Die Zauberflöte by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

73 editions published between 1964 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 1,463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mozart's immortal parable is ideally served by the great Lucia Popp as Pamina, the young girl caught between filial duty, motherly rage, and the stirrings of first love. David Kuebler is Tamino, the fearless prince who sets out to win her, and Dale Duesing sings Papageno, the down-to-earth birdcatcher who longs for a wife of his own. John Macurdy and Zdzislawa Donat are Sarastro and the Queen of the Night
Der Rosenkavalier by Richard Strauss( )

46 editions published between 1970 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 817 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Karl Bohm's only studio version of the work was recorded in 1958. When Deutsche Grammophon originally planned to record the work, there were already two rival versions on the market: the Decca recording under Erich Kleiber and EMI's version under Herbert von Karajan. Karajan's recording was made in December 1956 and should have included Irmgard Seefried as Octavian and Rita Streich as Sophie, but in both cases cast changes became necessary: Seefried was replaced by the young Christa Ludwig, and pregnancy forced Rita Streich to withdraw. As a result, Deutsche Grammophon was able to use both these singers for its own recording exactly two years later. It boasts a wonderful cast, with the full-throated Marianne Schech as the Marschallin, Irmgard Seefried bringing a range of colour to the 'trouser' role of Octavian, Rita Streich light and exquisite as Sophie, and a rounded, lyrical portrait of Faninal from Fischer-Dieskau. The recording also reunited Bohm with his 'old' orchestra, the Dresden Staatskapelle, an orchestra often referred to as the Zauberharfe or Magic Harp for the fluent and airborne quality of its sound
Symphony no. 8 by Gustav Mahler( Recording )

40 editions published between 1972 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 803 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first part of Mahler's 8th symphony is built around the 4th century Latin hymn Veni, Creator Spiritus (come, spirit of creation). The second part retells the final episode of Goethe's Faust in which the title character finds salvation. This recording also includes the Adagio from Mahler's 10th symphony and is the final installment of the San Francisco Symphony's Mahler cycle
La clemenza di Tito : K. 621 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Recording )

81 editions published between 1900 and 2010 in 6 languages and held by 801 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Under James Levine's persuasive and loving leadership, this first-rate cast demonstrates Mozart's late opera crackles with passion and drama. The Roman emperor Tito (Kenneth Riegel) is besieged by death plots, a massive fire in Rome, and his best friend's betrayal. The young Roman patrician Sesto, sung by Tatiana Troyanos in one of her greatest performances, is besotted by the vengeful and manipulative Vitellia (Elizabeth Connell). An enchanting Gail Robinson is Servilia, Sesto's sister, who is desired by the emperor himself but in love with another man
The cunning little vixen = Das schlaue Füchslein by Leoš Janáček( Recording )

54 editions published between 1981 and 2008 in 6 languages and held by 774 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das schlaue Füchslein: Oper in drei Akten nach der Erzählung von R. Tesnohlidek / Das schlaue Füchslein: Orchestersuite, bearbeitet von Vaclav Talich
Die Schöpfung by Joseph Haydn( )

45 editions published between 1977 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 681 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"

Requiem by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

17 editions published between 1978 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Never performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra before, and rarely heard in concert at all, the Requiem by Antonín Dvořák captured on this CD from a live concert seems a near-forgotten masterpiece. Dvořák scholar Gervase Hughes cites this work for four soloists, chorus and orchestra as one of the composer's finest sacred creations, 'a deeply moving expression of faith on the part of a composer whose religious conviction never wavered'"--Container
