Piano concertos by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

4 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in No Linguistic content and German and held by 657 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'" (

Thaïs by Jules Massenet( )

41 editions published between 1976 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 630 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Take one ascetic monk named Athanaël and one ravishingly beautiful courtesan named Thaïs, add Massenet's sensual, melodious music, with equal dashes of eroticism and religious fervor--and you have a powerful opera that is at once a celebration of the sacred and the profane, of flesh and soul. This rarity had not been heard at the Met for almost 40 years when it was brought back as a vehicle for the great soprano Beverly Sills and the magnetic singing actor Sherrill Milnes. Together, they masterfully bring to life the searing conflict at the heart of the drama
