Die Walküre by Richard Wagner( Recording )

35 editions published between 1944 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Even by the Met's own high standards, this Walküre cast is nothing short of breathtaking. Lauritz Melchior's truly heroic Siegmund beautifully complements Rose Bampton's feminine, appealing Sieglinde. No wonder Helen Traubel (Brünnhilde) melts when she sees the depths of their love for each other. But Kerstin Thorborg's imperious Fricka is unyielding in her demands that her husband, Wotan (Herbert Janssen), punish Siegmund for breaking the laws of marriage. With menacing, black-voiced bass Alexander Kipnis as the aggrieved Hunding, and conducted by George Szell, this is Wagner at his most stirring
Lohengrin by Richard Wagner( Recording )

39 editions published between 1943 and 2013 in German and Undetermined and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lauritz Melchior heads a stellar cast in this remarkable broadcast of Wagner's Romantic opera. As the knightly title hero, he comes to the aid of Elsa (Astrid Varnay), the innocent young woman accused of murdering her brother by the evil Ortrud (Kerstin Thorborg) and her husband, the scheming Telramund (Alexander Sved). Norman Cordon sings King Henry, and Erich Leinsdorf conducts.This performance is taken from the CD box set Wagner at The Met, released by Sony Classical

Das Lied von der Erde by Gustav Mahler( Recording )

29 editions published between 1936 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der deutsche Bariton Christian Gerhaher ist zweifellos einer der besten Liedsänger der Welt. Auf seiner neuen CD widmet er sich gemeinsam mit Kent Nagano und dem Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal sowie Klaus Florian Vogt, Tenor, erstmals Mahlers berühmtem Werk "Das Lied von der Erde", seiner Vertonung von sieben Gedichten für Tenor, Alt und Orchester, laut Mahlers eigenem Bekunden "das Persönlichste, was ich je geschrieben habe". Das Werk komponierte Mahler 1907, einem Jahr, in dem sein Leben durch mehrere schwere Schicksalsschläge (dem Tod seiner Tochter, dem Rücktritt als Direktor der Wiener Hofoper und eigener Krankheit) gezeichnet war. Christian Gerhaher, Klaus Florian Vogt und dem Orchester unter Nagano gelingt es, die Tiefen und die Farbigkeit von Mahlers Werk in allen Details auszuloten. Nr. 1 Das Trinklied vom Jammer der Erde: Allegro pesante Nr. 2 Der Einsame im Herbst: Etwas schleichend. Ermüdet Nr. 3 Von der Jugend: Behaglich heiter Nr. 4 Von der Schönheit: Comodo. Dolcissimo Nr. 5 Der Trunkene im Frühling: Allegro Nr. 6 Der Abschied: Schwer

This performance presents the great Leonie Rysanek in one of her most memorable roles--the teenage Judean princess Salome. Obsessed with the prophet Jochanaan, the Biblical John the Baptist (Norman Bailey), she skillfully manipulates her lecherous stepfather Herod (Ragnar Ulfung) until he has no choice but to have the holy man killed for spurning the princess's advances. The legendary Astrid Varnay is Salome's mother, Herodias. Highlights of the score include the Dance of the Seven Veils and Salome's final monologue, one of the supreme dramatic achievements in all of opera

Gluck’s retelling of one of the world’s greatest myths has always attracted extraordinary singing actors.

Marita Farell sings Amore, the god of love, who sets things right. Erich Leinsdorf conducts

But he loves Amelia (Zinka Milanov), the wife of his friend Renato (Robert Merrill). And when Renato discovers them together, he joins the plot against the king. This is Verdian passion at its best
