Wikidata:Wikiproject Lieder

Other languages:

This project aims to collect all Lieder, Lieder cycles and Poems as well as Composers and Poets related to them. We use the world Lied as synonymous for a vocal work, either solo or choral, accompanied or not, by a piano or an orchestra, based on a text in the tradition of the classical music, either in the German tradition or in any other country.

This project is twinned with the Wikidata:WikiProject Music.

Both projects work closely to have coherent models and rules.

Models Edit

We will work on three different types of items: Poem, Lied and Song cycle. We also have some properties to add to the human (Q5) item related to the works, either composer or lyricist.

Poem Edit

Poem should be instances of literary work (Q7725634).

Catalogue Edit

To add a catalogue and code for each piece, there are two ways of doing it, either if it is an Opus or a different catalogue. For the Opus, we use its own property:

Title ID Data type Description Examples Inverse
opus numberP10855Stringopus number: number that is assigned to a musical composition, or to a set of compositions, to indicate the chronological order of the composer's production6 Lieder aus Jucunde, Op. 23 <opus number> 23-

For other catalogues, we need to use property catalog code (P528) with qualifier catalog (P972):

Particular properties for Lied Edit

Lied should be instances of lyrico-musical work (Q114586269).

Here at the wikidata there are two items for the same concept: art song (Q4797274) and Lied (Q216860). We use Lied (Q216860) as a value for form of creative work (P7937).
