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

Le nozze di Figaro by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

8 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in Italian and No Linguistic content and held by 840 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With James Levine's masterful conducting, Mozart's sublime score works its colorful magic in this upstairs/downstairs drama. Ruggero Raimondi (Figaro) and Kathleen Battle (Susannah) are the servants, caught up in the ongoing domestic drama of the Count and Countess (Thomas Allen and Carol Vaness). Only all is not what it seems, and the battle lines keep shifting in the most unexpected ways. 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

Taped at La Monnaie in Brussels in May 1998, this production of Monteverdi's L'Orfeo has become an operatic classic in a few short years.

Idomeneo by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

19 editions published between 1991 and 2002 in 4 languages and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great Plácido Domingo gives a tour-de-force performance in the title role of the King of Crete--a man caught in a desperate trap of his own making. To survive a storm at sea he has made an oath that now forces him to sacrifice the life of his beloved son, Idamante (sung by an aristocratic Anne Sofie von Otter). Dawn Upshaw is Ilia, the captured Trojan princess who has fallen in love with Idamante--much to the fury of Elettra (the sensational Carol Vaness) who wants the prince for herself. James Levine conducts the Met Orchestra in a passionate account of Mozart's magnificent score
La clemenza di Tito by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Recording )

16 editions published between 1990 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ancient Rome was not a safe place for anyone to live--not even an Emperor renowned for his goodness and wisdom. Between assassination attempts, arson destroying the capitol, and the betrayal by his friends, the Emperor Tito (Frank Lopardo) has his hands full. The renowned mezzo Anne Sofie von Otter is Sesto, the Roman patrician whose obsession with the conniving Vitellia (Melanie Diener) wreaks much of the havoc. James Levine's conducting makes a passionate case for this unjustly neglected Mozart score
