La forza del destino by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

28 editions published between 1977 and 2015 in Italian and English and held by 957 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi painted an immense canvas with this dark but tuneful opera. The legendary Leontyne Price is seen in one of her greatest roles, Leonora. Price's soaring voice encompasses every nuance of Leonora's emotion as she moves from joy through resignation to ultimate heartbreak. James Levine's brilliant leading of the Met orchestra and chorus is a lesson in Verdi style. Giuseppe Giacomini is Alvaro, the man Leonora loves, and Leo Nucci is Don Carlo, the dark instrument of their Fate

I vespri siciliani by Giuseppe Verdi( )

35 editions published between 1974 and 1999 in 5 languages and held by 907 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi's gripping tale of Sicilians rising against the occupying French stars Renata Scotto in her only broadcast of this rarely heard masterpiece. From the beginning of the opera, when Elena (Scotto) sings an "innocent" song fanning the people's resentment against the foreign army, to the end, when the ringing of her wedding bells signals the start of the revolt, Scotto's artistry blazes. James Levine leads the Met Orchestra and Chorus in a wonderfully idiomatic performance, and Ruggero Raimondi is magnificent as Procida, the outlawed Sicilian leader

Esclarmonde by Jules Massenet( Recording )

32 editions published between 1976 and 2012 in French and English and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Parisian audiences in 1889 were thrilled by Massenet's wizardry in telling the story of Esclarmonde, the princess of Byzantium with magical powers, and her love for the heroic knight Roland. But the title role was so difficult that the opera languished for decades, until Joan Sutherland, with her dazzling ability to sing the most fearsome embellishments, brought this jewel of an opera to life for modern audiences
Piano concertos 1-5 ; Choral fantasia by Ludwig van Beethoven( )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in German and No Linguistic content and held by 598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Esta es una grabación milagrosa. El jóven Barenboim es un gran oponente para el magistral Klemperer, que le triplicaba la edad. Es notable encontrar a dos artistas de tan diversas edades que cooperen tan bien. El "Emperador" raramente ha sonado tan magnífico
Thaïs by Jules Massenet( )

23 editions published between 1976 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Take one ascetic monk named Athanaël and one ravishingly beautiful courtesan named Thaïs, add Massenet's sensual, melodious music, with equal dashes of eroticism and religious fervor--and you have a powerful opera that is at once a celebration of the sacred and the profane, of flesh and soul. This rarity had not been heard at the Met for almost 40 years when it was brought back as a vehicle for the great soprano Beverly Sills and the magnetic singing actor Sherrill Milnes. Together, they masterfully bring to life the searing conflict at the heart of the drama
