Der Rosenkavalier by Richard Strauss( )

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 Dmitriĭ Dmitrievich Shostakovich( )

31 editions published between 1982 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 823 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shostakovich's grim Eighth Symphony was written in 1943 and premiered by its dedicatee, Evgeny Mravinsky, whose recordings of the work still stand supreme. Now, Mariss Jansons, who as a young conductor was mentored by Mravinsky, leads his Pittsburgh players in a stellar concert performance recorded live. Orchestral execution is first-rate, and Jansons doesn't smooth over or prettify the hourlong work, soaked in the composer's bitterness about the Nazi and Stalinist brutality that stamped his life with fear and loathing. The long opening Adagio, with its brooding strings and pitiless brass eruptions, is shattering, as are the following grotesque Allegretto and the relentlessly powerful third movement. The final two movements maintain the bleak mood, though the finale tries to recover a measure of joy amid the gloom. Jansons and his orchestra sustain this potent work's intensity throughout, confirming the Eighth as one of the composer's most important and fully realized works. The filler is an interesting rehearsal excerpt
Das Lied von der Erde by Gustav Mahler( )

36 editions published between 1975 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 724 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

For the latest highly anticipated release in the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra's Mahler symphony cycle under the direction of its chief conductor Mariss Jansons, the orchestra now turns its attention to the Third Symphony. Like no other, Jansons possesses the ability to integrate all this beautiful detailing into the virtually infinite overarching climaxes that can make listening to Mahler's symphonies such an exciting experience

Composed in 1902, this purely instrumental work followed upon three symphonies that had all included vocal parts. This and the opening trumpet motif, an allusion to the rhythm that begins Beethoven's Fifth have been interpreted as Mahler's return to a more conventional idea of the symphonic genre
