124 editions published between 1947 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 707 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Walküre by Richard Wagner( Recording )

45 editions published between 1954 and 2014 in German and Undetermined and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This most popular part of Wagner's Ring cycle has it all--a pair of impetuous lovers who will stop at nothing to be together; a young half-goddess who changes from a sassy girl to a strong woman when she learns the meaning of love; and her father, the leader of the gods, trapped in a quagmire of his own making, who has to sacrifice the person dearest to him to retain his position. This searing drama is brilliantly conducted here by the legendary Dimitri Mitropoulos
Tristan und Isolde by Richard Wagner( Recording )

58 editions published between 1953 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner's ode to the power of all-consuming love makes inhuman demands on the tenor and soprano who portray the two lovers. Fortunately in this broadcast we have Ramon Vinay as Tristan--a singing actor known for intensity and spontaneity in his stage appearances. His Isolde is the great American soprano Margaret Harshaw in her only broadcast of this role. The wronged King Marke, who loses both his wife and his best friend, is the superb Otto Edelmann. Fritz Stiedry conducts
Lohengrin by Richard Wagner( Recording )

23 editions published between 1976 and 2013 in German and Undetermined and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The power and radiance of the Lohengrin score express Wagner's deeply held belief that love is essentially mystical. The frail and lovely Elsa of Brabant is accused of murdering her own brother, but God sends a mysterious knight, Lohengrin, to defend her honor
Der Ring des Nibelungen by Richard Wagner( Recording )

25 editions published between 1953 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zum 200. Geburtstag von Richard Wagner erscheint bei GoyaLiT sein Meisterwerk "Der Ring des Nibelungen" als Ein-Mann-Hörspiel. Mit seinem Live-Hörspiel-Format Kaminski ON AIR inszeniert Stefan Kaminski das monumentale Meisterwerk um Macht, Liebe, Gier, Rache und die Abgründe der menschlichen Gesellschaft modern und klassisch zugleich. Voller Aberwitz und Komik, sogar Slapstick, dann wieder mit tiefer Tragik in zarten Momenten knapp über der Stille und herrlichem Pathos führt dieser Vierteiler ungebremst in die Apokalypse. Von Musikern begleitet schlüpft der Ausnahmesprecher selbst in alle Rollen, spricht Riesen und Zwerge, Frauen und Männer, Götter und Herrscher, Geliebte und außergewöhnliche Helden. Musik, Atmosphäre und Geräuschmaterial werden live gespielt und erzeugt. "Man sollte den Stoff am besten in groben Zügen kennen, dann nämlich hat man besonders viel Spaß an den Verfremdungen. Kaminskis Ring-Version hat viele parodistische Elemente, macht sich aber nie lustig. Und bei allen klanglichen Unterschieden: Textlich bleibt er nah bei Wagner, durchsetzt die Geschichte dazu mit einer gehörigen Portion Moderne - und mit Zitaten aus Shakespeares "Hamlet" oder Tolkiens "Herr der Ringe". Jeder der vier Teile klingt anders: Das sphärische Rheingold wird gefolgt von der erdig-dumpfen Walküre voller Tuba- und Cello-Klängen, während Siegfried an vielen Stellen wie ein 80er-Jahre-Neue-Deutsche-Welle-Pop-Musical daherkommt" (ndr.de)

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

Das Rheingold by Richard Wagner( )

2 editions published between 1957 and 2008 in German and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The beginning of Das Rheingold takes the listener right into the mystical atmosphere of the Ring cycle. Out of the darkness, from the depths of the River Rhine, come the mysterious notes that signal the birth of life itself. Soon we're in the middle of a rousing tale of ambition, greed, promises made and broken, of gods, dwarfs, and giants. They all desire one thing--the magical Rhine gold that bestows unlimited power over the world. Hermann Uhde is Wotan, lord of the gods, Ramon Vinay sings his cunning advisor Loge, and the young James McCracken, before his days as a dramatic tenor, shines as the god Froh
