Coppélia by Léo Delibes( )

35 editions published between 1959 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The rarely recorded ballet masterpiece comes to life under the baton of the great Barry Wordsworth. Swanilda and Franz are engaged to be married, but Franz can't get his mind off the mysterious and beautiful girl Coppelia who sits on the balcony of the house of the suspicious Doctor Coppelius. Franz breaks into the house only to find all is not what it seems, and Swanilda must save the man she loves from the diabolical doctor. Leo Delibes's Coppelia might not have the profile of Tchaikovsky's great ballet scores, but it is every bit as important. It was Delibes who brought the symphony orchestra to the ballet, composing new, rich and memorable music for dance rather than the messy mash-up of popular tunes it had been until then. Rarely recorded in its entirety, Coppelia is a charming and beautiful ballet featuring irresistible and iconic melodies. This sparkling work comes to life in this recording by Orchestra Victoria under the baton of Barry Wordsworth, Principal Guest Conductor and former Music Director of the Royal Ballet Covent Garden, and one of the world's most celebrated ballet conductors. This 2CD set contains the complete score of Coppelia, as well as alternate versions of the main numbers, designed to cater to dancers of different skill levels and physicality - perfect for ballet schools and anyone else who loves to dance along!

Souvenir of a golden era by Marilyn Horne( )

7 editions published between 1966 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The two doughters of Manuel Garcia and Joaquina Stichès, Maria Malibran and Pauline Viardot are the most famous sisters in the history of opera. In their time they were both labelled mezzo-sopranos, but with careful study their voices were able to encompass many parts suns as a general rule by sopranos. Marilyn Horne has recorded a selection from their widely varying roles. This is a feat probably unique today, nevertheless proving that an exceptional artist can still revive an era thout, until recently, to have been abandoned to the past. The sisters di not appear together (Maria died when Pauline was only fifteen), but their repertoires contained many roles in common. Maria can fairly be described as a great singer of the earlier part of the nineteenth centure, but Pauline lived through and took part in the great transformation from Rossini to Meyebeer, Verdi and Gounod. This recording sets out not only to present a virtuoso feat of the present day, but also to be an important historical document."--Program notes
