Dialogues des Carmélites by Francis Poulenc( )

28 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 995 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The tragic fate of the nuns of the Carmelite convent at Copiègne during the French Revolution inspired one of Francis Poulenc's most personal works, and one of the most profoundly moving operas in the repertoire. At its center is Isabel Leonard as Blanche de la Force, a shy young aristocratic woman who joins the order on the eve of the Revolution, flees when the sisters, forced to leave their convent, take a vow of martyrdom, and is finally reunited with them as they face death by the guillotine. Felicity Palmer is Madame de Croissy, Patricia Racette is Madame Lidoine, and Elizabeth Bishop is Mother Marie. Paul Appleby and David Pittsinger co-star as Blanche's brother and father

Saint François d'Assise: Opéra en trois actes
Century rolls ; Lollapalooza ; Slonimsky's earbox by John Adams( Recording )

8 editions published in 2000 in No Linguistic content and Undetermined and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of all the so-called minimalists working today, John Adams is the only one with any good ideas left. Witness this delightful release. The key to Adams's creativity is that he isn't bound by theoretical constraints on what "minimalism" should be. Century Rolls (1995) is a commission by Emanuel Ax, and it was inspired by the composer's listening to a CD recording of an ancient player piano. Century Rolls doesn't duplicate that sound, but it is, instead, an unexpected romp across new rhythmic territory. As for Mr. Ax, he comports himself very well, particularly in the difficult first Movement, which requires deft coordination of all forces involved. The brief Lollapalooza (1995) is more recognizably minimalist but with considerable orchestral color and shifting moods. And Slominsky's Earbox (1996) is a powerfully full-orchestra-driven canter. All this is to say that the CD is one of the best releases of Adams's career, and it will appeal to a very wide audience. --Paul Cook
L'amour de loin by Kaija Saariaho( )

17 editions published in 2009 in 3 languages and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Composed to a libretto by Amin Maalouf and premiered at Salzburg in 2000 in a production by Peter Sellars, L'Amour de loin was Kaija Saariaho's first opera. This reinterpretation of the medieval narrative of the life of the troubadour Jaufré Rudel tackles a number of highly topical themes: love from afar, the virtuality of ideal love, and relations between East and West. -- Provided by the publisher

Peter and the wolf by Sergey Prokofiev( Recording )

11 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in English and Korean and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter and the Wolf is a story about a young boy who conquers a wolf. The boy Peter is represented by a sprightly string quartet, and the Bird sings its trills and runs on the flute. Grandfather's grumbling presence is immediately recognizable on the bassoon and the Cat stalks and preens as a clarinet. Finally there is the Wolf himself, whose sinister musical shape is three French horns. Wolf Tracks is a tale that converts the image of the wolf from a fearsome creature to one that represents the imperative to cherish and protect national resources
