unCLASSIFIED, an affiliate of the Naxos Music Group, a large independent classical record label and distributor, creates playlists. They’ve been doing this for Spotify for a while, and they are now on Apple Music…
As the description says, whether you “need a soundtrack for studying…” As if there aren’t any other reasons to listen to classical music. Oh, wait, there are: there is “Serenity Now,” because classical music is “serene.” Or classical music for running, because, I don’t know, you run better with Mozart? And Supper Club, so you can seduce your date with some subtle Bach playing in the bachground.
I’d suggest that it’s marginally better on Spotify simply because public playlists on Apple Music are completely under their official curators’ control. Which is too bad since Apple Music has actually made some terrific improvements for classical organization. I’d love to see better playlists and even a Beats 1 classical show.
That last bit might just be pie in the sky wishful thinking, but their other shows are often excellent, and seeing classical get the same treatment would be a delight.
