Les Troyens by Hector Berlioz( )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in French and Undetermined and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Performances of Berlioz's epic masterpiece are rare events--under James Levine's inspired leadership, the stellar cast and the Met's chorus and orchestra triumphantly meet the enormous challenge. Ben Heppner is the legendary Trojan hero Aeneas who escapes the doomed city of Troy and falls in love with the beautiful Queen of Carthage, Dido, sung by the radiant Lorraine Hunt Lieberson in her final appearance at the Met. Deborah Voigt is breathtaking as Cassandra, the Trojan prophetess who sees the looming calamity but is ignored
Die Schöpfung by Joseph Haydn( )

13 editions published in 2007 in German and Undetermined and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This marvellous recording, sung in German, comes as a surprise, since Bernard Haitink is not obviously associated with Haydn. In fact he didn't tackle The Creation until 2011, when he was 82. He approaches this great choral masterpiece with wit, unhurried grandeur, riveting orchestral detail and forward momentum - in short, with just the acuity he brings to anything he conducts. (....) Gabriel (soprano Camilla Tilling), Uriel (tenor Mark Padmore), and Raphael (bass Hanno Müller-Brachmann). Choir, orchestra and soloists are on sparkling form in this live recording - an invigorating reminder, if any were needed, of Haydn's genius" (The Guardian)
