Don Giovanni by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

30 editions published between 1979 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

58 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 1,387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Messiah by George Frideric Handel( )

82 editions published between 1934 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The German conductor Hermann Scherchen (1891-1966) recorded Handel's Messiah twice: his first recording, which is presented (by the way, it was the first uncut release of the work), was made with an English case in September 1953, a second version in stereo was recorded in Vienna during April 1959 with an international cast including Pierrette Alarie, Nan Merriman, Leopold Simoneau and again Richard Standen. The earlier recording is generally regarded as the finer one. Scherchen's unpretentious and transparent sound together with an often unusual choice of tempos was a sensation at the time the recording was released and still convincing today
The planets by Gustav Holst( )

76 editions published between 1965 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few composers have achieved such success with a single work as Holst with The Planets. Each movement expresses the planet's supposed astrological character, and the colorful orchestration and memorable melodies ensured its immediate and ongoing popularity. It's hard to believe now that it was a groundbreaking work, a huge multi-movement piece that finally fades into ethereal silence as wordless voices disappear into outer space

Piano concertos by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

6 editions published between 1979 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 831 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die dritte SACD dieser Serie bringt neben dem Konzert Nr. 17, einem der wenigen Klavierkonzerte, die Mozart für sich selbst als Solisten schrieb, auch ein sehr bekanntes: Das Konzert Nr. 26, genannt das "Krönungskonzert". Angeblich aufgeführt bei der Krönung Kaiser Leopold II. in Frankfurt im Oktober 1790, daher der Name. Ein Irrtum: Mozart hat das heute wegen seiner melodischen Schönheit und rokokohaften Leichtigkeit so beliebte Konzert zwar in Frankfurt gespielt, allerdings eine Woche nach der Krönung, ohne Teil der Feierlichkeiten zu sein, und es wurde auch nicht für diesen Anlass komponiert, sondern schon ein Jahr früher in Wien für seine Schülerin Barbara Ployer, die es auch uraufführte. "Described in International Record Review as 'an absolutely instinctive Mozartian, with fleet fingerwork to match any, and with melodic playing of consummate beauty', Ronald Brautigam returns with the third instalment in his series of Mozart's piano concertos. As on the two previous discs, he is joined by the period band Die Kölner Akademie conducted by Michael Alexander Willens, forming a partnership described on website as 'Mozart interpreters of the first order'" (
