I'm not finished w. the stuff below this line, please disregard.
 
 
 
If the liner misidentifies what work is actually on any track, please then note in a track annotation how the liner identified the work, but correctly identify it in the actual title.
 
 
 
If each track's title is presented in multiple languages, only one should be used, and whichever one is chosen should be used consistently for all tracks.
 
 
 
Tracks should be titled so as to be as informative as possible, per what is on the liner, without over-normalizing the titles such that they no longer represent what is on the liner.  
 
 
 
Example:
 
 
 
If the liner presents this:
 
 
 
Concerto for Piano and Orchestra<br/> No. 9 in E flat major K 271<br/> "Jeunehomme"<br/> 1. Allegro<br/> 2. Andante<br/> 3. Rondo: Presto
 
 
 
Then the track titles should be entered as:
 
 
 
1. Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No. 9 in E-flat major K 271 "Jeunehomme": Allegro<br/> 2. Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No. 9 in E-flat major K 271 "Jeunehomme": Andante<br/> 3. Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No. 9 in E-flat major K 271 "Jeunehomme": Rondo: Presto
 
 
 
and NOT as:
 
 
 
1. Allegro<br/> 2. Andante<br/> 3. Rondo: Presto
 
 
 
Please note that it is quite common for the outside cover to only include limited identification information due to space limitations.  Please check inside the booklet to ensure that you are providing as informative a track title as possible.

Capitalization should follow standard capitalization for the language, with the exception of English. English titles should follow sentence style, like any other language! ''(Is this true?)''

[[Abbreviation Style|AbbreviationStyle]] should be followed.  However, the following should remain abbreviated:

==Punctuation==
 
 
 
Standard ASCII punctuation should always be used for the space  , the full-colon :, the semi-colon ;, the hyphen-minus -, single quotation marks ' ', double quotation marks " ", parenthesis ( ), square braces [ ], commas ,, periods ., and all other punctuation.

Unofficial CSG for track names

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

Classical track titles should be entered as they are on the liner, following normal MusicBrainz style guidelines. There are some exceptions, and some things the editor should be aware of when entering "classical" track/recording titles in MB.

Track names are subtiles

On classical releases, tracknames are often subtitles of a multi-part work, for example a symphony with four movements. On the tracklist, it could be printed like this:

Suite No. 1 in G, BWV 1007
[1] Prélude
[2] Allemande
Example from Meridian CDE 84270

And the track names in Musicbrainz will be:

1. Suite No. 1 in G, BWV 1007: Prélude
2. Suite No. 1 in G, BWV 1007: Allemande

This is actually not an exception, just standard subtitle style. Just be aware that it's very unlikely that a track name is ONLY "3. Allegro"

Liner with multiple languages

If each track's title is presented in multiple languages, only one should be used.

Tři moteta pro smíšený dvojsbor a cappella, op. 110
Drei Motetten for double-chorus a cappella, Op. 110
1. Ich aber bin elend [Já pak ztrápený jsem] (Žalm 69)

If I enter a German tracklist:

1. Drei Motetten for Double-chorus a cappella, Op. 110: 1. Ich aber bin elend

Note that we do not translate multiple languages within a title into one; both English & German in this example


Many times only one part of the title (usually keys) is written in more than one language:
Sonata No. 6 in G major/G Dur BWV1019
9. Allegro
10. Largo
Example from Brilliant Classics 93101/21

Let's say I'm entering this in English:

9. Sonata No. 6 in G major BWV1019: Allegro
10. Sonata No. 6 in G major BWV1019: Largo


Capitalization

Capitalization should follow standard capitalization for the language, with the exception of English. English titles should follow sentence style, like any other language! (Is this true?)

(will add example here)

If French CSG is being used, the additional punctuation spacing rules of CapitalizationStandardFrench also apply:

Les nuits d'été, op. 7
2. Le spectre de la rose.
Adagio un poco lento e dolce assai
Example from ??

Observe the space before the colon:

Les nuits d'été, Op. 7 : 2. Le spectre de la rose. Adagio un poco lento e dolce assai

From a different release:
LES NUITS D'ÉTÉ, OP. 7
2. Le spectre de la rose (Alt)
Example from ??

Enter as:

Les nuits d'été, Op. 7: 2. Le spectre de la rose (Alt)
