I agree - the Classical New Releases playlist has really gone downhill.  "The World of Hanz Zimmer"?  Really?  I don't want to have to listen to "The Lion King Suite" and other such stuff in order to hear the new classical releases are on Spotify.  Same goes for the other so-called new age stuff that is being programmed on this playlist.  I hope someone from Spotify is monitoring this thread....

There has been some improvements on this playlist in the recent weeks, so thanks to whoever has been curating it. I welcome the emphasis on the classical and modern repertoire as well as the occasional foray into instrumental music that now seems to have become the standard content of the playlist. 50+ songs to go through feels a little too much for me every week and I'd be happier if the releases woudl limit themselves to albums. But I'd say the changes from when this discussion started are positive.

I can't help but feel that the Classical New Releases playlist has become a dumping ground for soundtracks and new-age music. I don't mind some challenging, 20th and 21st century music mixed into a "classical" list, but I'd rather not have to wade through Howard Shore or Hans Zimmer or James Newton Howard work to find it. Please, Spotify - create a New Soundtrack Release playlist and a New New Age Playlist so that this playlist doesn't become so frustrating. For a while there, it was looking like someone was smartly curating this list. Not anymore....

With all of the classical music college graduates you would think that Spotify could hire someone capable of rendering a pure classical playlist.

That was the case about a year ago. Now the list is adulterated with New Age and soundtracks.

Very disappointing.
