Title text is truncated

The iOS controller app, both the older S1 and new S2 versions, provides no affordance for display of long titles. See attached screenshot. In the first entry, which Bach sonata for unaccompanied violin is it? Which movement? There’s no way to discern.  How about the Mozart concerto; which movement is which? 

Can we not have a means of seeing the full title? Not every “song” has a short title.

Try SonoPhone (from the App Store), it does a “smart” trim of long names when browsing, showing both the start and the end and uses a small font to do so. In its Now Playing screen it also does horizontal scrolling of track titles etc.
