Bissie - I think the cover submitted for BIS-SACD-1890 is incorrect.

A new double SACD with an encompassing Stravisnky program. As per the cover, it's a "Limited Edition." But as to the provenance of these assorted recordings, it's anyone's guess...

According to the description text on Amazon France, these are historic live recordings

"Stravinsky, ou la permanence de l'inspiration russe, de 1910 où il vivifie les mirages de l'orchestre selon Rimski-Korsakov jusqu'à l'usage du dodécaphonisme (requiem canticles). Les Shakespeare Songs, de 1953, toujours peu connus, font montre en sus d'un dépouillement et d'une économique webernienne. L'interprétation de l'Oiseau de feu, dans sa version intégrale, est une des plus belles d'une discographie pourtant riche, mais la Philharmonie tchèque demeure une phalange sans équivalence, miraculeuse, lors d'un concert public dans le vaste Palais des congrès à Prague. Rares sont les versions des Noces qui atteignent l'authenticité qu'obtint Zdenek Kosler, chef trop tôt disparu alors qu'il avait la carrure pour assumer l'héritage de Karel Ancerl et de Vaclav Neumann. Un autre concert public mérite l'immortalité, celui du célèbre ensemble des Boston Symphony Chamber Players en visite dans la vieille Europe. Hommages au quatuor de Tokyo, alors conduit par Peter Oundjian aujourd'hui chef d'orchestre."

Oh dear!! I would tend to agree with that opinion, but I feel quite sure that I did enter the correct one. I looked at it after entering, at least I think I did.

Well, the problem is that I cannot change anything - el Sistema doesn't make that possible.

zeus, what do we do now??? Can I send the picture to you?
And can you please fill in on 1867 that it is released and thereby complete it?

To those submitting titles to the database:

Would it be possible to submit the title in a way that makes it appear in its correct place in the library? If I am not mistaken, the title determines an entry's place in the library (someone correct me if that's wrong). Two random examples:

BIS's new SACD of music by "Édouard Lalo" (thus the title) will inevitably end up under "E" in the library. "Lalo, Édouard: Concertos" would be preferable. Similarly, instead of "Stephane Deneve conducts Debussy", which may appear under "S", "Debussy: Orchestral music / Deneve, RSNO" would have been preferable.

Thank you!

The title here generally reflects that used by the creator of the disc, not something that is necessarily designed to sort properly in one's library. For the latter I added a search facility and the work index.

Dear Cicero,

that is an excellent point, one, which I will adhere to in future, unless the SACD has a specific title of its own, like "A Summer Evening" or similar.

Thank you!

The problem with the organization of titles has been pointed out a few times before, including offers from members to help Zeus correct some of the worst offenders. Unfortunately, like every other useful suggestion here, to no avail.

The reason behind this is that Zeus (& others submitting info to the site) are reflecting what the record companies themselves give as the title for their discs.

For browsing, have you tried using the "Search" facility on the "Show" drop-down list of "My Library"? That returns all discs with, say, Ravel on the disc whether listed in the title or not* - how good is that?!?

*: providing enough detail of the works are known for them to have been added by Zeus or myself.

You can now rename each and every title in your library however you like and they will sort accordingly. Select the titles you want to change and click on "Rename selected". Only you will see these changes though and only in your library.
