Most widely held works by Christoph von Dohnányi
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 )

54 editions published between 1981 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 709 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!'
Fidelio by Ludwig van Beethoven( Visual )

60 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A performance of Beethoven's only opera in which Leonore, the faithful wife, struggles to free her unjustly imprisoned husband Florestan from a Spanish dungeon
Century rolls ; Lollapalooza ; Slonimsky's earbox by John Adams( Recording )

11 editions published in 2000 in 3 languages and held by 530 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
