An adaptation of the Cinderella story. The story is the familiar fairy tale but with the fairy element left out. In place of the fairy godmother, we have Alidoro, a philosophic person and friend of the Prince. The glass slipper is replaced with a pair of bracelets. One of these bracelets is given to the Prince at the ball and recognition of the other leads to the customary happy ending

Based on real events and playwright Georg Büchner's starkly vehement text, Alban Berg's tragic opera is an epoch-making work, in stark contrast to the previous high romantic ideals of the genre, that led Schoenberg to exclaim 'now that's what I call an opera!'

Das Lied von der Erde by Gustav Mahler( )

5 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in German and Undetermined and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der deutsche Bariton Christian Gerhaher ist zweifellos einer der besten Liedsänger der Welt. Auf seiner neuen CD widmet er sich gemeinsam mit Kent Nagano und dem Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal sowie Klaus Florian Vogt, Tenor, erstmals Mahlers berühmtem Werk "Das Lied von der Erde", seiner Vertonung von sieben Gedichten für Tenor, Alt und Orchester, laut Mahlers eigenem Bekunden "das Persönlichste, was ich je geschrieben habe". Das Werk komponierte Mahler 1907, einem Jahr, in dem sein Leben durch mehrere schwere Schicksalsschläge (dem Tod seiner Tochter, dem Rücktritt als Direktor der Wiener Hofoper und eigener Krankheit) gezeichnet war. Christian Gerhaher, Klaus Florian Vogt und dem Orchester unter Nagano gelingt es, die Tiefen und die Farbigkeit von Mahlers Werk in allen Details auszuloten. Nr. 1 Das Trinklied vom Jammer der Erde: Allegro pesante Nr. 2 Der Einsame im Herbst: Etwas schleichend. Ermüdet Nr. 3 Von der Jugend: Behaglich heiter Nr. 4 Von der Schönheit: Comodo. Dolcissimo Nr. 5 Der Trunkene im Frühling: Allegro Nr. 6 Der Abschied: Schwer
