{{Status| My research, questions & comments for CSG Track Titles. This is NOT a guideline. Possible future use: Detailed CSG examples.}}
  
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 titles in MB.
+
==Detailed examples of how to enter classical track titles in MB==
 
+
I've tried to copy the tracklists exactly as printed on the releases.
==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 on the back side of the CD jewel case:<br/>

===Bach: Cello Suites===

''This is similar to subtitle style for relases, the part after the track number is only a subtitle.''

Guidelines in effect:
*It's ''very'' unlikely that a track name is only "III. Allegro"
+
*CSG/Track Title: subtitle-style
*For artist credits, we use those printed. It's often the same as the release artist-field. ???
+
*CSG/Language English: "no." should be lower cased
*''Or only performers? or only composer, like pre-NGS? (also see next example)''

==Liner with multiple languages==

===Translated title===
If the title is presented in multiple languages, only one should be used.

(must check which version is performed)
  
 
'''Tři moteta pro smíšený dvojsbor a cappella,''' op. 110<br/> Drei Motetten for double-chorus a cappella, Op. 110<br/> 1. Ich aber bin elend [Já pak ztrápený jsem] (Žalm 69)<br/>

With the information given, I can choose to enter an official tracklist in either Czech or German.<br/>
+
*Use only text from the liner for an official tracklist
German:
 
<pre>1. Drei Motetten for Double-chorus a cappella, Op. 110: 1. Ich aber bin elend</pre>
 
Czech ''(removing the brackets that were used to separate the 2 languages)'':
 
<pre>1. Tři moteta pro smíšený dvojsbor a cappella, op. 110: Já pak ztrápený jsem (Žalm 69)</pre>
 
 
 
Don't translate, only use text from the liner. In the German example above, some words are in English ("for Double-chorus"). Just leave them in. If you want to add a translated tracklist, see below for information about pseudo-relases.<br/>
 
Also it's important to be consistent within a tracklist. If you use the German text from the liner for track 1, don't switch to the Czech version for track 2.<br/>
 
  
  
Many times only one part of the title (usually keys) is written in more than one language:<br/>

Also note that we standardize the formatting of the catalog number (following that particular catalog). ''link to Wikipedia goes here. or maybe we must do our own wikipage'' If in doubt, just leave it as it is on the liner.

Status: My research, questions & comments for CSG Track Titles. This is NOT a guideline. Possible future use: Detailed CSG examples.

Detailed examples of how to enter classical track titles in MB

I've tried to copy the tracklists exactly as printed on the releases.

Bach: Cello Suites

Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)
Suites for Solo Violincello BWV 1007-1012
Volume 1 Suites 1 - 3
Transcribed for viola and played by Simon Rowland-Jones

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

Enter as:
1. Suite no. 1 in G, BWV 1007: Prélude
2. Suite no. 1 in G, BWV 1007: Allemande

Guidelines in effect:

  • CSG/Track Title: subtitle-style
  • CSG/Language English: "no." should be lower cased



Bach: St John Passion

St John Passion
Johannespassion
Passion selon saint Jean
BWV 245
[snip a page with performer info]
Parte prima
Part One . Erster Teil . Première partie
1 No.1 Chorus Herr, unser Herrscher
Veritas 7243 5 62019 2 7

English version (only complete language) is entered as:
1. St John Passion, BWV 245: Part One, no. 1: Chorus: Herr, unser Herrscher

Guidelines in effect:

  • CSG/Track Title: subtitle-style
  • CSG/Language English: comma & space before catalogue
  • join "section" & part with comma?
  • "separate sections of a title with colon?" We need a guideline for what to do when different sections of a title is originally separated only by different font styles.

Note that according to Wikipedia, both "St John" & "St. John" are correct.

  • maybe Part One, no. 1: Chorus. Herr, unser Herrscher
  • Chorus "Herr, unser Herrscher" would work here, but may create confusion in tracklists where "chorus" is left out (in old CSG there was a tendency to put quotes around all titles).


