Topic: Potpourri and others
I came across of some Potpourri (Turkish: potpuri (potpori)) tracks.
I was using the Medley Relationship Type before NGS.
Now, as I see, Medley becomes a simply compilation of certain tracks, without any modification(!), so it seems it doesn't apply to potpourri.
I tried using "is a performance of" relationship type too. I see that I have "cover", "live", "partial", "instrumental" options there, but none of them seem applicable for Potpourri.
My current example is a track where 4 songs (works) are performed (not compiled) together without any break between. Song lyrics are also given in liner notes. Work details are not given tho, but I think they are all old traditional folk songs. The track itself is also named as "Potpori" by the artist.
I also thought entering a new Work for this, track but then who will be the composer or lyricist of this new track?
BTW, IMO, there really shouldn't be a "Work-Recording" or "Work-Work" Medley relationship, because works are not physical, thus they cannot be compiled... There should only be "Recording-Recording" Relationship Type for medleys.
As I read from the wikipedia Medley doesn't have to be a compilation, in fact it seems it defines a complete new work.
I really need help for identifying some of these musical terms:
The terms I have trouble are; Potpourri, Medley, Fantasia, Quodlibet, Rhapsody.
As I can understand these are very similar concepts, but really don't know how to enter them in MB.
