Unofficial CSG for release & release group names

Status: My research, questions & comments for the upcoming CSG for release & release group names. This is NOT a guideline. It's for discussion. Possible future use: CSG examples that won't be in the official guideline.

The general guidelines for Release group names can be found here: User:kuno/Style/Recording_and_release_group_titles

Use what's printed?

It's mostly like "normal" MusicBrainz.

BERLIOZ
SYMPHONIE
FANTASTIQUE
LE CORSAIRE
CHAN 9052

Don't add composers to the title, fix caps & errors, join multiple works w. slash:

Symphonie Fantastique / Le Corsaire

The comment field

What's different is that we add performers to the comment field for disambiguation (there are more Symphonie Fantastiques (?) in MB). correct? btw Do recordings need performers disambiguation?

(Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra feat. conductor Gennady Rozdestvensky)

as before, only add performers who performs on every track on the release?

Split releases

Classical releases are entered w. the composer as artist. If there are 2 composers, use both:

Janáček String Quartets 1 & 2
Dvořák from Cypresses

New Helsinki Quartet
