In the music tab you can filter the library by genre. I want to list all music except 1 or 2 genres. Is there a way to do that? Like creating a tab or a custom filter I don't know.

Edit > Find > where Genre is not xxx
If you want to eliminate more than one genre, click the + sign to the right of the first set of criteria and repeat.
Make sure that you set 'match' to any.

Created a new tab with a search result with my condition and all is OK until I remove some albums from the library. In the Music tab the albums are removed but in my new tabs the old "phantom" albums are still shown even after a restart... Is it normal behaviour?

You will need to refresh the search to see updated results.

I think a filter with the same criteria would be best for what you're trying to do here.

Other possibility: create a new tab whose content is an auto-playlist.

Steps:
* In the Playlist Explorer, create a new Auto-Playlist with your criteria.
* Make sure that option "automatically refresh the matching tracks" is ticked in the dialog box
* Open a new tab and, in the popup navigator panel, select your newly created playlist

The new tab with the filter applied does the trick. Thanks all for the help!
