Article name[edit]

This article should be named "Vaterländischer Künstlerverein" because it's used as a title, without a definite article. Most references cited in the article use that form: Zweifel, Naxos, Raptus, Answers.com, Argerich recordings; Grove uses the wrong form once, but the correct form five times. I suggest to move the article to its correct lexicographical term "Vaterländischer Künstlerverein" and change all five occurrences within the article accordingly. -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 10:55, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

Yes, I did notice during my research for the article that both Vaterländische and Vaterländischer occur in sources, in roughly equal measure. I'm not up on German enough (or at all, really) to know which is correct, so I defer to the wisdom of teutonophones on the matter. -- JackofOz (talk) 12:26, 19 June 2009 (UTC)
Checking the actual printed score, I see it's clearly Vaterländischer. I'll fix it. -- JackofOz (talk) 02:57, 20 June 2009 (UTC)
Mind you, that's not always an infallible guide. I have a score headed "Robert Schumann: Davidsblündertänze". Blunder indeed! -- JackofOz (talk) 08:41, 24 June 2009 (UTC)
