    I do this all the time.

    Yes, that's all true.

    I find it most helpful to consider the "album" tag really "release". This helps with both classical and contemporary music, because it's the release which tends to dictate most other associated metadata. For example, differing track lists, differing cover art and so on.

    Whether you consider the symphony name as the album [release] name depends on the release. As suggested, and as often evidenced by FreeDB data, you sometimes therefore end up pushing more information into the album [release] name to distinguish it; such as performer names. This gets tricky!
