Who's behind Classicalstreaming and what's the history?

In 2011 we've started progstreaming ( http://www.progstreaming.com) and we were one of the first to present full album streaming for promotional purposes. Since that time, the shift has changed. Nowadays, streaming is not only seen as promotion (for their CDs, LPs and downloads) but also revenue in itself. The demand from the labels and musicians began to shift too, and hence the idea for a complete website that only offers extended streams was born. 

Is Classicalstreaming legal?

Yes. Please read our disclaimer and privacy statement for more information. Spotify's term of use is here. Bandcamp's term of use is here. Deezer's term of use is here. Please notify us about any inconsistencies you might find.

About the functionality of the embedded players

The Bandcamp-widget plays instantly. The Spotify-widget however will first open your Spotify, and the music will start playing, but you won't hear it, unless you refresh. It's recommended to open Spotify first, and then click one of our widgets. It will then play like a charm. The Deezer-widget will be automatically set to listen to 30'' (30 seconds); once listening to 30 seconds, it will show a log-in. After that, no matter where you listen on Classicalstreaming, all Deezer-widgets run smoothly. Both Spotify and Deezer also offer premium subscriptions, which are free from advertisement. Classicalstreaming is in no way responsible for bad functioning widgets. Classicalstreaming has no association with either Spotify, Deezer or Bandcamp. Our disclaimer and privacy statement applies on all Classicalstreaming website and its social media.
