The album didn’t identify , as you can see from the folder it contains both works , it exists on All Music in this format too
I adjusted the Artist and Title and re-Searched but no hits.
That was not the question. Given that the album cannot be found, the Composition is “created” on identification (I assume) and the work shows the Composition and indented Movements . The Trout shows this OK despite the album not being identified.
The Piano Quartet still shows a s 3 separate “compositions” and hence in the Composition View shows up as 3 line items. The real problem is that the Piano Quartet does not Group with my other recordings of this work. hence negating some of the value of the Composition view.
What I need is to Select these three items and Merge them into a Composition so that they show as a single composition and 3 subordinate parts. Can I do this.
I am using JRiver as well and can create Custom Tags. I already have Composition set and 100% populated manually. I created “Part” and as an experiment manually allocated the Parts. Lo and Behold Roon picked this up and created the Composition normally.
Populating Composition was fairly painless using MusiCHI Tagger to do the hard work but to now create the Parts is a whole load of Copy , Paste and Find & Replace and is simple untenable for the quantities involved.
I have imported 4500 albums on startup and I still have approx 1000 unidentified, hence a small mountain of corrections to make. I know why in most cases but Merging compositions seems in some cases the only way to overcome Roon’s Shortfall here unless I am missing something.
The main issue is that Roon sees an anotated Folder name as a new album e.g. in a box set CD1, CD2 etc reads fine. CD1 - Piano Sonatas Op.2 , CD2 - Piano Sonata Op.7 … etc cause Roon to see this as a new album which then requires manual Merging and Identification Is it not possible to “Stop Parsing” at CDxxx and treat this as a subordinate disc, when it is clearly a CD folder . For good reasons I don’t want to lose the anotations.
Currently for Classical music JRiver is winning , mainly because I can edit and group Compositions manually.
Hope this is clear as mud …
