I would charactorize the music now on the Classical New Releases more as "New Age" with perhaps a classical influence. But cerainly not the same pure classical music that I have enjoyed on this playlist over the last four years.
That's too bad. I hope that they will bring back pure classical.
Indeed ! This playlist was one of my favorite features. I was always looking forward to it every Friday, but now...? it’s pretty much useless! Mainly a selection of New Age nonsense. Very disapointing :(
Yep, it's back but is now mixed with a bunch of "new age"-like fluff that's really out of place. I reached out to Spotify support and the agent agreed to pass this thread onto the maintainers of the playlist.
I have to agree with the other posters that the changes made to the character of this playlist are very disappointing. Every week I was looking forward to the selection of new releases which always seemed to have a good mix of different classical genres. It was very enjoyable to listen to and to discover new things. I suppose the new style has been implemented to appeal to a wider audience; but there are already plenty of lists with a more popular bent on classical music. Please bring the old style with its wider range of classical music, I am sure there are many others who miss it as well.