Compilation release: Berlioz, Wagner

Side 1:

Hector Berlioz (1803-1869)
"Hail, all hail to the Queen,"
from "Les Troyens" (translation Edward J. Dent)

Richard Wagner (1813-1883)
"Träume" - "Schmerzen" (1)
from the "Wesendonck" Lieder
Philips 69588 011

(1) was used on the cover to indicate a performer.
Enter as:
1. "Hail, all hail to the Queen," from "Les Troyens"
2. "Träume" - "Schmerzen" from the "Wesendonck" Lieder

Guidelines in effect:

  • CSG/Track Title: subtitle-style
  • join lines if a title is printed on more than one line
  • leave out librettists & composers from a title


Translated title

(must check which version is performed)

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)

  • Use only text from the liner for an official tracklist


Bach Edition: Keys in English/German

Sonata No. 6 in G major/G Dur BWV1019
9. Allegro
10. Largo
from Brilliant Classics 93101/21

English is the only complete language available:
9. Sonata No. 6 in G major, BWV 1019: Allegro
10. Sonata No. 6 in G major, BWV 1019: Largo

Dvořák: From Cypresses

Antonin Dvořák
From Cypresses, B.152
9 No.2 Death reigns in many a human breast
10 No.3 When thy sweet glances on me fall
apex 0927 40603 2

9. From Cypresses, B. 152: No. 2: Death reigns in many a human breast

Berlioz: Les nuits d'été (Philips)

LES NUITS D'ÉTÉ, OP. 7
Gedichte von Théophile Gautier
1. Villanelle (Tenor) 2. Le spectre de la rose (Alt)
Philips 6500 009

Enter as (note that it's a German release):
1. Les nuits d'été, op. 7: Villanelle (Tenor)
2. Les nuits d'été, op. 7: Le spectre de la rose (Alt)

Guidelines in effect:

  • CSG/Track Title: subtitle-style
  • CSG/Language German: "op." lovercased?
  • (CSG/Track Title: roles in brackets)

Berlioz: Les nuits d'été (DG)

Les nuits d'été, op. 7
Poésies de Théophile Gautier
1. Villanelle. Allegretto
2. Le spectre de la rose.
Adagio un poco lento e dolce assai
3. Sur les lagunes. Lamento. Andantino
Deutsche Grammophon 2532 047

This is a multi-language release, but only the word "Seite/Side/Face" is written in more than one language. The difference between a English/German & French would be how to capitalize the word "opus" (if it is something else than "op." in French?) Or does French make more sense here because of "Poésies de Théophile Gautier"?


=Sjostakovitj: Piano Concerto No. 1 (1 track, 2 mvts)

Piano Concerto No. 1 in C minor, op.35
(Concerto for piano, trumpet and strings)
Raymond Simmons — trumpet
[2] I Allegretto
[3] II Lento
[4] III Moderato —
IV Allegro con brio
Decca 436 239-2

Enter as:

(iii) Main Theme
Windsong International KOR042

3. "Superman" Suite: (I) March of the Villains (II) Can You Read My Mind (Love Theme) (III) Main Theme

  • or: I. March of the Villains / II. Can You Read My Mind (Love Theme) / III. Main Theme


Bach: St. Matthew Passion (cover vs. booklet)

Cover:
[2] Gerne will ich mich bequemen
(Matthäuspassion)

Booklet (tracklist):
Matthäuspassion BWV 244
St. Matthew Passion - Passion selon Saint-Matthieu
[2] 23. Arie >>Gerne will ich mich bequemen<<
Text: Picander (= Christian Friedrich Henrici)
Deutsche Grammophon 463 518-2

2. Matthäuspassion, BWV 244: 23. Arie >>Gerne will ich mich bequemen<<

No changing of the quotes here, use the printed version. Previously only double-quotes were allowed.


  • CSG/Track Title: use the more detailed version (inside the booklet)

Rare case: mixing leaflet & cover data

cover:
Kreisler: Complete Arrangements & Original Works, including:
'A May Breeze' (from Mendelssohn) • Romanze Op. 94 (from Schumann) • Sérénade Espagnole Op. 20 No. 2 (by Glazunov) • Ballet in G (from Schubert's Rosamunde) • Larghetto (from Weber's violin sonata) [snip] and many more

leaflet:
1. 'A May Breeze' (Mendelssohn) • 2. Romanze Op. 94 (Schumann) • 3. La Précieuse in the style of Couperin* [snip] 8. Ballet in G (Schubert) • 9. Larghetto (Weber) [snip]

As we can see the tracklist on the cover is incomplete, but some songs had more information than in the booklet. Use the more informative version:

1. 'A May Breeze'
[snip]
8. Ballet in G (from Schubert's Rosamunde)
9. Larghetto (from Weber's Violin Sonata)

For tracks 8 & 9 I used the variant as printed on the cover (back).
