CSG for Tracks and Recordings: Artist Credits

Crediting performers in MusicBrainz

The correct way to credit performers in MusicBrainz is by Advanced Relationships linking the performers with the appropriate recording. This is especially important for classical recordings.

Recording Artist

The Recording Artist field should contain the most important performers who appear on that specific recording, but it is acceptable that newly-created recordings have their artist information derived from a tracklist. Use a comma between multiple artists.

  • If the release lists all performers who appear on the release, be careful to only add performers who actually contributed to the specific recording.
  • If no performer info can be found, use special artist [unknown].

Examples

Cello Suite No. 4 in E-flat major, BWV 1010: I. Prelude Pau Casals

Sonata No. 1 in G major, Op. 78: II. Adagio פנחס צוקרמן, Daniel Barenboim

Symphony No. 2 in D major, Op. 43: IV. Finale. Allegro moderato Boston Symphony Orchestra, Sir Colin Davis

Concierto de Aranjuez: I. Allegro con spirito Julian Bream, Melos Chamber Orchestra, Colin Davis

Lohengrin: Act III, Scene I. "Treulich geführt ziehet dahin" Konzertvereinigung Wiener Staatsopernchor, Rudolf Kempe, Wiener Philharmoniker

Track Artist

Usually in MusicBrainz the Track Artist field should contain the Artist as credited for that track. However, classical releases in general do not have a single track-specific "artist" like pop releases commonly do. In this case, use the composer of the track’s respective work, often printed directly above the track or group of tracks. Do not use the performers as track artist (often listed under a block of tracks); this is not track-specific information.

If you can't find out who the composer is, use special artist [unknown].

  • Use the most detailed tracklist available (e.g. inside booklet on a CD release)
  • If there is more than one composer involved on the track, try to find out how the work is usually credited.

Examples

Partita V in G major, BWV 829: IV. Sarabande Johann Sebastian Bach

Scheherazade, Op. 35: The Sea and Sinbad's Ship Николай Андреевич Римский-Корсаков

Cello Concerto, Op. 85 / Enigma Variations Sir Edward Elgar

  • still missing an example with more than one composer
