They actually play Beethoven's Piano Concerto Op. (not No.) 15.
The joke is she sees Op. 1 and begins playing, but then he types the 5 and Ott begins to play that and Canellakis and (presumably) the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra join her in playing Op. 15.
Told you it was nerdy.
Playback features, for example, need to be able to handle classical music differently, such as when shuffling. It's not just a track shuffle but various movements that would need to play in order. I'm not saying that you can't offer both in a single app, but that would also be adding a lot of "features" that would get clumsy real fast for the majority of the users who don't need/want it.
