RFC: Classical Release Artist Style#Mixed recitals by a performer or group author: lorenz pressler

Mixed recitals by a performer or group

In cases where a release features a main performer or group and contains works from multiple composers, that performer or group may be designated the ReleaseArtist, with each TrackArtist assigned to the appropriate composer. If the release has more than one performing artist the main artist has to be clearly indicated on the cover-sleeve.

Examples
Favorite Encores (feat. piano: Vladimir Horowitz)
Horowitz is performing works from different composers. No other performers. His name is printed big on the sleeve.
Black Angels (Kronos Quartet)
The Kronos Quartet is performing works from different composers. No other performers. The name is printed big on the sleeve.
Passion of Callas (disc 1)
Callas performs vocal on every track featuring different composers, conductors, orchestras and also other vocalists. Callas is part of the release title and main performer.
However, on a release like 3 Masses of the 20th Century (Mikaeli Kammarkör, Anders Eby) there is no clear choice for primary performer. It must remain under various artists.

Important notes:

  1. Do not create new Artists for performer collaborations (such as "Herbert von Karajan & The Berlin Philharmonic.")
  2. If there is no clear indication for a main performer on the cover-sleeve it must remain under various artists.
  3. Also, do not use this style for conductors who are also composers (such as Leonard Bernstein or Pierre Boulez.)
  4. This recital style does not apply to releases with works by only one composer, however much they might emphasize the performer.
