The fairy queen by Henry Purcell( )

29 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 768 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 'The Fairy Queen,' two artistic geniuses met. The scenario is an adaptation of William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream; the music is by Henry Purcell, the greatest English composer of his day. The result is one of the first great operas, a dazzling display of music and emotion that has lost none of its power since its premiere in 1692. Much of the music has come to have a life beyond the opera itself: songs such as "The Plaint," "Thrice Happy Lovers" and "Hark! The Echoing air" now regularly grace the concert hall stage, a delight for singers and audiences alike. This studio recording was made with Australia's pre-eminent independent opera company, Pinchgut Opera, in 2003, and is re-released here in deluxe packaging. The cast features the finest Australian singers (Sara Macliver, Sally-Anne Russell and Paul McMahon to name but three) under the direction of Baroque specialist Antony Walker. The period instruments of the Orchestra of the Antipodes provide accompaniment of vibrant colour and immediacy." --

Má vlast by Bedřich Smetana( )

16 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Smetanas Zyklus Mein Vaterland ist inspiriert von der Mythologie und der Schönheit seiner tschechischen Heimat. Besonders bekannt wurde daraus "Die Moldau". In diesem Satz zeichnet er den Weg des Flusses von der Quelle bis zur Einmündung in die Elbe nach. Aber auch die anderen 5 Sätze (u.a. Aus Böhmens Hain und Flur) greifen Elemente der böhmischen Geschichte, seiner Sagen und Landschaften auf. - Colin Davis und das London Symphony Orchestra, zuvor mit Aufnahmen des anderen tschechischen Nationalkomponisten Antonín Dvorak gefeiert, präsentieren die musikalischen Schönheiten dieses Zyklus'. "Nur wenige musikalische Flüsse beschleunigten sich so wie Davis' Moldau oder begannen ihren Lauf mit solch bezaubernden murmelnden Flöten", schrieb The Times über das mitgeschnittene Konzert.

Benvenuto Cellini by Hector Berlioz( )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in French and Undetermined and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Berlioz's opera about the legendary hot-blooded Florentine sculptor and goldsmith is a rarity. But under James Levine's masterful conducting the huge and complex score dazzles like one of Cellini's artworks. Marcello Giordani is Benventuo Cellini, who must finish a statue of Perseus for Pope Clement (Robert Lloyd) by nightfall or be hanged as a murderer and rapist. Against all the odds, including the conniving of his vicious rival Fieramosca (Peter Coleman-Wright), Cellini's artistry triumphs, and he can finally be with the woman he loves, Teresa (Isabel Bayrakdarian)

10 Jahre liegen zwischen den Uraufführungen der beiden populärsten Sinfonien von Robert Schumann. Die heitere 1. Sinfonie mit dem Beinamen Frühlingssinfonie erlebte ihre überaus erfolgreiche Uraufführung 1841 in Leipzig unter der Stabführung von Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy, ein Jahr nachdem er Clara Wieck nach zähem Ringen zum Traualtar führen konnte; 1851 hob Schumann selbst in Düsseldorf genauso erfolgreich seine 3. Sinfonie, die "Rheinische" aus der Taufe. - Beide Sinfonien gehören in jeden Klassik-Bestand, die Interpretation mit dem Orchestre des Champs-Elysées unter Philippe Herreweghe, dessen 60. Geburtstag die Musikwelt am 2. Mai feiert, bietet Hörgenuss pur für alle
