58 editions published between 1978 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 1,094 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anyone lucky enough to have seen Kiri Te Kanawa in one of her great Mozart roles knows that this performance is a treasure. As Fiordiligi, one of the two sisters unknowingly being tested by their fiancées, Te Kanawa pulled at our heartstrings even while she was making us laugh. Nothing in the bravura vocal writing, with its fiendish runs and jumps, was too much for her creamy, exquisite voice. Diana Montague is her sister and fellow victim of their love interests, played by David Rendall and Håkan Hagegård

Giuseppe Verdi's Otello: In what many believe to be the finest production of Othello in modern times, Plácido Domingo and Kiri Te Kanawa lead a world-class cast under the exquisite musical direction of Sir Georg Solti. An outstanding performance of the first of Verdi's two late Shakespearian operas, universally regarded as sublime masterpieces of grand opera. Placido Domingo and Kiri Te Kanawa lead an outstanding cast in this production of Giuseppe Verdi's operatic adaptation of Shakespeare's tragedy Othello.

Georg Solti conducts the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, under the leadership of Bradley Creswick

Mozart arias by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

26 editions published between 1987 and 1993 in 7 languages and held by 694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

ABC Classics presents the recording return of one of its brightest stars, soprano Emma Matthews. Following the success of her 2009 album Emma Matthews in Monte Carlo, recorded with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte-Carlo, Emma now turns her unique talent to the passion, eloquence and beauty of Mozart Arias. Working closely from a young age with some of the greatest singers of the age, Mozart came to know the soprano voice intimately, and the arias he wrote for it are breathtaking, both in the extremes of range - from the famous and spectacular high Fs in the Queen of the Night aria, to the rich warmth of the lower registers - and in the breadth of drama and emotion that the music portrays. Emma Matthews has been performing the operas of Mozart to international acclaim for many years, and this album is a showcase of her skill and artistry, her extraordinary virtuosity, her expressive genius, and above all, her deep love of this sublime music
