Il trovatore by Giuseppe Verdi( )

35 editions published between 1977 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 978 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This live recording of Il Trovatore was made on a tour by La Scala in Moscow in 1964, and it has the kind of old-fashioned, blood-red passion that was perhaps only possible with all-Italian casts. Its level of intensity, even wildness, accentuates the plot's melodramatic qualities and makes it hugely compelling. Of the principals, only Giulietta Simionato as Azucena is vocally inconsistent. Dramatically, its possible to forgive her since she is in fact portraying an old woman, but she doesn't begin with performance with the ideal power, although she grows vocally more secure as the performance progresses, and by the last act she is completely engaging, giving full voice to her character's rage. Gabriella Tucci is an utterly radiant Leonora
Wonderful town by Leonard Bernstein( )

19 editions published between 1999 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 882 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Don Giovanni by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

9 editions published between 1979 and 2011 in Italian and German and held by 860 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Performed at the 2006 Innsbruck Festival, Rene Jacobs leads a riveting production that is illustrated by the notion of Don Giovanni as a young rebel and taboo-breaker. Jacobs also tries to respect Mozart's original intentions as closely as possible

9 editions published in 1999 in 3 languages and held by 823 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La Gioconda by Amilcare Ponchielli( )

22 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 795 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Renata Tebaldi wringing every bit of drama out of the title role, there are plenty of opportunities for goose bumps here. Add to that Carlo Bergonzi's glowing portrayal of the Enzo, the man she loves and the impassioned Fiorenza Cossotto as the woman he loves, plus one jealous husband (Bonaldo Giaiotti), and an Inquisition spy (Cornell MacNeil) bent on revenge, and you have operatic extravagance at its wonderful best, all set in romantic, mysterious 17th century Venice

Luisa Miller by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

31 editions published between 1976 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Poor Luisa Miller (Katia Ricciarelli) has given her heart to a man she knows as "Carlo." But he is really Rodolfo (Luciano Pavarotti), the son of Count Walter (Paul Plishka), who is being pressured by the Count to marry another woman. Despite every effort of Lucia's loving father (Leo Nucci), the evil Wurm (John Cheek), eventually triumphs. But it's Verdi's passionate music that wins in the end, brought to life by a cast who knows how to stir our hearts
Un ballo in maschera by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

17 editions published in 1985 in 4 languages and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El principal atractivo de esta grabación es el espectacular registro sonoro del sello Decca en el que podemos apreciar la dirección brillante, equilibrada y dinámica del maestro Solti. Los cantantes son de reconocida fama pero sus voces no se corresponden con las características que Verdi diseñó para cada personaje. Aún así, la técnica depurada de Pavarotti, la profesionalidad de la Price y el trabajo actoral de Bruson, son elementos más que suficientes para poder disfrutar de esta versión
La Sonnambula by Vincenzo Bellini( Recording )

25 editions published between 1982 and 1990 in 5 languages and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La Sonnambula" (The Sleepwalker) was first produced at the Teatro Careano, Milan, in March 1831. The libretto, by Romani, the foremost Italian librettist of the time, sets forth a rather childish if simple and natural story of lowly life in a Swiss village. The heroine, Amina, is a rustic damsel who walks in her sleep. Rodolfo, the young lord of the village, has just returned from abroad, and Amina, in her sleep, enters his room at the inn. Amina's wedding to Elvino, a wealthy landowner, was just about to be celebrated. But now the jealous Lisa, the pretty hostess of the inn, denounces Amina, and herself gains the temporary regard of Elvino. Rodolfo proclaims Amina's innocence, but nobody believes him until Amina is seen walking in her sleep, this time over a slim bridge above the mill-wheel. Her innocence is thus confirmed, and the conventional happy ending is assured

Ecce cor meum by Paul McCartney( Recording )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En relativt ukjent side av Paul McCartney, er at han gir ut klassiske plater. "Ecco cor meum" står for: "Se inn i mitt hjerte", og er hans fjerde klassiske album. Albumet er et oraturium i fire akter, og flyter majestetisk avgårde og er flott tilrettelagt for kor og orkester
