Der Rosenkavalier by Richard Strauss( Recording )

132 editions published between 1950 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,744 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Karl Bohm's only studio version of the work was recorded in 1958. When Deutsche Grammophon originally planned to record the work, there were already two rival versions on the market: the Decca recording under Erich Kleiber and EMI's version under Herbert von Karajan. Karajan's recording was made in December 1956 and should have included Irmgard Seefried as Octavian and Rita Streich as Sophie, but in both cases cast changes became necessary: Seefried was replaced by the young Christa Ludwig, and pregnancy forced Rita Streich to withdraw. As a result, Deutsche Grammophon was able to use both these singers for its own recording exactly two years later. It boasts a wonderful cast, with the full-throated Marianne Schech as the Marschallin, Irmgard Seefried bringing a range of colour to the 'trouser' role of Octavian, Rita Streich light and exquisite as Sophie, and a rounded, lyrical portrait of Faninal from Fischer-Dieskau. The recording also reunited Bohm with his 'old' orchestra, the Dresden Staatskapelle, an orchestra often referred to as the Zauberharfe or Magic Harp for the fluent and airborne quality of its sound

Wozzeck by Alban Berg( )

44 editions published between 1981 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Levine, a longtime champion of this groundbreaking work, has conducted every Met performance of Wozzeck since 1974. He brings Berg's revolutionary score to dramatic life in this broadcast, leading an extraordinary cast headed by Christian Boesch and Hildegard Behrens. Boesch gives a heartbreaking performance as the poor, abused soldier of the title, and Behrens is stunning as his faithless and conflicted wife, Marie. Richard Cassilly sings the vain Drum Major who seduces her, and Ragnar Ulfung and Franz Mazura are the Captain and the Doctor, who mock and torture Wozzeck

Strauss and Hofmannsthal's sumptuous and magical fairy tale receives an authoritative performance conducted by the great Karl Böhm, a protégé of the composer, in his last Met broadcast. The extraordinary cast is led by Leonie Rysanek as the Empress, the "woman without a shadow" of the title, who stars opposite James King as the ethereal Emperor, Walter Berry as the goodhearted Barak the Dyer, Ursula Schröder-Feinen as the hapless Dyer's Wife, and Mignon Dunn as the sinister Nurse
