Search is broken

I don‘t Mind on the album my generation is composed by james brown.

James Brown is shown as Engineer in the credits of the album Wasting Light by Foo Fighters.

I search for “Bach Violin Concerto”.

The first 6 albums Roon suggests do indeed have Bach Violin concertos on them.

The 7th suggestion is Bach Brandenburg concertos. Not really acceptable, but maybe ok.

The 13th suggestion is Dvorak Violin Concerto. Wrong. Completely.

The 14th suggestion is Schumann and Mendelssohn Violin concertos. Again completely wrong.

The 17th suggestion is Mozart Violin Concertos. Wrong.

The 19th Brahms Violin concertos. Wrong.

The 20th Szymanowski … Wrong.

and so on.

I have Qobuz.

No reasonable person searching for “Bach Violin Concertos” would expect concertos by Mozart, Szymanowski, Brahms and Dvorak to be found before those by Bach.

When doing the same search in Qobuz itself I get quite a reasonable long list back.

There really is something wrong with the search in roon. “Bach Violin Concerto” is a really simple request. It should be nailed.


@Jez Did you try choosing the funnel in the search results screen and typing Bach in?

This will further refine the results and not give any non Bach results.


I realise I could do that. I feel that I should not have to. I have already typed Bach once. And even if I do as you suggest, I get Bach Brandenburg Concertos.

Are you really suggesting it is reasonable for a search for Bach Violin Concertos to return works by Dvorak, Mozart, Szymanowski, Schumann and Mendelssohn in the first couple of dozen, and to need the major search term entered twice for it to get close to the result a reasonable human being would expect in the first place?

If you went to a record store and asked for some Bach Violin Concertos and they gave you a pile of CDs including ones by Mozart, Szymanowski, Brahms etc… would you think it was a good record store?

Jerry I was just trying to help you find the music you were searching for, that’s all. No point giving me both barrels thanks very much.
