Content-based music comparison is a task where
no musical similarity measure can perform well in all possible
cases. In this paper we will show that a careful combination
of different similarity measures in an ensemble measure, will
behave more robust than any of the included individual measures
when applied as stand-alone measures. For the experiments we
have used five state-of-the-art polyphonic similarity measures
and three different corpora of polyphonic music.
