Classical Collection

The greatest classical music reimagined for media

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 editors and content creators in mind. This makes it easy for you to add famous classical melodies, themes and builds to your work.

Listen to the four albums

The first album in the collection contains some of the most recognisable symphonic orchestral works, and was recorded with full orchestra and choir in the cavernous Abbey Road Studio 1 - the largest purpose built recording stage in the world. The pieces range from 18th century Mozart through to 19th century Romantics, such as Beethoven and Richard Wagner.

With tracks varying from magnificent and opulent to fiery, fast and furious, each one has its own twist to help editors easily get inside the music. Find out more

Picking up from where Symphonic 1 left off, this album features more pieces by Romantic heavyweights, including Tchaikovsky, Saint-Saens and Grieg.

The album encompasses both rousing anthems and delicate melodies, all arranged with editing in mind. Find out more

For our chamber music series we moved into the more intimate sounding Studio 2 at Abbey Road. Recorded with a chamber orchestra, string quartet and soloists, Chamber Music includes Baroque favourites The Four Seasons and Air on a G String.

With hints of humour as well as delicate compositions, Chamber Music is suitable for a wide range of production genres. Find out more

The fourth album in the collection contains immediately recognisable vocal works from famous operas and oratorios, including The Barber of Seville, Madame Butterfly and Carmen. It was recorded with a symphony orchestra, operatic soloists and full choir at Abbey Road Studio 1.

It also includes a moving rendition of Ave Maria and a completely new reworking of Liszt’s Liebesträume with voices. Find out more
