Most widely held works by Gundula Janowitz
Le nozze di Figaro : K. 492 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Recording )

7 editions published between 1968 and 1996 in Italian and English and held by 1,099 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ariadne auf Naxos by Richard Strauss( )

49 editions published between 1968 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,053 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great Jessye Norman is Ariadne, the mythological heroine abandoned by her lover on the island of Naxos. In Strauss and Hofmannsthal's charming opera-within-an-opera, she is joined by Ruth Ann Swenson as Zerbinetta, the flirtatious leader of a commedia dell'arte troupe that--by order of an eccentric patron--unexpectedly finds itself in the middle of Ariadne's tragic story. Thomas Moser sings Bacchus, the young god who wins Ariadne, and Susanne Mentzer is the Composer of the fictional opera. Wagnerian bass-baritone Thomas Stewart makes a late-career cameo appearance as the Music Master
Der Freischutz by Carl Maria von Weber( Recording )

67 editions published between 1973 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 1,030 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner said this early-Romantic gem was the most German of German operas. Its irresistible mix of colorful folklore, the spooky supernatural, a tender romance, and the passionate struggle between good and evil are all captured in Weber's tuneful and dramatic score. The cast in this rare U.S. performance is sensational: Sándor Kónya as our hero, the forester Max, who must win a shooting contest in order to marry his beloved Agathe (the ravishing Pilar Lorengar), despite the dark plotting of Caspar (Gerd Feldhoff)
Die Zauberflote by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

51 editions published between 1964 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 1,028 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

18. Jahrhundert; Oper
Die Schöpfung = The creation by Joseph Haydn( Recording )

76 editions published between 1966 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 978 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)
