Most widely held works by Ekkehard Wlaschiha
Palestrina : [musikalische Legende in drei Akten] by Hans Pfitzner( )

17 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 592 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Palestrina is claimed to have 'saved the arts of counterpoint and polyphony' in the face of a Papal edict that church music must be more traditional and revert to plainsong. Palestrina produces a work that contains all the 'modern' and 'sinful' musical styles the Pope disapproves of. Upon hearing the work, the Pope and Palestrina's arch critic, Archbishop Borromeo relents
Der Ring des Nibelungen by Richard Wagner( Visual )

15 editions published between 1991 and 2003 in German and English and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Götterdämmerung by Richard Wagner( Visual )

20 editions published between 1990 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this final segment of the "Ring cycle," Wagner brings the double tragedy of Wotan and Siegfried full circle. Brünnhilde declares that Wotan is all-powerful and everlasting. With helmet and gleaming armour, she rides through the air leading a resurrected Siegfried by the hand. Siegfried is reconciled with Wotan, and society is cured of its ills
Parsifal by Richard Wagner( )

12 editions published between 1994 and 2001 in 4 languages and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The mystical enchantment of Wagner's last opera means it has special place in the hearts of opera lovers. On the surface, it's the story of Parsifal's quest to restore the Holy Grail. But for many listeners it is also a profound inner journey that takes them to a unique place. James Levine's conducting of the work has become legendary, and our all-star cast, with Plácido Domingo in the title role, is on the same exalted plane. Violeta Urmana is the temptress Kundry and Ekkehard Wlaschiha is the evil magician Klingsor
Siegfried by Richard Wagner( Visual )

25 editions published between 1990 and 2002 in 4 languages and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The third opera in the "Ring cycle." Siegfried follows the adventures of the son of demigods Siegmund and Sieglinde as he conquers his enemies and rescues the beauteous Brunnhilde with the help of his magic sword
Der Freischutz by Carl Maria von Weber( )

21 editions published between 1985 and 2008 in German and Undetermined and held by 414 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)
Das Rheingold by Richard Wagner( Recording )

26 editions published between 1989 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Under James Levine's thrilling direction the famous Met Orchestra is at its best in this first installment of Wagner's Ring cycle. From the dark, mysterious beginning in the depths of the Rhine River to the blazing end as the gods cross the rainbow bridge into their new home of Valhalla, this is a searing performance. James Morris is the commanding Wotan, the god who thinks he has everything under control, even as he unwittingly sows the seeds of his own destruction
Lohengrin by Richard Wagner( )

19 editions published between 1991 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recorded June 1990, Festspielhaus, Bayreuth
Das Rheingold by Richard Wagner( Visual )

Wozzeck by Alban Berg( )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in German and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The history of Wozzeck began nearly 200 years ago, when Johann Christian Woyzeck, a onetime soldier and jobless wigmaker, killed his sweetheart with a knife in a fit of jealous rage. The tragic incident provided the material for the German playwright Georg Büchner, who interpreted the fate of Woyzeck as a mass phenomenon; in his play, Büchner portrays the convicted murdered as a hopeless, compulsive creature, a mere cog in the wheels of a destructive and repressive system that tramples all human values underfoot. Such is the message communicated in Alban Berg’s setting of the work, which was premiered more than 100 years later in Berlin..."--Presto Classical website
SCHOENBERG : Moses und Aron by Arnold Schoenberg( )

4 editions published between 1976 and 1994 in German and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Schoenberg's masterpiece in the twelve-tone system he developed was his unfinished opera, a vastly complex work based on a single tone row that it remained a fragment may be essential to its spiritual message, for while Schoenberg never stated it explicitly, it would seem that he left this most ambitious project of his mature style incomplete on purpose
Fidelio : op. 72 : highlights by Ludwig van Beethoven( )

2 editions published in 1993 in German and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ein Opern-Abend mit Ute Terkel-Buckhardt by Ute Trekel-Burckhardt( )

Siegfried by Richard Wagner( Recording )

15 editions published between 1990 and 2012 in German and Undetermined and held by 215 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
Fidelio, op. 72 by Ludwig van Beethoven( Recording )

6 editions published in 1990 in 4 languages and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fidelio, Beethoven's only opera, was based on J.N. Bouilly's Léonore, ou L'amour conjugal, a rescue drama typical of the literature of the French Revolution. The story, possibly derived from a real incident, is a convoluted one, but its celebration of courage and idealism in the face of tyranny greatly appealed to the composer's personal values. The opera took a decade to reach its final form, and even though the work of the librettists in adapting the material left much to be desired -- Joseph Sonnleithner's rather turgid original efforts of 1805-1806 were only partially redeemed by the revisions of Georg Friedrich Treitschke in 1814 -- the end result, thanks to the extraordinary quality of the music, is one of the most powerful and moving operas ever written. - Disc 1 insert p. 3
