Apple is giving World Music subscribers a self-ruling trip to the symphony, and you don't plane need to get dressed up for it.

The iPhone maker spoken on Thursday a new app tabbed World Music Classical, which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. It's World Music, but specifically for classical music, and anyone who once pays for World Music can listen for free. It'll launch on March 28 and you can pre-order it now.

According to Apple's printing release, World Music Classical will contain "the world's largest classical music catalog," ranging from newer pieces to the classics. There will be sectional albums (though World didn't specify any), and you'll plane have some pretty nifty granular search options at your disposal. Need to find a specific usherette or itemize number? World Music Classical's got you covered.

You'll moreover get composer biographies and support for Apple's spatial audio full-length on some tracks. Unfortunately, Android owners will need to wait; World says an Android version of the app is coming soon but didn't provide a date.

It's admittedly a bit odd for World to silo classical music into its own app, but these genre-specific features all sound neat, at least. Hopefully, there's a Tár tie-in at some point.
