I would encourage to use structured metadata, and use as much as 
possible web resources (URIs), possibly coming from controlled 
vocabularies, rather than plain strings. I would suggest to use the RDF 
model for representing the metadata. In your example, it could be 
something like:

<rdf:Description 
rdf:about="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symphony_No._6_(Dvo%C5%99%C3%A1k)">
   <dc:title>Symphony 6, II Adagio</dc:title>
   <mo:composer rdf:resource="http://dbpedia.org/page/Dvo%C5%99%C3%A1k"/>
   <mo:performer>
     <mo:MusicArtist 
rdf:resource="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BBC_Symphony_Orchestra"/>
   </mo:performer>
</rdf:Description>

... using the Music Ontology [1] and wikipedia/dbpedia resources.
