Die Nummer eins unter den Operetten schildert Lug und Trug um das Familienleben des Rentiers Gabriel von Eisenstein und seiner Frau Rosalinde. Eine fein gesponnene Intrige - von Eisensteins "Freund" Dr. Falke erdacht - lässt den untreuen Ehemann Eisenstein bei einem pompösen Fest des superreichen Prinzen Orlofsky auf seine Kosten kommen. Nach einer rauschenden Ballnacht, bei der alle handelnden Personen in falschen Identitäten auftreten, gibt es aber ein böses Erwachen, denn Rosalinde lässt sich nicht ungestraft düpieren
Requiem by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

8 editions published between 1991 and 2004 in Latin and German and held by 496 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."

Die Schöpfung = The creation by Joseph Haydn( )

17 editions published between 1977 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This marvellous recording, sung in German, comes as a surprise, since Bernard Haitink is not obviously associated with Haydn. In fact he didn't tackle The Creation until 2011, when he was 82. He approaches this great choral masterpiece with wit, unhurried grandeur, riveting orchestral detail and forward momentum - in short, with just the acuity he brings to anything he conducts. (....) Gabriel (soprano Camilla Tilling), Uriel (tenor Mark Padmore), and Raphael (bass Hanno Müller-Brachmann). Choir, orchestra and soloists are on sparkling form in this live recording - an invigorating reminder, if any were needed, of Haydn's genius" (The Guardian)
