I don't think that organizing the classical genre will improve much, as long as Olive depends on freedb and does not update its local database through internet.
Maybe the newer Olives have a better local cd-database (mine has version 1.2.3, I saw version 1.3.2 in my newer Olive 4)
I found cases that the Olive did not recognize a cd, whereas my pc had no problems with it, and cases that the pc found better metadata than the Olive did.
Most people tend to do all the metadata editing with some pc-software, media monkey is popular.

I have about 1800 classical (and some jazz) CD's on my Olive 4.
I do not do ANY edditing of metatags on the Olive: I rip/download CD's to my PC and do all editting there.
I do that, so I have a correctly taged backup/original of my files. (Just in case I want to move away form Olive some day).
I use MP3TAGS. Once you get to know that program (takes a while), it is perfect.
The only thin I edit on the Olive are its mistakes: sometimes it "decideds" to split an album into several different albums. Still dont know why. Then I have to combine them back into 1 album using the very very very slow browser interface.
Even after all these years, Olive has still a lot of improvement to do.
