Frederica von Stade is Cherubino, the young page body who's in love with love and who keeps complicating everyone's best laid plans at exactly the wrong times

Arias by Johann Sebastian Bach ( Recording )
14 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Bach's cantatas make use of an amazing diversity of instruments, both old and new. Among the 'new' instruments was the violoncello piccolo, a rare type of cello that was popular for a brief period at the beginning of the eighteenth century. The addition of a fifth, higher string provided the instrument a unique lightness and delicacy in the upper registers. This collection featuring cellist Ophelie Gaillard and the ensemble Pulcinella focuses on arias from Bach's cantatas that are scored for the violoncello piccolo. The arias are interspersed with instrumental transcriptions from the Sch++bler Chorales and the Orgelb++chlein. Vocal soloists include soprano Sandrine Piau, tenor Emiliano Gonzalez Toro and alto Christophe Dumaux

L'elisir d'amore by Gaetano Donizetti ( Recording )
23 editions published between 1989 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This performance showcases Luciano Pavarotti at his magnificent best. The role of good hearted Nemorino might have been written just for him. Hopelessly in love with wealthy Adina (Kathleen Battle), Nemorino watches, helpless, as flashy Sergeant Belcore (Gino Quilico) seems to win her heart. Enter Dr. Dulcamara (Paul Plishka). He's a quack, but Nemorino believes that the love potion Dulcamara is peddling will help him win Adina's love. It's only a bottle of plain old Bordeaux, but never underestimate the power of true love -- or of Luciano Pavarotti's seductive tenor
