Apple Classical Music launching

The Grammophone reports Apple is soon launching a standalone service catering to classical music lovers who, like me, are frustrated with the “song” based digital services, where composition’s movements are treated as individual tracks, rather than as part of a larger whole, making he whole process cumbersome.  Whether the other big problem of invisible identification (where the metadata exceeds the charactersa allowed) will be addressed, remains to be seen.  The service will support Hi-Rez up to 24/192, but ominously, also “spatial audio with Dolby Atmos”.
Will that be selectable?  Anyone else excited?

@kiwiscott -- I use Qobuz through LMS (Logitech Media Server) and am able to easily build playlists that include albums without having to add track by track.  It also integrates my local collection along with Qobuz material.

And, while I don't build many playlists on Qobuz directly, I was also able to do this through a web broswer at   I just experimented and had no problem quickly starting a Qobuz playlist and added several complete albums with just a few clicks.  LMS can also use these playlists.

Not sure what problem you are having.

Qobuz was relatively good, compared to other services, about Classical.  I dropped them for other reasons.  Apple has been okay but definitely more of a pop music mentality in terms of Artist vs Composer, whole works vs. songs, etc.  I can get where I want on Apple but it takes more effort.  Apple catalog is at least as broad, possibly broader as I found a few albums there that I couldn’t find on Qobuz.  I suspect that Apple’s big innovation will be an improved search engine with essentially the same catalog 

@mlsstl all I want is to be able to put a list of albums together for specific purposes like ‘Late Night Listening’, ‘dinner with friends’ etc. I would like to be able to view those albums by ‘purpose’ and then play just that album. 

adding an album to a playlist is easy but I really want to be able to say ‘play this album’. Playing the album is easy but organizing my custom list of albums isn’t right now. 

@kiwiscott -- still not sure what you are asking for other than perhaps a software program that can read what mood you're in.  In a way, isn't that what a playlist is?  A preselected collection of these albums for background music when you have friends over for dinner, or those albums when you want a late night session?

To be honest, I don't use playlists all that much since what I'm interested in at any particular moment varies so widely. As such, I use Favorites on Qobuz a lot more than Playlists.
