P.S.  I should note, in fairness, that Idagio *does* over such user-based playlists, although I only discovered this just a few weeks ago, despite having subscribed for nearly 18 months, as "Your weekly mixes" appears way down low at the bottom of my "Discover New Music" page after may categories of playlists that don't really interest me, like "Trending Playlists" and "Music for Mindfulness..."

However, one thing that I'm still wondering-- based both on this article and others that I've read simply reviewing the Apple Classical is whether either Apple Classical or Presto offers weekly playlists customized based on the user's past listening habits and actions

Don’t know about Apple Classical but Presto does not appear to offer playlists of any sort, neither curated for you nor even self generated. The experience is quite album-centric. I like that - it reminds me of the pleasure of going into a favourite record store in days of old, where the staff are very knowledgeable, and coming out with a treasured album or three - but it may not be to everyone’s taste 😊

Thanks-- that's useful to know.  The way I personally prefer to use streaming music services is really more about discovery of the new, amidst the familiar, like the experience of a listening to a radio station whose programming is generally to my tastes, but where I get introduced to new things mixed in with old favorites. The  r smart-playlists that Primephonic used to generate based on my tastes were really great for this purpose.  

P.S. I also miss some of those country-specific Primephonic expert-curated playlists on countries whose classical traditions I didn't (and still don't) really know much about, like "Classsical Music from Argentina" or "Icelandic composers"...
