The Best Classical Music Playlist For Writers ∣ Writer’s Relief

Many writers find listening to music helps them focus on the project at hand and can even provide inspiration. At Writer’s Relief, some of our favorite music to write by is classical music. Since most classical music is instrumental, you won’t find yourself distracted by any lyrics—or tempted to sing along! And if you think classical music means only the traditional, well-known pieces by Beethoven, Mozart, and their cohorts, think again. We’ve donned our headphones to create a classical music playlist that features some unexpected modern pieces along with a few of the more familiar works.

All of these forty-five tunes are available online and on Spotify, and we’ve included the links for you.
