for one it would have been nice if the artists / albums "emptied" by
filtering would disappear, so that if I enter "klezmer" in a search
entry I'd endup with klezmer artists and klezmer albums in the artists
and albums lists.

That's the UI design flaw then. If to initiate search user was
required to do something implying browser reset - like press a button
or switch a tab there would be no problem. I'm not sure how could it
be done better though.
