Artist

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.

Disambiguation

If recordings 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).

Examples

Pau Casals
פנחס צוקרמן / Daniel Barenboim
Sir Colin Davis / Boston Symphony Orchestra
Julian Bream / Melos Chamber Orchestra / Colin Davis
