I’ve forgotten the specs. I assembled it myself from components per Roon suggestions. Intel processor, 256 GB SSD. Doubt if it’s pertinent for my problem.

Description of Issue
I select Composers-> Shostakovich-> Compositions. It only shows one (1) composition. But if I select Compositions-> Focus-> Shostakovich, it shows 109 compositions.
I’ve spot checked other composers and have not found this same problem elsewhere; it seems specific to this one composer. I checked for merges from the Settings and nothing for Shostakovich is merged. At first I suspected there might be a Focus set somewhere but I can’t find anything. I tried changing various setting on the edit for this composer. Nothing affected it. I think this problem is relatively new because I have loaded new albums recently for this composer and usually check after the load. I can’t think of anything else. Suggestions?
This can’t be a misspelling – makes no sense and doesn’t fit the evidence. I get to the Shostakovich page just fine. It works fine on the Compositions listing directly, just not from the Composers listing. I standardize all composer spellings based on the Musichi app. And it was working fine before. This is recent.
Ahh! Found it. You got me pointed in the right direction. There were two Dmitri Shostakovich appearances in the Composers list, both spelled the same but one with “surname, firstname” and the other with “firstname surname”. The latter was caused by a single album with the reversed order. I fixed that, rescanned, and now it’s all ok.
The ID is displayed in the Roon Valence page, NOT, in the Roon app itself. If you were to click on the “improve this photo” link in the bottom right corner of the pic, it would take you to Valence web page, where after you logged in, you can see the Artist’s Roon ID.
IMHO, having the artist ID referenced in the actual Roon app, would help users track down issues like Stephen’s.
