The great Hans Hotter, in his Met debut season, is magnificent as Wotan in this memorable broadcast of the prologue to Wagner's Ring cycle. He leads an extraordinary cast that also includes Margaret Harshaw as Wotan's wife, Fricka, Set Svanholm as a true heldentenor Loge, the demi-god of fire, Lawrence Davidson as the evil Nibelung dwarf Alberich, and Jarmila Novotná as Freia, the goddess of youth. Jerome Hines and Dezső Ernster are the giants, Fasolt and Fafner, and Karin Branzell sings the Earth goddess, Erda. Fritz Stiedry conducts.This performance is taken from the CD box set Wagner at The Met, released by Sony Classical
Der Ring des Nibelungen by Richard Wagner( Recording )

40 editions published between 1976 and 2012 in German and Undetermined and held by 307 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)

Elektra by Richard Strauss( Recording )

15 editions published between 1952 and 2004 in German and Undetermined and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The legendary Astrid Varnay gives a spectacular performance in the title role of Strauss's one-act masterpiece. Obsessed with avenging the murder of her father, Elektra is blind to the longings of her sister, Chrysothemis (Walburga Wegner), for a peaceful life. She taunts her mother, Klytämnestra (Elisabeth Höngen), with the gruesome fantasy of a bloody death at Elektra's hands. But Varnay's nuanced portrayal of Elektra's tortured soul is at its most gripping in the tender moments of reunion with her brother Orest (Paul Schöffler). The great Fritz Reiner conducts a rich, dramatic performance
