Der Rosenkavalier by Richard Strauss( )

19 editions published between 1952 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Karl Bohm's only studio version of the work was recorded in 1958. When Deutsche Grammophon originally planned to record the work, there were already two rival versions on the market: the Decca recording under Erich Kleiber and EMI's version under Herbert von Karajan. Karajan's recording was made in December 1956 and should have included Irmgard Seefried as Octavian and Rita Streich as Sophie, but in both cases cast changes became necessary: Seefried was replaced by the young Christa Ludwig, and pregnancy forced Rita Streich to withdraw. As a result, Deutsche Grammophon was able to use both these singers for its own recording exactly two years later. It boasts a wonderful cast, with the full-throated Marianne Schech as the Marschallin, Irmgard Seefried bringing a range of colour to the 'trouser' role of Octavian, Rita Streich light and exquisite as Sophie, and a rounded, lyrical portrait of Faninal from Fischer-Dieskau. The recording also reunited Bohm with his 'old' orchestra, the Dresden Staatskapelle, an orchestra often referred to as the Zauberharfe or Magic Harp for the fluent and airborne quality of its sound
Ariadne auf Naxos by Richard Strauss( Recording )

28 editions published between 1963 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 255 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 Rosenkavalier by Richard Strauss( Visual )

12 editions published between 1961 and 2010 in German and Undetermined and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Elisabeth Schwarzkopf was the most celebrated Marschallin since Lotte Lehmann; Otto Edelmann recalled the great days of Emanuel List and Richard Mayr; Sena Jurinac, perhaps a shade too plump for a dramatically convincing Octavian, nevertheless sang, moved and acted well; and Annaliese Rothenberger was absolutely divine as Sophie. The filmed production is lavish and colorful. This was the definitive performance of its time." (The New York Times)
