There are plenty of websites for listening to classical music, but it’s easy to forget that Spotify contains tons of old music, too.
That awkward moment when you type "classical" into Spotify and the top result is Bach, but Bach is a baroque composer.

Bach’s 3,488 songs will take you 169 hours to finish while Beethoven’s 1,203 songs will take you at least 98 hours. All combined, that’s over 260 hours of wonderful classical music to enjoy.
The world was different back then. No 24-hour news. No social media begging for their attention all day long. Going to the symphony for a few hours of music was common — and these playlists can help rekindle that lost bit of culture from years past.
What would Bach and Beethoven think of Spotify if they were alive today? Having their entire life’s work available at the click of a button is incredible, to say the least.
