Problem with long titles in classical music

I have a Premium account, and I reglarly use offline playlists on my iPhone. I mostly listen to classical music, but the titles are usually very long, so if we have a symphony/concerto with more movements, it is impossible to tell by the title which movement I am listening to.

 

Example:

 

Spotify on my computer shows:

Cologne Radio Symphony Orchestra – Horn Concerto No. 1 in E flat major, Op. 11, TrV 117: I. Allegro

 

Spotify on my iPhone shows:

Horn Concerto No. 1 in E flat...

 

It is not possible to show more than this! I tried all possible ways, and there is not possible to show the whole title. For example with an opera, there may be about 30 tracks, but all tracks are showing identically because the name of the song comes at the very end of the title.

 

Could Spotify make the app better so that it is possible to "scroll" through the title?

Hi!

 

For this specific issue, I suggest trying to contact Spotify themselves as this is probably a bug in their system that just needs to be modified. Users most likely will not be able to fix this on their devices.

 

I rarely listen to classical music, and I also notice this problem, so I understand what you are relating to. I hope this helps you if you haven't already contacted Spotify! Classical music is great :)

Hello kwetzass and welcome to the Community!

 

I do understand what you mean since I always listen to classical music myself. 

 

I would suggest to create an idea and let it get kudos and comments! There is already an idea about long titles, you can add your kudos if you like so http://community.spotify.com/t5/Spotify-Ideas/Show-whole-song-title/idi-p/46173

 

Since this is the help section I am going to move your post to the contribution one.

 

Thanks so much for collaborating and get back to use when you need it :)

Hello!

 

I'm also a big, huge classical music lover. I see this user's problem and agree with it. However, since a few weeks, the track titles in many classical albums have been shortened... too much! Now the track is simply named "Allegro", "Adagio" etc.: so, if I'm listening to the complete Beethoven symphonies, I have to count my way through the list. Which is nearly impossible to do when there are more pieces and it is not a complete cycle (some collections of Vivaldi's concerti, for example),

Hope it can get fixed!

 

Thanks!

If this will not get fixed soon, this is a reason to cancel my premium submission. It's very annoying.

It's almost august 2014 - is there any solution?

 

My wife just lost her mother and wants to listen to some classic music to relax - and now this.... long titles cut down to identical sentences. Totally unusable.

 

Not good.

As a suggested fix could Spotify, provide a "rename" function or "alias" function which allows the user to rename the title just for his account. The rename value would be saved on his/her computer and checked for a matching URL and then display the alias instead of the actual.

This is my problem too... and its April 2016 already... also a premium subscriber. Any solutions forthcoming for us, classical music fans. This is how my screen looks like... The song title is BARELY visible. This has been the nagging problem in iOS too and I'm trying out spotify JUST FOR THIS feature.
