Symphony no. 8 by Gustav Mahler( Recording )

33 editions published between 1972 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 782 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first part of Mahler's 8th symphony is built around the 4th century Latin hymn Veni, Creator Spiritus (come, spirit of creation). The second part retells the final episode of Goethe's Faust in which the title character finds salvation. This recording also includes the Adagio from Mahler's 10th symphony and is the final installment of the San Francisco Symphony's Mahler cycle
Der Rosenkavalier by Richard Strauss( Recording )

49 editions published between 1960 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 585 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
Tristan und Isolde by Richard Wagner( Recording )

36 editions published between 1983 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner's revolutionary score changed the world of music with its radical portrayal of an all-consuming passion that can only be fulfilled in death. The legendary Birgit Nilsson sings Isolde, one of her greatest roles, in her second Met season. Karl Liebl is Tristan, the man she loves--and the best friend of the man she is forced to marry. Jerome Hines is the sorrowful King Marke and Irene Dalis sings Isolde's stalwart companion, Brangäne

Pelléas et Mélisande by Claude Debussy( Recording )

23 editions published between 1969 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Star conductor Simon Rattle leads a superb cast in this mesmerizing performance of Debussy's rarely staged opera. Stéphane Degout and Magdalena Kožená are the tragic title couple--lovers caught in a web of passion as strong as it is forbidden. Gerald Finley delivers a remarkable portrayal of Golaud, Mélisande's husband and Pelléas's half-brother, and Felicity Palmer is their mother, Geneviève. Willard White brings dramatic and vocal intensity to the brief but crucial role of the blind old king Arkel
La clemenza di Tito : K. 621 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Recording )

43 editions published between 1977 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Under James Levine's persuasive and loving leadership, this first-rate cast demonstrates Mozart's late opera crackles with passion and drama. The Roman emperor Tito (Kenneth Riegel) is besieged by death plots, a massive fire in Rome, and his best friend's betrayal. The young Roman patrician Sesto, sung by Tatiana Troyanos in one of her greatest performances, is besotted by the vengeful and manipulative Vitellia (Elizabeth Connell). An enchanting Gail Robinson is Servilia, Sesto's sister, who is desired by the emperor himself but in love with another man

Stabat Mater by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi( Recording )

35 editions published between 1971 and 1999 in 5 languages and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Opening the disc is Vivaldi's brief Sonata al Santo Sepolcro, an instrumental work probably intended for inclusion in an Easter church service. This is followed by a Stabat Mater proper, also by Vivaldi. Vivaldi used just the first ten verses of the text, creating one of the most sombre of all settings, here performed by the Canadian ensemble Theatre of Early Music and its director, counter-tenor Daniel Taylor, who in Bach is joined by Emma Kirkby, taking on the soprano part
Symphony no 9 by Gustav Mahler( )

5 editions published between 1972 and 2003 in German and English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Dresden Staatskapelle has a very special tradition of performing Ludwig van Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. It performed the then still highly controversial work for the first time in August 1838 under the baton of Johann Gottlieb Reissiger. Since 1900, the piece has been performed yearly on Palm Sunday, having been popularized by Richard Wagner in 1843
