Classical Music on Apple Music

Mitchel Broussard:

Last August, Apple Music was updated with a new section in Browse curated by Deutsche Grammophon, one of the biggest classical music labels in the world. While classical music fans welcomed the specific focus of the area, many of our readers quickly pointed out the numerous issues that remain for classical listeners on a daily basis within Apple Music, and the fact that they've been there since the launch of the service with seemingly no correction in sight.

This has been a long-standing problem:

Though I use spotify rather than apple music spotify has the same set of problems. I'm now paying 9.99 a month to use a streaming service called IDAGIO that is dedicated solely to classical music. It has a not perfect but much (much!) better approach to searching for classical music by various filter methods and has all the major labels. I hope it or something like it (there is a competitor called Primephonic) persists. Or that apple/spotify catch up.
