I listen almost only on Classical Music. There is a lot of Classical music in Spotify, but the setup is not good for classical music.
Beethoven is not an artist, he is a composer.
Berlin Philarmonic Orchestra is not an artist, its an orchestra.
The conductor can be an artist.
If there is a concerto, for example violin concerto, its the person playing the violin who is the artist.
And if you listen to Beethoven symphony number 5, it consists of four parts but is one unit. So, if I want to listen to Karajan conducting the 5th symphony of Beethoven, I want to search for that in a more logical way that Spotify allows. Here is an outlibne of a search routine I would like:
The first selection is composer
- I search for Beethoven from the list of composers.
then I should be able to select between symphonies, concertoes, sonatas....
- I select Symphonies.
Then I shoudl be able to select which one (he created 9 symphonies)
- I select number 5.
Then I should be able to select conductors
- I select Karajan.Then I should be able to select orchestra
I select Berlin Philarmonic.
-Then I should be able to select if I want to hear all of it, or a specific movement
I select 2nd movement
And then I am happy :-)
Of course it shall be possible to interrupt my search at any point. If I do not want to select conductor or orchestra but just 5th symphony, Spotify should just deliver a random version of the symnphony, with Karajan or Neeme Järvi or whatever.
This is not possible with the spotify setup...
Since there is so much good classical music in Spotify I would love to have a "classical music"-mode that sorts and selects classical music in a way that classical music fans can use as easily as lovers of mainstream music can select their music.
