hHELLO! I am in the generous mood and want to share some of my discoveries exploring the fantastic world of classical music on spotify.
I want to make several calenders from different angels, and hopefully inspire people to start or continue their own travel in this wonderfull landscape. But unfortuantly also a world full of multicloned bad quality issues. I think that is a shame since many peoples entrance to classical on spotify goes through those "classical music for relaxing your dog", 100 top classical hits to make your baby want to save for a mustage" and so on.
This autumn the pushing of such issues has exploded. Make up your own mind why, I have my own thoughts. The earlier very usefull composer pages on spotify even started to list OFTEN 100ds of these issues under each year. Here spotify have turned this week, so the 60% trash on f.eks Antonín Dvořák comes later down, but only a few quality records appear under the first year-sorting: the rest comes mixed wit the enormous ammount of trash issues. Those trash issues have improved remarkably in sound quality the last 2 days, at least by me ( I am totaly mad and paranoid, I know, but watch out!: They blur abd manipulate the sound digitaly in a mixing bench! That can pinpointed and be curated for groups or users.
Well, enough anger ( STOP AXING of appfinder and KILLING of Soundrop! )
Playlist net is still a very good sight, but not totally industry-independent I think. But their collections simular to the trash issues ( in name ) can be remarkably good in sound and interresting in collection.
In these dark and cold days I will dayly present 5 of these lists, and 5 counterparts of ISSUES not playlists from the spotify catalouge (in praksis playlists)
Classical Music for Twilight client
Naxos is quality, and as a low-prise label. they started much of a revolution in the 80s and 90s. The days of hype, and limited selection and people running out to bay bad versions of 4 seasons to the new format cd-s rediciolose high prize compared to vinyl.
Naxos often used brilliant artists and ensembles from eastern europe, but also less known, but in my oppinion at least as good performances from f. eks Ireland and Scottland. They browdened the quality,accessability and richness in every aspect.
This is a very good collection, mostly with 1995-2005 recordings. And the last ten years developement in sound and studio ingeneering is formidable, so its not the cream in that aspect, but still very good, and very good performances, and very varied in style periode and type of work and instruments
Actually a purchaded issue, 5 hours for 5 pounds. good.
Then you mabe can avvoyd the always digitally blured CLARE THE LUNE (2004, but sounds like 1960, or not really: a strange WRAPPED IN COTTON feel, that I hardly find in any real issue, any time. But you must again forgive my total paranoya suggesting a criminal industry)
Hmm CONSPIRATION! ;-))) Cant make embedded showing of my own. playlists. New last 24 hours.
Oh my goud, this is insulting and criminally horrible. Like a pigtald 5 years old --rehersal,only -worse.
-And a funny experiance: Ultr------a-cotton-packed sound...then suddenly quite cleare high tones cutting like knifes out of the right speaker. Check your equipment whoever you are!
This is no joke! The trouth about lossy versus losless ( Normal people do not hear any differense when the lossy is equal to 190, and sertainly not at 320. ) (so they have to make the lossy sound worce) GREED
SAME PRIcE AS THE BRILLIANT NAXOS ISSUE ABOWE with a 5th ow playing time,and a 1000d of quality!
The swindle grows bigger an bigger in my eyes.
It is not Spotify, it is the industry! Same trash on WIMP. But they are all owned and controled by the industry
