Classical shuffle: random order of pieces, but multi-movement pieces play in order

I have a lot of classical music playlists. I'd like to be able to use shuffle mode, but play multi-movement pieces as a whole and in the proper order.

 

Perhaps if playlists are nested like this

Music

> Beethoven's 5th Symphony

> > movement 1

> > movement 2

> > movement 3

> > movement 4

> Schubert "Death and the Maiden" string quartet

> > movement 1

> > movement 2

> > movement 3

> > movement 4

> Chopin nocturne in E flat

> Liszt "Totentanz"

 

Is there a way to shuffle the outer folder (Music) so that it could choose any inner playlist to play next, but the inner playlist must play in order?

So we might hear Chopin then Schubert then Beethoven then Liszt, or Liszt then Beethoven then Schubert then Liszt again then Chopin, but Beethoven and Schubert would always be movements 1-4 in order.

 

Even nicer if each playlist or folder could be set individually to shuffle or to play in order.

I agree.  I am listening to Tchaikovsky piano concerto part one then it shuffle to Rachmaninoff.  Completely throws me off.  I it is difficult trying to find the second movement while driving.

 

Besides Classical, sometimes I am in the mood for a few slow ballads then a few upbeat songs.  It be nice to have some customizable shuffle algorithm - Classical (where it uses the meta data and play the movements in sequences before shuffling to the next song. )  Or custom (n songs of certain genre or mood before shuffling to next set of genre).
