Der Rosenkavalier by Richard Strauss( )

810 editions published between 1900 and 2017 in 11 languages and held by 8,821 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
Elektra by Richard Strauss( )

586 editions published between 1922 and 2018 in 10 languages and held by 7,801 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the courtyard of the palace of Agamemnon, murdered king of Mycenae, Elektra bemoans her father's murder at the hands of her mother, Klytämnestra, and her mother's lover, Aegisth. She vows vengeance. She is interrupted by her younger sister, Chrysothemis, who urges Elektra to give up her obsession with revenge so they both can lead normal lives. Chrysothemis reappears with news that Orest is dead. Stunned, Elektra tells her sister she must now help kill Klytämnestra and Aegisth. When the girl pulls away in terror and runs off, Elektra starts to dig for the buried ax that killed Agamemnon. She is interrupted by a stranger who says he has come to inform Klytämnestra of Orest's death. When Elektra reveals her name, he tells her Orest lives. Servants come and kiss his hand. The dogs of the house know me, he says, but not my own sister. Crying his name, Elektra falls into Orest's arms and tells him she has lived only for his return. Their reunion is cut short when Orest is summoned before Klytämnestra. He kills both the queen and her lover. Elektra begins an ecstatic dance and when Chryothemis returns, Elektra falls dead
Ariadne auf Naxos by Richard Strauss( )

437 editions published between 1925 and 2019 in 7 languages and held by 5,888 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great Jessye Norman is Ariadne, the mythological heroine abandoned by her lover on the island of Naxos. In Strauss and Hofmannsthal's charming opera-within-an-opera, she is joined by Ruth Ann Swenson as Zerbinetta, the flirtatious leader of a commedia dell'arte troupe that--by order of an eccentric patron--unexpectedly finds itself in the middle of Ariadne's tragic story. Thomas Moser sings Bacchus, the young god who wins Ariadne, and Susanne Mentzer is the Composer of the fictional opera. Wagnerian bass-baritone Thomas Stewart makes a late-career cameo appearance as the Music Master

Barbara Bonney sings Zdenka, Arabella's younger sister, and Raymond Very is Matteo, the officer who thinks he is in love with Arabella but unexpectedly finds his happiness elsewhere.

"Dies ist eine Aufnahme, von der man als Hörer sehr viel lernen kann. Es ist gewusst, dass Musik von Richard Strauss wirklich gut klingt, wenn sie von einem Toporchester wie der Staatskapelle Dresden, dem Concertgebouw Amsterdam oder den Wiener Philharmonikern gespielt wird..... Nun kommt ein Dirigent wie Sebastian Weigle daher und legt sich mit den 'Großen"an. Er weiß genau, dass sein Frankfurter Opern- und Museumsorchester ein hervorragender Klangkörper ist, der aber nicht mit den Wienern & Co zu vergleichen ist. Was macht also Weigle? Er akzeptiert die Grenzen seines Orchesters und versucht auch nie, darüber hinaus zu gehen. Vielmehr nutzt er die Chance und liest die 'Alpensinfonie' recht vertikal. Er verlässt somit den sicheren Pfad Strauss'scher Klangopulenz und bewegt sich auf den 'Nebenpfaden'. Und wie ein Bergführer nimmt er den Hörer mit sich und zeigt ihm die ganze Alpenwelt von einer anderen Seite. Hier hört man plötzlich ganz neuartig wirkende Farben, neue Schattierungen, Crescendi und Akzente. Alles wirkt zwar vertraut und erscheint doch in einer komplett neuen Aufmischung, die der Musik unendlich gut tut. Und so fasziniert man von den Einspielungen Karajans, Thielemanns, Kempes und vielen anderen sein kann, man muss dieser Frankfurter Aufnahme allerhöchste Integrität und künstlerisches Können zugestehen" (
