Most widely held works by Carl Besl
Elektra : op. 58 by Richard Strauss( )

2 editions published between 1910 and 1943 in German and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most often performed of Strauss' musical works, this landmark of modern opera scandalized early 20th-century audiences with its startling dissonance and unconventional harmonics. Today, it is admired for virtuosic invention of musical ideas and the use of instrumental sonorities to characterize both persons and actions

Ariadne auf Naxos : Op. 60 by Richard Strauss( )

8 editions published between 1943 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the composer's most highly regarded operas, with a libretto by Hugo von Hoffmansthal that artfully intermingles backstage comedy, the lofty emotions of Greek mythology and the merry pranks of a troupe of commedia dell'arte players. Strauss endowed these antic proceedings with a luminous score that combines music of great satiric wit with breathtaking flights of lyricism
