My Question or Issue

As of today the following request wil result in:

Query: artist:"Joseph Haydn"+track:"Die Jahreszeiten (The Seasons), Hob.XXI:3: Der Sommer (Summer): Ach! das Ungewitter naht (Chorus)"

https://api.spotify.com/v1/search/?market=NL&limit=5&q=artist:"Joseph Haydn"+track:"Die Jahreszeiten...

 

 

 

 

 

{
  "error" : {
    "status" : 404,
    "message" : "Not found."
  }
}

 

 

 

 

 

 

But if i shrink the q parameter to 100 characters it works:

Query: artist:"Joseph Haydn"+track:"Die Jahreszeiten (The Seasons), Hob.XXI:3: Der Sommer (Summer): Ach! d"

https://api.spotify.com/v1/search/?market=NL&limit=5&q=artist:"Joseph Haydn"+track:"Die Jahreszeiten...

                            "uri": "spotify:artist:656RXuyw7CE0dtjdPgjJV6"
                        }

 

 

 

 

 

 

Is this a bug or do we need to limit our q parameter to 100 chars?
