I am about to upload my classical CD-collection to iTunes 11.01 on an iMac with Snow leopard. This works reasonably well. My problem is that CDs (albums) are arranged according to interpret (performing artist) with first name of first mentioned artist (conductor Claudio Abbado under C). I would like to be able to arrange albums according to Composer and even better to be able to swich to artist (in case this goes according to last name). Is there any possibility? When I open info for an album it has the menu "Sort?" (Sortierung in German). Options that might apply are "Interpret for sorting", Album Interpret for sorting, Composer sorting.
If this is the right menu, it appears to me that I will have to tick one field for each album as criterion for sorting and I will have to open all albums to change it.
You see that I am more into classical music than into iTunes.
Any help is highly appreciated.
In the info tab for an album's ID3 tags there is a place for Artist, Album Artist, and Composer. You can fill in all the information then enable all 3 columns in the iTunes browser, in Song view. Then yu will be able to click the column by which yu want to sort the albums. You can also choose how to sort in Album view by pulling down View > View Options and choosing the options you want to sort by.
