Parsifal : [ein Bühnenweihfestspiel] by Richard Wagner( )

12 editions published between 1978 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 657 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner's mystical opera makes extraordinary demands on the conductor, but James Levine is renowned for the special affection and authority he brings to this transcendent work. The music shimmers and glows, evoking the legendary world of the Knights of the Holy Grail and the pure fool who brings healing power to the land. Peter Hofmann stars as the questing title hero, Jerome Hines sings the wise old man, Gurnemanz, and Mignon Dunn is the voluptuous Kundry, whose erotic temptations almost ensnare the young hero

Der Freischutz by Carl Maria von Weber( Recording )

29 editions published between 1973 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 601 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner said this early-Romantic gem was the most German of German operas. Its irresistible mix of colorful folklore, the spooky supernatural, a tender romance, and the passionate struggle between good and evil are all captured in Weber's tuneful and dramatic score. The cast in this rare U.S. performance is sensational: Sándor Kónya as our hero, the forester Max, who must win a shooting contest in order to marry his beloved Agathe (the ravishing Pilar Lorengar), despite the dark plotting of Caspar (Gerd Feldhoff)
Eugen Onegin by Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky( )

20 editions published between 1988 and 1991 in 4 languages and held by 594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tristan und Isolde by Richard Wagner( Recording )

14 editions published between 1951 and 2012 in German and English and held by 592 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner's ode to the power of all-consuming love makes inhuman demands on the tenor and soprano who portray the two lovers. Fortunately in this broadcast we have Ramon Vinay as Tristan--a singing actor known for intensity and spontaneity in his stage appearances. His Isolde is the great American soprano Margaret Harshaw in her only broadcast of this role. The wronged King Marke, who loses both his wife and his best friend, is the superb Otto Edelmann. Fritz Stiedry conducts

Messa da Requiem by Giuseppe Verdi( )

11 editions published between 1976 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This extraordinary performance of Verdi's unforgettable Requiem features a dream cast: soprano Leontyne Price, equally acclaimed for her soaring phrasing and the nobility with which she sings the words, is joined by Plácido Domingo, one of the great Verdi tenors of his generation, distinguished mezzo-soprano Florence Quivar, and magnificent bass John Cheek. Under James Levine's inspired conducting, the Met Orchestra and Chorus deliver a thrilling account of this breathtaking score
Israel in Ägypten by George Frideric Handel( )

5 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in German and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Latest release on VIVAT brings Mendelssohn's astonishing reconstruction of Handel's great oratorio Israel in Egypt. Mendelssohn's 1833 Düsseldorf performance has been painstakingly reconstructed from fragments and sources across Europe: the large and colourful orchestra, playing nineteenth-century instruments, produces vivid new sonorities, and the double choir sings magnificently. Listeners familiar with Handel's 1739 version will also find new numbers, significant changes to the order of movements and very different orchestrations. The work starts with a thrilling, pure-Mendelssohn overture, mixing life and energy with moments of exquisitely shifting instrumental colours. There is fine solo singing from solo sopranos Lydia Teuscher and Julia Doyle, alto Hilary Summers, tenor Benjamin Hulett, and bass Roderick Williams: Robert King and The King's Consort are on top form."--Presto Classical website
Requiem by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

15 editions published between 1974 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Never performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra before, and rarely heard in concert at all, the Requiem by Antonín Dvořák captured on this CD from a live concert seems a near-forgotten masterpiece. Dvořák scholar Gervase Hughes cites this work for four soloists, chorus and orchestra as one of the composer's finest sacred creations, 'a deeply moving expression of faith on the part of a composer whose religious conviction never wavered'"--Container

Es normal, lamentablemente, que cuando llegan grandes grabaciones a nuestras tiendas de discos rápidamente se agoten y no aparezcan más. Este registro de "Elias", el oratorio más importante de Felix Mendelssohn, es del año 1966 y está dirigido por el maestro Wolfgang Sawallisch. Acompañan a los solistas, excelentes por demás, el coro y la orquesta de la Gewandhaus de Leipzig, la misma de la que Mendelssohn fuera titular. La versión del maestro Sawallisch es sencillamente una referencia
