Rodgers and Hammerstein's Carousel : 1994 Broadway cast recording by Richard Rodgers( Recording )

12 editions published between 1977 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Rodgers was the president and producing director of the Music Theater of Lincoln Center, a repertory organization that put on limited-run, summer revivals of Broadway musicals at the newly opened Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City in the 1960s. One of the shows for 1965 was Rodgers' own Carousel, marking its 20th anniversary. John Raitt, the original male lead, returned to the role he had originated. The show opened on August 10 and was well-received. RCA Victor, which contracted to record many of the Lincoln Center shows, also did this one. The result was an excellent album. This 1965 Carousel album ran over 50 minutes (very long for an LP and not bad even for the 1987 CD reissue), notably including a version of the opening scene between Billy Bigelow (Raitt) and Julie Jordan (Eileen Christy) that ran over nine and a half minutes. This was the most complete version of the score yet released. The 48-year-old Raitt, with many performances of the show under his belt, was more mannered than the 28-year-old Raitt had been, but he still owned the role, and the rest of the cast was good

Così fan tutte by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Recording )

21 editions published between 1978 and 1995 in 3 languages and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For a long time, Così fan tutte was considered scandalous. Which is not entirely surprising if you look at its story of two sisters (Maria Ewing and Pilar Lorengar) who jump from grief over their fiancés going off to war to agreeing to marry two attractive strangers (David Rendall and Lenus Carlson) within the space of a couple days. Except the strangers are in fact the fiancés in disguise, and the whole thing is a plot masterminded by a cynical old philosopher (Donald Gramm) and a clever maid (Kathleen Battle). Scandalous or not, Così fan tutte has remained one of opera's most contemporary comedies--especially when conducted masterfully by James Levine

Requiem by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

5 editions published between 1985 and 1995 in Latin and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Never performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra before, and rarely heard in concert at all, the Requiem by Antonín Dvořák captured on this CD from a live concert seems a near-forgotten masterpiece. Dvořák scholar Gervase Hughes cites this work for four soloists, chorus and orchestra as one of the composer's finest sacred creations, 'a deeply moving expression of faith on the part of a composer whose religious conviction never wavered'"--Container
