That’s actually an application for ID3v2’s TSOP field. Everything else is a hack, but sadly I don’t know a usable ID3 editor which supports it.

From <http://www.id3.org/id3v2.4.0-frames.txt>:

TSOA
The 'Album sort order' frame defines a string which should be used
instead of the album name (TALB) for sorting purposes. E.g. an album
named "A Soundtrack" might preferably be sorted as "Soundtrack".

TSOP
The 'Performer sort order' frame defines a string which should be
used instead of the performer (TPE2) for sorting purposes.

TSOT
The 'Title sort order' frame defines a string which should be used
instead of the title (TIT2) for sorting purposes.
