What happened to this playlist?  It was one of my favorite things about Spotify and for the last several weeks it has been missing (no change in the playlist).

I suppose you mean this one:

I am wondering about that, too. In the description it still says "updated every friday" but the last change was made on March 1st.

One of my favourite playlists, I hope it doesn't get lost.

I am wondering the same thing about this playlist.  I would check in every Friday morning.  It was one of my favorite features.  Hope it is updated soon.

It is certainly back but there is a different emphasis on the type of music being played there now. A lot of ”soft instrumental” music, not necessarily classical. Something has gone awry...

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.
