So who is the conductor here?,
This review is from: Delius: The Royal Philharmonic Collection (Audio CD)
I've owned this disc for some years but it was only recently that I transferred it to my iPod. When I put it into the computer, I found that the iTunes listing showed the conductor of each track to be Yuri Simonov, current director of the Moscow Philharmonic. I know little about how CDs are produced but I do recall that the deceptions perpetrated by pianist Joyce Hatto and her husband were exposed when the digital information displayed on the CD player named pianists other than Miss Hatto. I suppose that in the case of this disc, there's been a genuine error somewhere but I'd still like to know who actually conducted these pieces.

The conductor here will be Christopher Seaman, as stated on the CD cover. iTunes gets it's information via 'Gracenote'. Gracenote is a service that users (i.e. any person, including you and I) can download and upload CD track information which users manually enter. If someone enters the wrong information and uploads it to Gracenote, then it wont necessarily get corrected, and the next person to pop that CD recording into their computer will get that same wrong info. I'd say from experience that around 25-50% of data that I get from Gracenote needs some kind of correction. Obviously CD booklet printings can sometimes go wrong too, but generally it's very rare. Look upon the internet like a copy of the 'Daily Mail'...only about a third of what you read will be totally correct! Always trust what you can see, or know to be correct, not what a computer (or the internet) tells you.
