Sooo this hits the nail on the head. I use Spotify myself, just because the student pricing is better than Idagio or Primephonic, even though the structure of their database makes searching for specific recordings frustrating.
But what about Spotify's power to introduce classical music to the masses??
I heard through the grapevine a while back that Spotify was going to roll out a beta feature that improved search by opus number and composer. Does anyone have experience with that?
As ever, the only way to have a good music library is to manage it yourself, instead of outsourcing it to a multinational tech company.
