I haven’t done any editing in the classical area, so I’d like some advice. I just added an Evan Marshall solo mandolin release. This includes instrumental arrangements of pop songs as well as several classical pieces. What would be the best way to link the latter to works?
Track 6, “Musetta’s Waltz” - the liner notes describe this as “my serrenade-style transcription of the aria Quando m’en vo’ from La Bohème” . My first thought is to simply link it as an instrumental recording of the original aria. I know that some classical pieces have a ‘catch-all for arrangements’ but this does not appear to be one.
Track 7, “Hungarian Dance #7”, says “The orchestral score and the piano/two hands edition by Brahms were consulted” for Marshall’s arrangement. In this case there is a catch-all work for orchestrations as well as an entry for the solo piano arrangement.
Track 10, “Recuerdos de la Alhambra”, “has been transposed, but is otherwise virtually identical to the original version for guitar”. Here I think I’m safe just making it a recording of the original work.
