Status: 2012 Pre-RFC for CSG for recording titles

Classical recording titles should come from the track title on the original release, same as for any other recording in MusicBrainz. The titles should be formatted according to CSG for track titles, but only one language can be used, see below.


Liner with multiple languages

Many classical releases are intended for international release, and the titles can be printed in 3 or 4 different languages. Currently it's not possible to have more than one recording title in MusicBrainz, so a single language has to be selected. If no language is clearly highlighted, follow this list:

1. Language of the country where the recording location is
2. Language of the work (for vocal works)
3. Language of the label

You can only select from the languages available on the release, you cannot use your own translations for recording titles.

Examples

Lascia ch'io pianga
Concierto de Aranjuez: I. Allegro con spirito
Kantate „Ich will den Kreuztag gerne tragen“, BWV 56: Rezitativ „Mein Wandel auf der Welt“
String Quartet no. 12 in F major, op. 96 "American": Finale: Vivace, ma non troppo
