Strauss and Hofmannsthal's masterpiece stars Violeta Urmana in the tour-de-force title role and Joyce DiDonato as the high-minded young Composer of the opera-within-an-opera. The performance of his serious work is interrupted to comic effect by the arrival of Zerbinetta (Kathleen Kim) and her commedia dell'arte troupe. Robert Dean Smith sings the god Bacchus who leads the grieving Ariadne away to a new life. Thomas Allen is the Music Master and Fabio Luisi conducts
Die Schöpfung by Joseph Haydn( )

26 editions published between 1974 and 2009 in German and Undetermined and held by 739 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"

Die schöne Magelone by Johannes Brahms( )

9 editions published between 1983 and 2015 in German and Undetermined and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Geschichte der schönen Magelone wurzelt eigentlich in orientalischen Erzählungen und in der Sagentradition der Provence. Im 15. Jahrhundert wurde sie auch im deutschsprachigen Raum bekannt. 1797 sorgte Ludwig Tieck für eine romantisch subjektivierte Fassung der Liebesgeschichte. Sie inspirierte Johannes Brahms zu seinem einzigen Liederzyklus. Die von Tieck stammenden Zwischentexte allerdings wirkten etwas antiquiert. Als der Schriftsteller Martin Walser von Christian Gerhaher hörte, dass dieser den Zyklus mit dem eigentlichen Text nicht singen wolle, bot er kurzerhand an, selbst einen zu schreiben und ihn auch im Konzert zu lesen. Walser Begründung für sein Engagement ist dabei so simpel wie überzeugend: So könne er immer dabei sitzen und Gerhaher aus nächster Nähe singen hören (Quelle: BR)
