Don Giovanni by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

149 editions published between 1953 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 2,939 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Don Juan: no woman can resist him and every man wants to be him. He is charisma in the flesh. But things go wrong, and divine retribution exacts the ultimate price. This all-star cast, galvanized by James Levine's passionate yet stylish conducting, brings to life one of the greatest of all operas. Sherrill Milnes is the magnetic Don and Leontyne Price the avenging Donna Anna. Irrepressible Teresa Stratas (Zerlina) is the peasant woman who can't say "no" but can't quite say "yes," either

Die Zauberflote by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

18. Jahrhundert; Oper
Così fan tutte by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

65 editions published between 1960 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sometimes the saucy, clever maid knows more about men and love than her aristocratic, sophisticated employers. When the great singing actress Teresa Stratas, as Despina, explains the facts of life to Teresa Zylis-Gara's Fiordiligi and Rosalind Elias's Dorabella, you know the two ladies are in for an education in the way the world truly works. Walter Berry is at his ironic best as Don Alfonso, the cynical philosopher who sets up this "school for lovers." As much as Mozart and his librettist Da Ponte adored women, they weren't above a bit of scandalous humor--just to set the record straight

Die Schöpfung = The creation by Joseph Haydn( Recording )

60 editions published between 1966 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 722 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)
Die Frau ohne Schatten by Richard Strauss( Recording )

41 editions published between 1966 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 718 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Strauss and Hofmannsthal's sumptuous and magical fairy tale receives an authoritative performance conducted by the great Karl Böhm, a protégé of the composer, in his last Met broadcast. The extraordinary cast is led by Leonie Rysanek as the Empress, the "woman without a shadow" of the title, who stars opposite James King as the ethereal Emperor, Walter Berry as the goodhearted Barak the Dyer, Ursula Schröder-Feinen as the hapless Dyer's Wife, and Mignon Dunn as the sinister Nurse

Der Rosenkavalier by Richard Strauss( Recording )

51 editions published between 1955 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Strauss's poignant fairy tale of 18th-century Vienna is brilliantly realized by a glittering cast under the musical direction of the great Karl Böhm, a friend and protégé of the composer. Vienna's own Leonie Rysanek is the beautiful and wise Marschallin, the woman who knows her affair with the impetuous Octavian (a superb Christa Ludwig) will not last forever. The enchanting Reri Grist sings Sophie, the girl who captures the young man's heart. Water Berry is appropriately loveable and boorish as Sophie's would-be fiancé, the rustic Baron Ochs, who becomes the victim of Octavian's elaborate joke. Nicolai Gedda is luxuriously cast as the Italian Singer

Ariadne auf Naxos by Richard Strauss( Recording )

47 editions published between 1960 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great Jessye Norman is Ariadne, the mythological heroine abandoned by her lover on the island of Naxos. In Strauss and Hofmannsthal's charming opera-within-an-opera, she is joined by Ruth Ann Swenson as Zerbinetta, the flirtatious leader of a commedia dell'arte troupe that--by order of an eccentric patron--unexpectedly finds itself in the middle of Ariadne's tragic story. Thomas Moser sings Bacchus, the young god who wins Ariadne, and Susanne Mentzer is the Composer of the fictional opera. Wagnerian bass-baritone Thomas Stewart makes a late-career cameo appearance as the Music Master
Der heitere Mozart by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

20 editions published between 1900 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Der heitere Mozart" tar for seg en lang rekke av komponistens mer sprø, musikalske innfall. Mozart (1756 - 1791) var en glad laks og en stor del av hans produksjon går inn under den kategorien som kalles underholdningsmusikk. Her finner vi lette, morsomme stykker og småserenader. I tillegg har man på platen fått plass til en rekke såkalte kanons, viser Mozart selv skrev teksten til. Enkelte av disse visene har på grunn av komponistens noe frivole sans for analhumor fått et visst rykte som noen skikkelige griseviser. Aftenpostens klassiskspaltist kaller denne platen for " en av de artigste Mozart-utgivelser som eksisterer"
St Matthew Passion : BWV. 244 by Johann Sebastian Bach( )

11 editions published between 1967 and 1989 in 4 languages and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although Bach wrote four (or five) settings of the Passions only two have survived; the St. Matthew Passion (Matthäus-Passion) and the St John Passion. The St. Matthew Passion was probably first performed on Good Friday (11 April) 1727 in the Thomaskirche in Leipzig, where Bach was the Kantor of the School and Directoris Chori musici of Leipzig. He revised it by 1736, performing it again on 30 March 1736, this time including two organs in the instrumentation. He further revised and performed it again on 24 March 1742. Considered to be one of the greatest pieces of sacred music in Western music, it has been recorded many times, and this version, recorded in July 1964 has remained one of the reference recordings of the work, not least for the inclusion of Fritz Wunderlich as performer of the tenor arias, as well as the rest of the supreme vocal cast which includes Pears, Prey, Ameling and Krause. Booklet notes are by the producer of this recording, the great Ray Minshull, and full texts, together with a new English translation are included
