Program notes of (Western) classical music are usually written by musical experts. As a consequence, program notes information may not be very accessible to audiences which are less familiar with this music genre. To gain more insight in the way in which ‘uninitiated’ audience perceives and describes symphonic concert performances, in this work, we describe the acquisition of a dataset of various forms of timeline commentary through crowdsourcing mechanisms. As we show, different audience categories use different vocabularies, and consider different anchors on the timeline to be important.
