Primephonic is a digital music start-up that has been dubbed by the media as ‘the Spotify of classical music’. With the best 100% classical music streaming service we seek to reinvent the digital classical music experience and reignite a global passion for the genre.

Classical music lovers are currently heavily underserved in the digital space, we have the ambition to change this by offering the world’s most extensive classical music catalogue, with the highest audio quality and the best search in the industry. At the same time, we also pay out classical artists in a fairer way.

Primephonic launched its streaming service (Apple and Android) in the United States, United Kingdom and The Netherlands this Fall. Our global roll out is planned for 2019.

Based in Amsterdam, with a commercial office in New York City, our rapidly growing team is home to over 20 classical music lovers of ten different nationalities.

Catalog Intern

The role
Primephonic is developing the most extensive classical music streaming catalogue in the world. The unique nature of classical music requires us to codify the recorded compositions and create a distinguished database of the respective composers, works and artists. As truly enjoying classical music goes beyond listening, Primephonic is also developing a digital encyclopedia on these albums and works. We are looking for interns to help us on our mission to develop the most comprehensive classical music catalogue out there.

As our intern you will be analysing and classifying classical music repertoire data and enriching the metadata around the compositions. We encourage our catalogue team members to explore the classical recordings on our platform and have deep dives on particular genres, eras, artists, composers, conductors et cetera and create content that makes the recordings easily accessible for an average listener. As a team we have frequently changing projects that you can participate depending on your personal interests and your learning curve. The internship will enable you to research and learn about hundreds of classical works you may never have even heard about and to increase your understanding of the history of classical music!
