I noticed that many of the Mozart violin sonatas, as well as names of recordings of them, have been given numbers that don’t correspond to what’s given on their IMSLP pages. I made a start correcting these, starting with the work names. Then I looked a bit further and found that all these changes were made about 10 years ago by a certain editor with a reference to a now-historical page that goes some way to explaining the numbering given.
Which numbering system should we actually use? That used by IMSLP (and seemingly Wikipedia), or that described here? The current situation is quite unsatisfactory – there are many works like this whose corresponding recording titles have a mixture of different numbers in their titles.
Votes on my edits to the work titles (for or against) are also welcome.
