Talk:Classical Music FAQ

From MusicBrainz Wiki

So is MusicBrainz no use for classical music at the moment?

who in the section "So is MusicBrainz no use for classical music at the moment?" is I? MusicBrainz is excellent for classical music at the moment. As long as everyone agrees that it follows the principle of composer and performer much like it is used for "popular" music covers. It would be swell if everyone would interpreted the guidelines in this way.

Does MusicBrainz handle classical music in a special way?

The answer should be: Yes, MusicBrainz does handle classical music in a special way. As opposed to popular music in classical music the composer is used as the artist.

Of course, there should be "Yes". --Pabouk 01:12, 8 June 2011 (UTC)
Special as in retarded? Yes. It has way to many flaws to be taken seriously for classical music. It needs a separate database for Composer, performer and most importantly of all: composition. Now it only has a separate database for the Composer confusingly placed under 'artist'. For now Allmusic is the only logical database in respect to classical music.
Have you happened to look at works and relationships lately? Because that's exactly what you seem to ask for. The artist field is useless anyway. --Reosarevok 16:09, 3 December 2011 (UTC)
I must say, this is indeed more like it should be, as long as we can keep being consistent in the naming of tracks. Didn't really check out Musicbrainz the last few months, hence my confusion.
