I changed recording artists from composer to performers, printed on back cover and labels.
And I stumble a bit with classical terminology.
From Style / Classical / Recording Artist:
“The Recording Artist field should contain the most important performers who appear on that specific recording” ← Who are “the most important performers who appear on that specific recording”? Those that are printed on the cover as the main performers of the album? Or those that are listed for the respective piece (small)?
I added both → Search for Edits - MusicBrainz
…not sure if it should be like that though
Subsequent question: Is the order correct? Should track specific artists be prioritized?
And what means:
“To credit performers properly, you should always link the performers to the appropriate recordings using Advanced Relationships.” ← I suppose that means linking the recording artists as performers to the recordings. Currently only the musicians belonging to the track are entered. The ensemble as a whole is only represented by linking the individual musicians at release level. (some of them also appear as track specific artists)
I would add conductor and orchestra to the recordings if there is no objection
Yes, you should not use release level performance relationships if you know which tracks it applies to. If it applies to all tracks, you just add the relationships to all recordings and not to the release level. It’s only for the ones you’re uncertain of, or credits that applies to the release as a whole (artwork credits etc).
