Most widely held works by Christoph von Dohnányi
Salome by Richard Strauss( )

33 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in German and Undetermined and held by 933 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Karita Mattila gives a tour-de-force performance in the title role of Strauss's groundbreaking opera, opposite Alfred Dohmen as Jochanaan (John the Baptist), the object of her deadly passion. Larissa Diadkova is Herodias, Salome's mother, and Siegfried Jerusalem sings her husband, King Herod, whose desire for his stepdaughter sets the tragedy in motion. Matthew Polenzani is Narraboth, the captain of the guard, and Valery Gergiev conducts the colorful score that includes the famous Dance of the Seven Veils
Violin concertos by Johann Sebastian Bach( )

25 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 768 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Tchaikovsky and Mendelssohn concertos both have played a significant role in Ray Chen's career. His superb performance of the works led to his triumph at two major violin competitions: the 2008 Yehudi Menuhin Competition and first prize in the prestigious Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels a year later. Chen brings a fresh interpretation to the cornerstones of violin repertoire and finds a kindred spirit in conductor Daniel Harding and the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra
Wozzeck by Alban Berg( Recording )

49 editions published between 1981 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 637 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Levine, a longtime champion of this groundbreaking work, has conducted every Met performance of Wozzeck since 1974. He brings Berg's revolutionary score to dramatic life in this broadcast, leading an extraordinary cast headed by Christian Boesch and Hildegard Behrens. Boesch gives a heartbreaking performance as the poor, abused soldier of the title, and Behrens is stunning as his faithless and conflicted wife, Marie. Richard Cassilly sings the vain Drum Major who seduces her, and Ragnar Ulfung and Franz Mazura are the Captain and the Doctor, who mock and torture Wozzeck
Century rolls ; Lollapalooza ; Slonimsky's earbox by John Adams( Recording )

10 editions published in 2000 in 3 languages and held by 548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of all the so-called minimalists working today, John Adams is the only one with any good ideas left. Witness this delightful release. The key to Adams's creativity is that he isn't bound by theoretical constraints on what "minimalism" should be. Century Rolls (1995) is a commission by Emanuel Ax, and it was inspired by the composer's listening to a CD recording of an ancient player piano. Century Rolls doesn't duplicate that sound, but it is, instead, an unexpected romp across new rhythmic territory. As for Mr. Ax, he comports himself very well, particularly in the difficult first Movement, which requires deft coordination of all forces involved. The brief Lollapalooza (1995) is more recognizably minimalist but with considerable orchestral color and shifting moods. And Slominsky's Earbox (1996) is a powerfully full-orchestra-driven canter. All this is to say that the CD is one of the best releases of Adams's career, and it will appeal to a very wide audience. --Paul Cook

Slavonic dances by Antonín Dvořák( )

14 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in 3 languages and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Auf ihrem neuesten Album hat das sowohl national als auch international mit Preisen ausgezeichnete Klavierduo Yaara Tal und Andreas Groethuysen die Slawischen Tänze op. 46 und 72 von Dvorák eingespielt. Sie gehören zu den bekanntesten Kompositionen des tschechischen Komponisten und wurden im Original tatsächlich für Klavier zu vier Händen geschrieben. Erst kurze Zeit später entstand die heute berühmte Bearbeitung für Orchester. Dvorák war mit seinen Slawischen Tänzen op. 46, die er nach dem Vorbild der Ungarischen Tänze seines Förderers und Freundes Johannes Brahms konzipiert hatte, der langersehnte Durchbruch auch jenseits der Grenzen seiner Heimat gelungen. Der primär kunstmusikalische Charakter der Slawischen Tänze zeigt sich aber besonders in eben dieser originalen vierhändigen Klavierfassung, was auch die Interpretation des Klavierduos Tal & Groethuysen hervorragend zu Gehör bringt.
