Parsifal by Richard Wagner( )

81 editions published between 1973 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 1,663 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner's mystical opera makes extraordinary demands on the conductor, but James Levine is renowned for the special affection and authority he brings to this transcendent work. The music shimmers and glows, evoking the legendary world of the Knights of the Holy Grail and the pure fool who brings healing power to the land. Peter Hofmann stars as the questing title hero, Jerome Hines sings the wise old man, Gurnemanz, and Mignon Dunn is the voluptuous Kundry, whose erotic temptations almost ensnare the young hero

Symphony no. 8 by Gustav Mahler( Recording )

44 editions published between 1972 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,049 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mahlers 8. Sinfonie ist ein wahrhaft episches Werk, das einen enormen Chor, ein riesiges Orchester, nicht weniger als 8 Solisten und zusätzliche Blechbläser hinter dem Podium verlangt. Nicht von ungefähr, aber ohne Mahlers Zustimmung, wurde sie daher als "Sinfonie der Tausend" bezeichnet. Die Uraufführung 1910 in München war ein triumphaler Erfolg, gleichzeitig war es das letzte Dirigat Mahlers in Europa, 8 Monate später starb er. Die 8. Sinfonie ist in 2 deutlich voneinander abgesetzte Sätze geteilt und spannt den Bogen vom Pfingsthymnus Veni creator spiritus bis zur Schlussszene aus dem 2. Teil von Goethes Faust. - Die Londoner St. Paul's Cathedral bildete im letzten Jahr den spektakulären Rahmen für eine eindrucksvolle Aufführung der Sinfonie der Tausend mit Valery Gergiev und dem London Symphony Orchestra. Sie wird auf dieser preiswerten CD in SACD-Qualität nacherlebbar. Breite Empfehlung

63 editions published between 1975 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 1,043 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Lied von der Erde by Gustav Mahler( )

95 editions published between 1972 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 892 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

So einzigartig wie die formale Gestaltung des Werks, so extrem sind die Anforderungen an seine Interpreten: Es bedarf zweier gestandener Liedsänger, die im Zusammenwirken mit dem riesigen Orchesterapparat ebenso als Solisten hervortreten, wie sie sich als konzertierende Stimmen in das symphonische Gefüge mit einzuordnen vermögen. Es bedarf eines ausgezeichneten, bestens aufeinander abgestimmten Klangkörpers, und natürlich einer Dirigentenpersönlichkeit, die für Zusammenhalt sorgt und der Großform Geist und Beseeltheit verleiht. Alle diese Parameter fügten sich bei Konzerten zusammen, die am 25. und 26. Januar 2018 im Herkulessaal der Münchener Residenz aufgezeichnet wurden und nun bereits als CD bei BR Klassik veröffentlicht werden

This broadcast of Wagner's most romantic opera stars René Kollo as the knight of the Holy Grail who arrives in a boat pulled by a swan to defend the innocent Elsa, played by Pilar Lorengar. Mignon Dunn is the dark and malevolent Ortrud who poisons the couple's happiness, with some help from her husband, Telramund (Donald McIntyre). James Levine leads the Met orchestra, bringing out the shimmer and the thunder of the score, along with every shade of expression in between

A brilliant ensemble cast bring Strauss's beloved operetta to life, with new English dialogue by playwright Douglas Carter Beane and lyrics by Jeremy Sams (who also directed this production, first seen on New Year's Eve 2013). Christopher Maltman and Susanna Phillips are Eisenstein and Rosalinde, the married couple at the center of this lighthearted tale of love, revenge, and mistaken identities. Paulo Szot sings Falke, Eisenstein's friend, who sets the plot in motion. Anthony Roth Costanzo is Prince Orlofsky, Jane Archibald sings Adele, and Broadway star Danny Burstein is Frosch, the jailer. Adam Fischer conducts
Der Freischutz by Carl Maria von Weber( )

34 editions published between 1980 and 2000 in 4 languages and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner said this early-Romantic gem was the most German of German operas. Its irresistible mix of colorful folklore, the spooky supernatural, a tender romance, and the passionate struggle between good and evil are all captured in Weber's tuneful and dramatic score. The cast in this rare U.S. performance is sensational: Sándor Kónya as our hero, the forester Max, who must win a shooting contest in order to marry his beloved Agathe (the ravishing Pilar Lorengar), despite the dark plotting of Caspar (Gerd Feldhoff)
