Hiring a professional composer isn’t doable for every creator, especially when you’re working outside of big budget production studios with a tight deadline. To license classical music for upcoming projects, you need a reliable alternative. 

Fortunately, we work with talented artists everyday to stock our library with royalty free classical music that’s easy to filter, find, and license. To make your life a little easier, we’ve pooled together the top classical music playlist and songs in the library today. 

If that perfect song isn’t featured in one of these lists, don’t worry. We’re also sharing how you can use our search and filter functions to find more music options for your project in minutes. 

 

 

Hear our most popular royalty free classical music playlist

Classical music has always been (and will always be) connected to 17th century composers like Beethoven, Bach, and Mozart. But even though these figures come up most when talking about the best classical music, today’s artists are proving that this genre isn’t a thing of the past.

Our Classical playlist features some exceptional classical music from artists like Stephen Keech, Lincoln Davis, and Cody Martin. By selecting the “Sort By” button (pictured below), you can arrange these 50 songs in order of most popular or most recent.

Check out our original orchestral music album "Awyr"

Our music library is home to thousands of royalty free songs, and classical music has always taken up a large portion of the catalog. (You can see all of your options here.)

Among Soundstripe’s classical music offerings is our first original twelve-string album, “Awyr.” This album was arranged and orchestrated by Soundstripe’s very own Adrian Walther, who collaborated with a team of talented orchestra musicians. 

In the video below, Adrian breaks down his process for composing this seven-track album:

Still looking for more royalty free classical music?

Finding the right royalty free classical music for an upcoming project doesn’t have to be a long and frustrating process. Whether you’re looking for a very specific type of song or not, the filter functions in the music library are designed to give you a more streamlined search experience.  

For example, maybe you’re looking for classical music that’s suspenseful and atmospheric but doesn’t use woodwinds instruments. With the include and exclude filters, you can narrow your search to the songs that fit your requirements exactly:

 

 

Another great thing about the classical tracks in our library is that they don’t all fit the traditional “classical music” mold. If you want to combine different types of genres, moods, and other filters, you can

This allows you to incorporate classical music into your projects in new and unexpected ways. So not only do you have more options, but you also have the ability to filter through royalty free music options faster than ever. 

With a subscription to one of Soundstripe’s music plans, you get unlimited access to all of the music in the library. Every song comes with a perpetual license, which means that your use of the music is protected forever — even if you decide to cancel your plan in the future.
