The fairy queen by Henry Purcell( )

28 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 748 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 'The Fairy Queen,' two artistic geniuses met. The scenario is an adaptation of William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream; the music is by Henry Purcell, the greatest English composer of his day. The result is one of the first great operas, a dazzling display of music and emotion that has lost none of its power since its premiere in 1692. Much of the music has come to have a life beyond the opera itself: songs such as "The Plaint," "Thrice Happy Lovers" and "Hark! The Echoing air" now regularly grace the concert hall stage, a delight for singers and audiences alike. This studio recording was made with Australia's pre-eminent independent opera company, Pinchgut Opera, in 2003, and is re-released here in deluxe packaging. The cast features the finest Australian singers (Sara Macliver, Sally-Anne Russell and Paul McMahon to name but three) under the direction of Baroque specialist Antony Walker. The period instruments of the Orchestra of the Antipodes provide accompaniment of vibrant colour and immediacy." -- Jbhifi.com.au

Má vlast by Bedřich Smetana( )

11 editions published in 1997 in 3 languages and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Smetanas Zyklus Mein Vaterland ist inspiriert von der Mythologie und der Schönheit seiner tschechischen Heimat. Besonders bekannt wurde daraus "Die Moldau". In diesem Satz zeichnet er den Weg des Flusses von der Quelle bis zur Einmündung in die Elbe nach. Aber auch die anderen 5 Sätze (u.a. Aus Böhmens Hain und Flur) greifen Elemente der böhmischen Geschichte, seiner Sagen und Landschaften auf. - Colin Davis und das London Symphony Orchestra, zuvor mit Aufnahmen des anderen tschechischen Nationalkomponisten Antonín Dvorak gefeiert, präsentieren die musikalischen Schönheiten dieses Zyklus'. "Nur wenige musikalische Flüsse beschleunigten sich so wie Davis' Moldau oder begannen ihren Lauf mit solch bezaubernden murmelnden Flöten", schrieb The Times über das mitgeschnittene Konzert.
