Recording/Artist Credits

Official Documentation > Style Guidelines > Classical Style Guidelines
  • Releases and Release Groups:
Artist | Title | Language and Script
  • Recordings:  Artist | Title
  • Tracks: Artist | Title


The Artist field should contain the most important performers who appear on that specific recording. Do not enter the composer here. Composer information will be included in a linked work (by way of the recording-work performance AR).

  • 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].


If recordings of works by different composers have confusingly similar recording title/artist combinations, the composer(s) may be added to the comment field. This way, the composer will appear in contextual search (such as the "Relate to..." dialog).
