Apparently nobody at Apple listens to classical music. To be fair, they have finally made some improvements, both in the iOS Music app and in iTunes, as long as you've entered all of the necessary metadata (on iOS specifically, you need to make sure that the grouping – followed by a colon – is a prefix of each track name). But there are still inconsistencies between the Apple Music catalog and the local library view. It is also often needed to make some adjustments using iTunes after adding Apple Music tracks with imperfect or incomplete metadata to your library, which thankfully works the same way as it does for matched and uploaded music.Ugh! This has been SO ANNOYING at times - being able to read the catalog number and the start of the name of the entire work, with no clue as to what movement each track is... it's laughably bad - hard to believe they would have released it this way if they had had any classical music used in testing. I recall playing Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker for my niece (at her request) and she wanted to hear particular dances, and... there was simply no way to tell which was which.
