Composer as artist
The ReleaseArtist of a classical Release should always include the composer(s), except when "Various Artists" is used. See below.
Single composer, single work
Ludwig van Beethoven -
from PPC 8601
As with tracklists, we don't enter all caps, but otherwise we use what's printed:
Release title: Missa Solemnis Release artist: Ludwig van Beethoven / Jussi Björling
In release artist field, begin with composer. Then orchestra/choir, conductor & lastly soloists. But use artists from the front cover. In this case, there are more artists listed on the rear side of the case. Create links between recordings & the appropriate performers using Advanced Relationships.
Single composer, multiple works
from CHAN 9052
For the title, fixing caps & errors, joining multiple works with a slash as in multipletitlestyle.
Release title: Symphonie Fantastique / Le Corsaire Release artist: Hector Berlioz / Kungliga Filharmoniska Orkestern / Геннадий Николаевич Рождественский
In the artist field the name will be the current version of the artist in MusicBrainz.
Multiple composers on one release
If there are 2 composers, use both:
Janáček String Quartets 1 & 2
Dvořák from Cypresses
New Helsinki Quartet
from apex 0927 40603 2
Use a slash between multiple composers, just as with multiple titles:
Release title: Janáček: String Quartets 1 & 2 / Dvořák: from Cypresses Release artist: Leoš Janáček / Antonín Dvořák / New Helsinki Quartet
But now we must add the composers to the title, or it could be unclear who wrote what.
- Use the printed version of the composer's name in the title, don't for instance change scripts.
The same principle applies for 3 composers and so on.
When dealing with "samplers" & some compilations, we can't add every possible performer or composer in the artist field. But again, use what's printed on the front cover.
In this case, it's only performers in the artist field: Don't add "Various Artists" for the composers who are not listed on the cover.
Here we are clearly dealing with an "Various Artists"-release:
Performers for recordings
maybe for another page?
The correct way to enter performers in MB is by using Advanced Releationships between the recordings & the performer, and you should always do that.
But we also need a minimum of performers in the comment field, for disambiguation when we search for recordings (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?
