User:Reosarevok/Classical Edge Cases
For meaningful discussion on how to get the best possible support for "classical" (or "art" or... you know what I mean) music, we need to think of the hardest / less obvious cases we can come up with. This is a place to list those - please add all you can!
- No 3, second movement
- as written, consists of one measure. Performances sometimes are just that one measure, sometimes improvisation, sometimes inserting an entirely different work. Wendy Carlos composed three different extended versions (for Switched-On Bach, Switched-on Brandenburgs, and Switched-On Bach 2000).
The Planets Suite
A movement (“Pluto”) was composed much later by a different composer, but of course could be considered part of the suite. It also makes minor modifications to the end of the 7th part.
Piano Concerto no. 3: II. Tema con variazioni
This movement is made of variations. Most releases set the whole movement as a single track, while some use a separate track for each variation http://musicbrainz.org/release/7ddccdbf-cea8-4725-a685-074523c08d7f .
