Ein deutsches Requiem : op. 45 by Johannes Brahms( )

21 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in German and Undetermined and held by 769 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Deutsche Requiem von Brahms gehört in der Musikgeschichte zu den bekanntesten und umfangreichsten Requiem-Kompositionen. Die Texte sind der Luther-Bibel entnommen und setzen den Schwerpunkt auf den Trost der Lebenden für ihren Verlust und die Hoffnung auf Auferstehung. Marin Alsop gehört inzwischen nicht nur zu den bekanntesten NAXOS-Dirigentinnen sondern hat auch weltweit einen hervorragenden Ruf als Meisterin ihres Fachs. Diese Aufnahme gibt eindrucksvoll die heraus-ragende Zusammenarbeit Alsops mit dem Leipziger MDR Rundfunkchor- und Orchester wieder. Sopranistin Anna Lucia Richter ist Preisträgerin zahlreicher Wettbewerbe und hatte zuletzt großen Erfolg in Aufttritten u.a. mit dem Gürzenich Orchester Köln, dem WDR Rundfunkorchester, und dem HR Frankfurt. "Die Dirigentin, die heute das Baltimore Symphony Orchestra leitet, gab ihr Europa-Debüt 1993 beim Schleswig-Holstein-Festival. Seitdem ist sie hier immer wieder gern unterwegs, vorrangig mit den Werken zeitgenössischer amerikanischer und deutscher Komponisten. Dass ausgerechnet Johannes Brahms auf dem Programm des "Zauber der Musik" steht kommt nicht von ungefähr. Marin Alsop arbeitet gerade an einer Brahms Gesamteinspielung, die demnächst erscheinen wird. Für "Ein deutsches Requiem" hat sie sich für die Ensembles des MDR entschieden" (mdr.de)
Parsifal : [ein Bühnenweihfestspiel] by Richard Wagner( )

15 editions published between 1983 and 2013 in German and No Linguistic content and held by 713 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

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.

Angel dances by Berliner Philharmoniker( )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 377 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

Der Freischutz by Carl Maria von Weber( Recording )

17 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 315 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)
