MM5 REQ - Biographies from MusicBrainz [#15576]

Post by gamb2009 » Thu Mar 07, 2019 2:27 pm

It would be nice to have the following option:
When in "Album grid" or "Album & Tracks grid", one have the possibility of getting a biography of the composer or the artist. In my case, as a Classical music collector, I prefer to use the order Last name, first name for composers. Most of the cases MM5 finds the right bio. But sometimes, the biography automatically obtained is wrong or even, not found. So, MM5 offers the choice to find a different one with the option "Wrong artist?" For instance, If you have Mili Balakirev as a composer, you will not get a bio at all. When you choose "Wrong artist?" you will see that Balakirev is there in the list, but under a russian text. If you select it, then you get the correct bio, in english. But, then, MM5 updates the composer field with the new name in russian characters. It is nice to find that the same menu offers the choice to Edit the name, and yo can put back, as you would like, "Balákirev, Mili Alexéievich".

Nice work arround,.. it stays like that with right name and right bio... until you switch to another composer. When you come back to Balakirev... everything is gone.

The requested feature is, then, to provide a way to keep bio and artist name linked and permanent.

Thanks

Please, take this comment in consideration. It would be very nice to have the chance to select the right bio without changing composer or artist name.
In MusicBrainz data base, there is a field named "Sort Name". It would be great if MediaMonkey could also look in it.
Tahnks.
