Performances of Berlioz's epic masterpiece are rare events--under James Levine's inspired leadership, the stellar cast and the Met's chorus and orchestra triumphantly meet the enormous challenge. Ben Heppner is the legendary Trojan hero Aeneas who escapes the doomed city of Troy and falls in love with the beautiful Queen of Carthage, Dido, sung by the radiant Lorraine Hunt Lieberson in her final appearance at the Met.

Samson et Dalila by Camille Saint-Saëns( Recording )

36 editions published between 1981 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Biblical tale of the overwhelming love between a Jewish leader (Samson) and a Philistine beauty (Dalila) that turns sour and destroys them both has inspired numerous composers. But it's easy to see why Saint-Saëns's opera has remained a favorite--not only with audiences but also with great singing actors. Seldom has Dalila been so sultry and seductive, or Samson's fall from strong man to blind prisoner been so wrenching. With enticing Risë Stevens and heroic Mario Del Monaco in the titles roles, and Martial Singher as the High Priest, this stunning performance is a true gem

Requiem in D minor, K. 626 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

16 editions published between 1967 and 2006 in 4 languages and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

ATMA Classique is reissuing one of Les Violons du Roy's seminal discs: the orchestra's recording of Mozart's Requiem as revised and completed by Robert D. Levin. The soloists are Karina Gauvin, Marie-Nicole Lemieux, John Tessier, and Nathan Berg. Bernard Labadie conducts Les Violons du Roy and the choir of La Chapelle de Québec. This recording was originally released on the Dorian label in 2002, and won the JUNO Award for Best Classical Album of the year in the vocal or choral performance category. This recording of Mozart's Requiem is especially poignant, as it was made in Troy, NewYork in the week following the September 11 attacks in 2001.The recording captures the emotion and immediacy of that special performance, which was later featured on CBC Television's Opening Night. The Globe & Mail wrote about "an appreciation of the transcendent aspects of the Requiem as a work of art that is about death, survival and the possibility of an afterlife. There is the magnificence of the music, so often used to solemnly mark terrible tragedy and bring solace."
