Der Rosenkavalier by Richard Strauss( )

170 editions published between 1957 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 3,248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Strauss's poignant fairy tale of 18th-century Vienna is brilliantly realized by a glittering cast under the musical direction of the great Karl Böhm, a friend and protégé of the composer. Vienna's own Leonie Rysanek is the beautiful and wise Marschallin, the woman who knows her affair with the impetuous Octavian (a superb Christa Ludwig) will not last forever. The enchanting Reri Grist sings Sophie, the girl who captures the young man's heart. Water Berry is appropriately loveable and boorish as Sophie's would-be fiancé, the rustic Baron Ochs, who becomes the victim of Octavian's elaborate joke. Nicolai Gedda is luxuriously cast as the Italian Singer

Die Walküre by Richard Wagner( )

104 editions published between 1965 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 1,598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner's drama of overwhelming love and devastating loss has seldom been so vividly brought to life as with this all-star cast of great singing actors. The electrifying combination of Jon Vickers and Leonie Rysanek, as twins who fall in love, is legendary. Birgit Nilsson, the defining Brünnhilde of her generation, gives one of her most touching performances as the daughter of a god who cannot withstand the power of human love. With the great Christa Ludwig as Fricka, and Thomas Stewart's gripping portrayal of Wotan, the unraveling god, this is not to be missed

Missa solemnis by Ludwig van Beethoven( )

30 editions published between 1959 and 2020 in 5 languages and held by 1,172 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
Norma by Vincenzo Bellini( )

62 editions published between 1951 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Si hay un caso de identificación entre un cantante y un personaje, ese es sin duda el de María Callas y Norma. Esta segunda grabación realizada para EMI (esta vez con sonido estéreo) se puede considerar como una declaración de principios de lo que era el canto para Callas. Una mujer madura despechada y abandonada por su amante no puede cantar como un jilguero; así el deterioro vocal que presentaba en 1960 lo convierte en una ayuda para la caracterización dramática del personaje
Parsifal by Richard Wagner( )

75 editions published between 1973 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,080 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hearing either Jon Vickers or Christa Ludwig, two of the most riveting singing actors of their time, in Parsifal would be cause for celebration. This recording presents both of these great artists in their only joint broadcast of Wagner's mystical opera, with James Levine bringing his own special magic to the occasion, making it indeed a Parsifal for the ages. Martti Talvela is an authoritative, compassionate Gurnemanz and Bernd Weikl a memorable Amfortas
