Salome by Richard Strauss( )

38 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in German and Undetermined and held by 1,001 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This performance presents the great Leonie Rysanek in one of her most memorable roles--the teenage Judean princess Salome. Obsessed with the prophet Jochanaan, the Biblical John the Baptist (Norman Bailey), she skillfully manipulates her lecherous stepfather Herod (Ragnar Ulfung) until he has no choice but to have the holy man killed for spurning the princess's advances. The legendary Astrid Varnay is Salome's mother, Herodias. Highlights of the score include the Dance of the Seven Veils and Salome's final monologue, one of the supreme dramatic achievements in all of opera
Wozzeck by Alban Berg( Recording )

49 editions published between 1981 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 696 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on real events and playwright Georg Büchner's starkly vehement text, Alban Berg's tragic opera is an epoch-making work, in stark contrast to the previous high romantic ideals of the genre, that led Schoenberg to exclaim 'now that's what I call an opera!'
Violin concertos by Johann Sebastian Bach( )

18 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The second instalment in Richard Tognetti's acclaimed Bach Violin cycle.

Century rolls ; Lollapalooza ; Slonimsky's earbox by John Adams( Recording )

8 editions published in 2000 in No Linguistic content and Undetermined and held by 526 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( )

13 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in 3 languages and held by 400 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.

8 editions published between 1993 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This recording of Bruckner's fifth has been published several times by various companies, with many containing questionable sound quality. The present release is sourced from the original tape kept in the archive of Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg. The tape needed only minimal reworking, as the sound quality is very good.

Symphony no. 9 by Anton Bruckner( )

9 editions published in 1989 in 5 languages and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In January 2014, music lovers worldwide were saddened to learn of the death of conductor Claudio Abbado. Deutsche Grammophon feels immensely blessed and proud to be releasing, together with Accentus Music, Bruckner 's Symphony no. 9 in D minor, which was recorded as part of Abbado's final concert. The concert received very positive reviews from the press: "Mr. Abbado led an otherworldly account of Bruckner's 9th Symphony. Never have I heard as magisterial and moving performance of the work as that given by the 80-year-old maestro and his fabulous Lucerne Festival Orchestra" (Wall Street Journal). The concert was recorded by Accentus Music during the 75th Lucerne Festival in 2013 with the Lucerne Festival Orchestra, and this release is a fitting tribute to an irreplaceable artist, who was one of the greatest conductors and most inspiring musical figures of our time. With this record, Deutsche Grammophon and Accentus Music wish to pay tribute to the maestro and honour what would have been his 81st birthday on June 26, 2014
