently heavily underserved in the digital space. We are changing this by offering the world’s most extensive classical music catalogue, the highest audio quality and the best search in the industry. At the same time, we pay out classical artists in a fairer way.

Primephonic launched its streaming service (Android, iOS and web) in the United States, United Kingdom and The Netherlands in the Fall 2018. In June 2019 we have started our global roll out. Based in Amsterdam, with a commercial office in New York City, our rapidly growing team is home to over 30 passionate professionals of fifteen different nationalities.
