Crediting performers in MusiBrainz

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.

  • 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 Johannes Brahms; 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

The Track Artist field should contain the composer of the work. If there are more than one composer involved on the track, try to find out how the work is usually credited.

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

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
