Parsifal [ein Bühnenweihfestspiel] by Richard Wagner( )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in German and No Linguistic content and held by 573 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner's mystical opera makes extraordinary demands on the conductor, but James Levine is renowned for the special affection and authority he brings to this transcendent work. The music shimmers and glows, evoking the legendary world of the Knights of the Holy Grail and the pure fool who brings healing power to the land. Peter Hofmann stars as the questing title hero, Jerome Hines sings the wise old man, Gurnemanz, and Mignon Dunn is the voluptuous Kundry, whose erotic temptations almost ensnare the young hero

Der Freischutz by Carl Maria von Weber( Recording )

17 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 433 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)

Angel dances by Berliner Philharmoniker( )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There's nothing better than to take works from different genres and arrange and present them to our listeners as something familiar yet dressed in an entirely new garb. For the programme on this disc, some of the \\ MUSIC that has been selected is sacred in origin, while some of it merely awakens religious associations. Despite the sharp contrasts between them, all the pieces here are linked by a common objective: to seduce the listener away to a distant world--one that will leave him or her enthralled, enchanted, or consoled, but never unmoved
