Fiddler on the roof by Norman Jewison( Visual )

66 editions published between 1971 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 4,021 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tevye is a poor Jewish milkman with five unmarried daughters to support in a village in Czarist Russia. With a sharp tongued wife at home and growing anti-Semitism in the village, Tevye talks to God about his troubles. His people's traditions keep him strong when his existence is as precariously balanced as a fiddler on the roof
Piano quartets by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

10 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in No Linguistic content and German and held by 1,391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a wonderful recording of two indispensable masterpieces. By adding the viola, which he loved to play, to the popular piano trio, Mozart became "the father of the piano quartet" with these very different works, the first somber and dramatic, though it ends with a sprightly finale, the second lyrical and serene. Mozart treats all the instruments as equals, but primarily alternates piano and strings, bringing them together in climactic moments. This means that the musicians must inwardly participate in the music-making during long rests to create continuity and seamless give-and-take, a subtle problem these performers solve admirably. These four superb soloists have a rapport so strong that thoughts and feelings seem to flow between them in an unbroken current. Their playing is technically impeccable; their phrasing and style are unanimous, elegant, and flexible; their tone, though each player has a different one, is beautiful and expressive; the piano sings ravishingly; Ax adds discreet, improvisatory embellishments, especially in repeats. They bring out all of Mozart's mercurial moods, the light and shadow, repose and passion, joy and sorrow. --Edith Eisler

Then the orchestra performs the complete concerto again to accompany the "solo performance."

Le quattro stagioni = (The four seasons) by Antonio Vivaldi( Recording )

25 editions published between 1983 and 1986 in 4 languages and held by 610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Together with the star players of Brecon Baroque, Podger guides listeners through the cycle of nature and life. Vivaldi's Four Seasons have become one of classical music's best loved works. However, most recordings adopt a strikingly similar approach to these scores, and familiarity has blunted the music's edge. Podger's new recording aims to reset the clock, refocusing on the ingredients that make it so special and reminding listeners of the remarkable freshness of Vivaldi's invention
