Metropolis by Fritz Lang( Visual )

8 editions published between 1927 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The future. Metropolis is a wonderful city, high above the ground its towers stand. The people prosper, the economy is flourishing, the suspended streets are busy. But Metropolis also has a great secret, so hidden that not even Freder Fredersen, son of founder Joh Fredersen knows about it. He is spending his free time in the Eternal Gardens, when suddenly a woman shows up, with what looks like a class of children. They're from the City of Workers, in the depth, Freder learns. "These are your brothers," she tells the children, before she is forced to leave. Freder is so intrigued he follows them into the depth and doesn't like what he sees. The workers are exploited, they must do labor like robots. Freder tries to convince his father to change, while the woman tries to keep workers' morale high by predicting a man will stand up that will mediate. Someone that will use both hands and head, someone that will be the heart." -- This newly restored version of the film is the closest yet to the version Fritz Lang debuted to theatrical audiences in 1927 Berlin. In 2008, a duplicate negative created from an original 1927 Argentinian theatrical print was discovered in Buenos Aires' Museo del Cine. Extensive preservation work on that and other footage, in addition to a newly acquired copy of Gottfried Huppertz' original performance score, and intertitles translated into English from German censorship records, has led to a newly edited story line, with rearranged shots and scenes
Die Schöpfung by Joseph Haydn( )

12 editions published between 1974 and 2009 in German and held by 702 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Haydn gave birth to a new type of oratorio that reflected perfectly the spirit of his time. With German texts, direct expression of feelings and many grand choruses, it stood for the transition from the aristocracy to a bourgeois society, in which music-making in a group was seen as an expression of civil pride. Extremely popular with amateur choirs, performances with a large ensemble became the rule until well into the 20th century. And the 1960 Electrola recording represents this tradition, with a top-class trio of soloists consisting of the great Elisabeth Grummer, outstanding tenor Josef Traxel and Gottlob Frick, "the blackest of all bass singers"

Ein deutsches Requiem : op. 45 by Johannes Brahms( )

5 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in German and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Deutsche Requiem von Brahms gehört in der Musikgeschichte zu den bekanntesten und umfangreichsten Requiem-Kompositionen. Die Texte sind der Luther-Bibel entnommen und setzen den Schwerpunkt auf den Trost der Lebenden für ihren Verlust und die Hoffnung auf Auferstehung. Marin Alsop gehört inzwischen nicht nur zu den bekanntesten NAXOS-Dirigentinnen sondern hat auch weltweit einen hervorragenden Ruf als Meisterin ihres Fachs. Diese Aufnahme gibt eindrucksvoll die heraus-ragende Zusammenarbeit Alsops mit dem Leipziger MDR Rundfunkchor- und Orchester wieder. Sopranistin Anna Lucia Richter ist Preisträgerin zahlreicher Wettbewerbe und hatte zuletzt großen Erfolg in Aufttritten u.a. mit dem Gürzenich Orchester Köln, dem WDR Rundfunkorchester, und dem HR Frankfurt. "Die Dirigentin, die heute das Baltimore Symphony Orchestra leitet, gab ihr Europa-Debüt 1993 beim Schleswig-Holstein-Festival. Seitdem ist sie hier immer wieder gern unterwegs, vorrangig mit den Werken zeitgenössischer amerikanischer und deutscher Komponisten. Dass ausgerechnet Johannes Brahms auf dem Programm des "Zauber der Musik" steht kommt nicht von ungefähr. Marin Alsop arbeitet gerade an einer Brahms Gesamteinspielung, die demnächst erscheinen wird. Für "Ein deutsches Requiem" hat sie sich für die Ensembles des MDR entschieden" (
