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 composer and the most important performers who appear on that specific recording. Begin with composer, separated from the featured performers with a semicolon. Use a colon between multiple performers.

  • 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, just use the composer.
