How to sort classic records
Default How to sort classic records

My sets most of the time were either absurdly weird and non-fitting, or dead-boring (for the audience) – hawtin, x-103, tikiman, like a tim to name a few How to sort classic records

But my challenge is how to sort the classic… haha

i organized my classical records by the birthday of the composer
so its nice overview from early monophonic choral music, polyphonic, medieval,
early renaissance, mainly i have baroque, and viennese classicism, not much romantics,
very little modern
if many composers are on the lp, i still place it under first on the list
otherwise you will have many categories, i have one, chronology

I like that method too
I suppose you‘re being quite strict since sorting is sorting and 31.12.1000 < 1.1.1001…

How to sort classic records
I gathered them in type. Like Symphonies, Choir, String quartets etc. I learned how the back looked for a certain record. That strategy was carried over to my CD collection (+1k) and worked there also. Now, as I have ripped all of them to disk, I use search. I don't know - maybe was the old access times lower

When it comes to rock music, that is strictly alphabetical based on the groups name.

Ripping all that to disks would take too long...

Default A good memory helps a lot...

My way of sorting them is, just to remember where I placed them last.

I do not have lots of records approximately 750 or may a few more or less, never actually counted these at home.. But I have photographed and catalogued on my computer and mobile phone.. So I know or at least can check what Music I have at home.

There are 4 different stashes *of course standing upwards* for the ones used most and than less and less and seldom.. The ones I do not listen too *Approximately 200* is a separate Place, and that works well, because there is no one else who mixes them up. My wife she does not even touch the records, nor the CD's..

In the Shop where I associated with, we have about between 50'000 - 100'000 Records on two floors.. There these are sorted by the kind of Music, and then by Artists..

Special place for the Expensive ones, where prices exceed 100USD / Record and there are several. another special place for the 5LP's for 10Dollars and so on.. easy to find any thing when in stock for everybody

Happy Weekend..

I organise my records according to how I would think of the record to find it.
So in general it would be by composer. If it's a compilation with several composers, I would file it under the composer of the composition that's most salient to me on the record. There are some primary instruments, artists and conductors that I will file together in sub-groups. And some genres of classical music that I have a few record of that will be filed together.



It makes sense to me, and I can find the record I want to find. And that's all that matters to me.

Within the general heading of its genre (classical, jazz, rock etc.) it's by the reason for keeping the record. If it's the composer , then that. If it's the artist, then that. If the instrument , then that. etc etc.

Will following method work ?

Since people get mood to listen to a particular 'form of music'
1) Make main sections depending on 'Form of music'
Example |Opera|ORCHESTRA|Symphony|
2) The sub division in above main section would be alphabetically arranged composer or performing artist.
3) If any further arrangement needed make sub-sub division .
4) Idea is to follow a pattern in each category to easily access <Music form><Artist><Particular piece>

I understand there would be lots of types of music which would be hard to categorize. But a consistent patern would make things easier.

I am clueless about various classical music so dont go by names I have typed.
