7 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Christine Schäfer sings the title role in Berg's twelve-tone masterpiece--the femme fatale who so enthralls admirers both male and female that they are powerless to halt their own destruction. Among them are Dr. Schön (James Courtney) and his son Alwa (David Kuebler), the Countess Geschwitz (Hanna Schwarz), the Painter (Clifton Forbes), two princes, an acrobat, and a schoolboy. But the magnetic Lulu is the emotional vortex around which everything revolves--all the way through her own downward spiral, until she is brutally murdered by Jack the Ripper. Maestro James Levine brings unparalleled insight and unexpected lyricism to the score, leading a powerful performance
Die Schöpfung by Joseph Haydn( )

16 editions published between 1987 and 1994 in 3 languages and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Haydn gave birth to a new type of oratorio that reflected perfectly the spirit of his time. With German texts, direct expression of feelings and many grand choruses, it stood for the transition from the aristocracy to a bourgeois society, in which music-making in a group was seen as an expression of civil pride. Extremely popular with amateur choirs, performances with a large ensemble became the rule until well into the 20th century. And the 1960 Electrola recording represents this tradition, with a top-class trio of soloists consisting of the great Elisabeth Grummer, outstanding tenor Josef Traxel and Gottlob Frick, "the blackest of all bass singers"
St. John Passion by Johann Sebastian Bach( )

5 editions published between 1972 and 1995 in 3 languages and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stephen Layton leads the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and his own superb choral ensemble, Polyphony, in a powerful performance of Bach's most dramatic masterpiece, the St. John Passion. Joined by a starry team of soloists, Layton directs a particularly vivid account of the work, the excitement of the narrative drama contrasting with heartbreaking moments of reflection
Requiem by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

12 editions published between 1989 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Never performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra before, and rarely heard in concert at all, the Requiem by Antonín Dvořák captured on this CD from a live concert seems a near-forgotten masterpiece. Dvořák scholar Gervase Hughes cites this work for four soloists, chorus and orchestra as one of the composer's finest sacred creations, 'a deeply moving expression of faith on the part of a composer whose religious conviction never wavered'"--Container
