Der heitere Mozart by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

22 editions published between 1900 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Der heitere Mozart" tar for seg en lang rekke av komponistens mer sprø, musikalske innfall. Mozart (1756 – 1791) var en glad laks og en stor del av hans produksjon går inn under den kategorien som kalles underholdningsmusikk. Her finner vi lette, morsomme stykker og småserenader. I tillegg har man på platen fått plass til en rekke såkalte kanons, viser Mozart selv skrev teksten til. Enkelte av disse visene har på grunn av komponistens noe frivole sans for analhumor fått et visst rykte som noen skikkelige griseviser. Aftenpostens klassiskspaltist kaller denne platen for " en av de artigste Mozart-utgivelser som eksisterer"

Der Rosenkavalier by Richard Strauss( )

Karl Bohm's only studio version of the work was recorded in 1958. When Deutsche Grammophon originally planned to record the work, there were already two rival versions on the market: the Decca recording under Erich Kleiber and EMI's version under Herbert von Karajan. Karajan's recording was made in December 1956 and should have included Irmgard Seefried as Octavian and Rita Streich as Sophie, but in both cases cast changes became necessary: Seefried was replaced by the young Christa Ludwig, and pregnancy forced Rita Streich to withdraw. As a result, Deutsche Grammophon was able to use both these singers for its own recording exactly two years later. It boasts a wonderful cast, with the full-throated Marianne Schech as the Marschallin, Irmgard Seefried bringing a range of colour to the 'trouser' role of Octavian, Rita Streich light and exquisite as Sophie, and a rounded, lyrical portrait of Faninal from Fischer-Dieskau. The recording also reunited Bohm with his 'old' orchestra, the Dresden Staatskapelle, an orchestra often referred to as the Zauberharfe or Magic Harp for the fluent and airborne quality of its sound

Der Freischutz by Carl Maria von Weber( Recording )

26 editions published between 1969 and 2013 in German and Undetermined and held by 208 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)

Siegfried by Richard Wagner( Recording )

18 editions published between 1973 and 1997 in German and Undetermined and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is one of the legendary performances from the Met's vast archive of historic broadcasts. The incomparable Lauritz Melchior stars in the title role of the young hero who sets out to explore the world--killing the fierce dragon Fafner (Eduard Habich) and the evil dwarf Mime (Karl Laufkötter) along the way. When Wotan (the great Friedrich Schorr) tries to stop him, Siegfried uses his sword to break the god's spear and makes his way to the sleeping Brünnhilde (a radiant Kirsten Flagstad). He awakens her with a kiss--and sets in motion the events that, in the following opera, will bring about the end of the world. Kerstin Thorborg co-stars as Erda and Artur Bodanzky conducts
