Così fan tutte by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Recording )

63 editions published between 1963 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 804 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sometimes the saucy, clever maid knows more about men and love than her aristocratic, sophisticated employers. When the great singing actress Teresa Stratas, as Despina, explains the facts of life to Teresa Zylis-Gara's Fiordiligi and Rosalind Elias's Dorabella, you know the two ladies are in for an education in the way the world truly works. Walter Berry is at his ironic best as Don Alfonso, the cynical philosopher who sets up this "school for lovers." As much as Mozart and his librettist Da Ponte adored women, they weren't above a bit of scandalous humor--just to set the record straight
Tristan und Isolde by Richard Wagner( )

43 editions published between 1972 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 730 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

Die Frau ohne Schatten by Richard Strauss( Recording )

44 editions published between 1977 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Strauss and Hofmannsthal's sumptuous and magical fairy tale receives an authoritative performance conducted by the great Karl Böhm, a protégé of the composer, in his last Met broadcast. The extraordinary cast is led by Leonie Rysanek as the Empress, the "woman without a shadow" of the title, who stars opposite James King as the ethereal Emperor, Walter Berry as the goodhearted Barak the Dyer, Ursula Schröder-Feinen as the hapless Dyer's Wife, and Mignon Dunn as the sinister Nurse
Hänsel und Gretel by Engelbert Humperdinck( Recording )

The Vienna boy's Choir ; Vienna
Der Rosenkavalier by Richard Strauss( Recording )

42 editions published between 1955 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Strauss's poignant fairy tale of 18th-century Vienna is brilliantly realized by a glittering cast under the musical direction of the great Karl Böhm, a friend and protégé of the composer. Vienna's own Leonie Rysanek is the beautiful and wise Marschallin, the woman who knows her affair with the impetuous Octavian (a superb Christa Ludwig) will not last forever. The enchanting Reri Grist sings Sophie, the girl who captures the young man's heart. Water Berry is appropriately loveable and boorish as Sophie's would-be fiancé, the rustic Baron Ochs, who becomes the victim of Octavian's elaborate joke. Nicolai Gedda is luxuriously cast as the Italian Singer
Des Knaben Wunderhorn by Gustav Mahler( Recording )

40 editions published between 1968 and 2002 in 4 languages and held by 577 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Koncertoptagelse med interviews med Thomas Hampson og Wolfram Rieger
Die Schöpfung by Joseph Haydn( Recording )

67 editions published between 1966 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Haydn gave birth to a new type of oratorio that reflected perfectly the spirit of his time. With German texts, direct expression of feelings and many grand choruses, it stood for the transition from the aristocracy to a bourgeois society, in which music-making in a group was seen as an expression of civil pride. Extremely popular with amateur choirs, performances with a large ensemble became the rule until well into the 20th century. And the 1960 Electrola recording represents this tradition, with a top-class trio of soloists consisting of the great Elisabeth Grummer, outstanding tenor Josef Traxel and Gottlob Frick, "the blackest of all bass singers"

Wozzeck by Alban Berg( Recording )

67 editions published between 1966 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Levine, a longtime champion of this groundbreaking work, has conducted every Met performance of Wozzeck since 1974. He brings Berg's revolutionary score to dramatic life in this broadcast, leading an extraordinary cast headed by Christian Boesch and Hildegard Behrens. Boesch gives a heartbreaking performance as the poor, abused soldier of the title, and Behrens is stunning as his faithless and conflicted wife, Marie. Richard Cassilly sings the vain Drum Major who seduces her, and Ragnar Ulfung and Franz Mazura are the Captain and the Doctor, who mock and torture Wozzeck
Johannes-Passion = St. John Passion : BWV 245 by Johann Sebastian Bach( )

20 editions published between 1967 and 2010 in German and Undetermined and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The foundations of Marc Minkowski's career lie in Baroque music, and he has enjoyed a long relationship with Warner Classics, but this Johannes-Passion (St John Passion) is his first Bach for the label. The work's terse drama - here presented through just nine singers - is ideally suited to both his scrupulous musicianship and his keen sense of theatre. The French conductor describes Bach's great masterpieces as 'a journey you have to prepare for meticulously, over a long period of time. You come back from it like an explorer comes back from Everest or the Moon - transformed"
