L'Orfeo by Claudio Monteverdi( Recording )

58 editions published between 1968 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 708 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Taped at La Monnaie in Brussels in May 1998, this production of Monteverdi's L'Orfeo has become an operatic classic in a few short years. Choreographer/director Trisha Brown, conductor René Jacobs, and designer Roland Aeschlimann have created an ideal fusion of words, action, sight, and sound, one that never lets the viewer down and manages to tell the story in an elegant, unusual, and ultimately intensely moving manner
Missa solemnis by Ludwig van Beethoven( )

3 editions published in 2016 in Latin and held by 605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The performances of the Missa solemnis at the Styriarte Festival in Graz and at the Salzburg Festival in summer 2015 were Nikolaus Harnoncourt's last concerts. After his retirement from the stage later that year, it was Mr. Harnoncourt's express wish that this album, made from the material captured at the Graz concerts and rehearsals, also be his last released recordings. Beethoven's late masterpiece has thus become the final chapter of an unparalleled discography spanning 65 years

Symphonies 4 & 5 by Ludwig van Beethoven( )

14 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in No Linguistic content and Undetermined and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die ganz großen Kunstwerke haben am Ende immer noch ein Rätsel. Die bleiben immer unerklärbar. Weil der ganz große Künstler aus einer Fantasie schöpft, die dem gewöhnlichen Sterblichen nicht zugänglich ist. [] Die Fünfte Symphonie von Beethoven ist wahrscheinlich die einzige Nicht-Symphonie von allen. [] Keine Rede vom Schicksal, das an die Pforte pocht. Für mich ist klar, dass in der Symphonie nicht auf die Türe von außen gepocht wird, sondern dass hier eine Tür nach außen aufgeht ins Freie. (Nikolaus Harnoncourt)

Die Schöpfung = The Creation by Joseph Haydn( )

14 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This marvellous recording, sung in German, comes as a surprise, since Bernard Haitink is not obviously associated with Haydn. In fact he didn't tackle The Creation until 2011, when he was 82. He approaches this great choral masterpiece with wit, unhurried grandeur, riveting orchestral detail and forward momentum - in short, with just the acuity he brings to anything he conducts. (....) Gabriel (soprano Camilla Tilling), Uriel (tenor Mark Padmore), and Raphael (bass Hanno Müller-Brachmann). Choir, orchestra and soloists are on sparkling form in this live recording - an invigorating reminder, if any were needed, of Haydn's genius" (The Guardian)
