Description Of Issue
Sorting Albums by Artist gives inconsistent and unexpected results
Name for Artist sorting - Last Name
Name for Composers sorting - Last Name
My metadata has the composer name as the Album Artist and I have ensured that the ‘Artist’ sort name is correct (eg Bach, Johann Sebastian)
Primary artist is set as the primary conductor or soloist which is (thankfully) ignored for sorting.
When I sort my albums by Artist all my (Johann Sebastian) Bach albums are under J (for Johann) and so I would expect Billy Joel to be under B (for Billy) accordingly, but it is actually under J (for Joel). This applies to all my classical Albums (eg see illustration for Joaquin Rodrigo)
It appears that any CD which is deemed as classical is sorted by Album artist name rather than sort name and non classical is by sort name.
Per album, the editing seems consistent:
What do I need to change to ensure that Albums are sorted consistently by Album Artist sort name ?
