Tristan und Isolde by Richard Wagner( Recording )

56 editions published between 1953 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 997 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner's revolutionary score changed the world of music with its radical portrayal of an all-consuming passion that can only be fulfilled in death. The legendary Birgit Nilsson sings Isolde, one of her greatest roles, in her second Met season. Karl Liebl is Tristan, the man she loves--and the best friend of the man she is forced to marry. Jerome Hines is the sorrowful King Marke and Irene Dalis sings Isolde's stalwart companion, Brangäne
Tannhäuser by Richard Wagner( Recording )

80 editions published between 1959 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner worked on Tannhäuser, his fifth opera, from 1842 to 1845, conducting the first performance on October 19, 1845 at the Dresden Royal Opera. The first two nights were uncertaqin successes, but by the third performance the opera began to have its effect on the audience. Over the next few years it became enormously popular throughout Germany, then moved to other countries. In 1859 it became the first Wagner opera to be performed in America. By 1861 Tannhäuser had been given hundreds of times, when Wagner was called upon to produce a revised version for the Paris Opéra. Despite the composer's efforts to adapt the work for French tastes, anti-Wagner riots broke out and he withdrew the work. It was not seen again in France until 1895. Meanwhile Tannhäuser, in the Dresden version, opened the second season of New York's Metropolitan Opera in November of 1884. Nowadays either the Dresden or Paris version may be given, depending on the director's preference; the current recording is an amalgam of the two. -- Page [1-2] of program notes

Der Ring des Nibelungen by Richard Wagner( Recording )

76 editions published between 1953 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 394 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" (
