Stabat Mater by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi( Recording )

Bartoli continues her exploration of Steffani's music by championing his last and greatest masterpiece - her first Stabat Mater since the best-selling Pergolesi recording."La Bartoli sings as enthrallingly as ever, and with this new CD reasserts her place as No. 1 in the international diva firmament." - Financial Times Germany on Mission. Cecilia Bartoli's exploration of the music of Steffani continues on from her best-selling recording ‘Mission' with an album of the celebrated Stabat Mater alongside Steffani's greatest sacred works for chorus, orchestra and soloists, constituting the most comprehensive collection of Steffani's sacred choral music on CD. Bartoli leads an array of internationally celebrated singers including countertenor Franco Fagioli, the bass Salvo Vitale and the two young German tenors Daniel Behle and Julian Prégardien. Steffani's Stabat Mater is his masterpiece, completed shortly before he died in 1728. It has been described as the most powerful expression of his religious fervour and, at almost half an hour, the largest-scale, most complex and heartfelt of his compositions outside his operas. The opening solo "Stabat Mater dolorosa" featured on the ‘Mission' DVD. The album is completed by six world premiere recordings of the best of Steffani's remaining sacred music, including Sperate in Deo and Laudate Pueri. These are scored for orchestra, chorus and soloists featuring two young baroque-specialist sopranos Nuria Rial and Yetzabel Arias Fernandez alongside Behle, Pregardien and Vitale. Also amongst these world premieres is Non plus me Ligate, a seven-minute solo motet for Cecilia Bartoli. Released in the same month is an album of Steffani's greatest orchestral music ‘Ouvertures et Danzes' with Diego Fasolis and I Barocchisti
Così fan tutte by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

39 editions published between 1974 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For a long time, Così fan tutte was considered scandalous. Which is not entirely surprising if you look at its story of two sisters (Maria Ewing and Pilar Lorengar) who jump from grief over their fiancés going off to war to agreeing to marry two attractive strangers (David Rendall and Lenus Carlson) within the space of a couple days. Except the strangers are in fact the fiancés in disguise, and the whole thing is a plot masterminded by a cynical old philosopher (Donald Gramm) and a clever maid (Kathleen Battle). Scandalous or not, Così fan tutte has remained one of opera's most contemporary comedies--especially when conducted masterfully by James Levine

Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg by Richard Wagner( )

6 editions published between 1972 and 2011 in German and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Wagner's colorful portrait of medieval Nuremberg, the wealthy Pogner (Ezio Flagello) promises his beautiful daughter Eva (Pilar Lorengar) in marriage to the winner of a song contest. But the girl has already set her sights on the handsome Walther (James King). Naturally, various obstacles have to be overcome before the happy conclusion. Benno Kusche plays Beckmesser, Eva's unsuccessful suitor, and Theo Adam is Hans Sachs, the town's cobbler and reigning poet whose deep insights into human nature make this opera so much more than a delightful comedy. Maestro Thomas Schippers leads the Met's vast orchestral and choral forces
