    Question Tagging - STYLES within CLASSICAL GENRE (help?)

    Hi folks,

    I will be posting some questions here this week relating to the STYLES of classical music I have tagged since purchasing 'dBpa' last July. Hopefully I might attract some assistance from some more 'experienced' classical buffs!

    Thanks a lot,

    Paul

    I'm no expert, but Classical music is organised into periods and I often see variations in respect to these periods.

    You might want to start by reading something like this: Classical music

    or this: Classical Music Periods

    Thanks Mville,

    I will take a look ...

    Paul

    EDIT: As I thought might be the case - and is the very reason for me opening a new thread - is that some of the STYLES I have created are not actually listed as being 'periods/eras', simply because they are not, strictly speaking. For instance, 'Minimalism' (eg. Steve Reich) is a term for a particular form of composition/process, but it is not a recognized as being a 'period' (I mean, we do not verbally say: "this is a piece of music from the 'Minimalist' period!").

    Mville,

    I did originally plan to use PERIOD tags - as you correct suggest - last year when I first began ripping; albeit exclusively for CLASSICALs. However, because I used STYLE tags for every other type of music/CD and, of course, PERIOD is not really applicable to: country/Xmas/popular/etc, I decided to do away with it in favour of STYLE (right across the board).

    In addition to this, I did not want to have 2/3 of my CD collection having GENRE/STYLE tags, and the remaining 1/3 having GENRE/PERIOD. Also, I had/have no idea if all playback-devices support PERIOD?, as they DO the STYLE tag.

    Cheers.

    Question Re: Tagging - STYLES within CLASSICAL GENRE (help?)

    Hi,

    To get the ball rolling, here is a list of the STYLES (which I view as being SUB-GENRES) of my CLASSICALs:

    Avant-Garde
    Baroque
    Brazillian
    English Chamber
    Experimental
    First Viennese
    Free
    Hungarian Folk
    Impressionism
    Indeterminacy
    Intuitive
    Minimalism
    Modernism
    Neoromantic
    Neoromantic
    Post-Modernism
    Process
    Religious
    Romantic
    Russian Orthodoxy
    Second Viennese School
    Serial
    20th Century

    All of these come under either the GENRE of: CHORAL or CLASSICAL. The reason I have created this thread is to seek some help, please, in making sure I have placed the correct COMPOSERS within the correct STYLE; and to see if I can whittle down the amount of STYLES I currently have (I am sure there are 2 or 3 which can be moved/substituted).

    Thanks.

    I have charged it up now. I am finishing of the final batch of corrections; then I will test out the SD-card inside it ...

    Oggy,

    I am waiting from Sony Tech. Support to get back to me later this week concerning the maximum GB size of SD-card I am able to use with the Walkman. Hence, I won't be able to fully answer your question until then. But right off the bat, I can see that it supports: Genre, Artist, Album. Maybe other categories appear if and when you have organised/utilized your files/folders on the SD-card to incorporate such additional tags?

    Paul
