Most widely held works by Herbert Janssen
Tristan und Isolde by Richard Wagner( Recording )

38 editions published between 1943 and 2014 in German and Undetermined and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner's revolutionary score changed the world of music with its radical portrayal of an all-consuming passion that can only be fulfilled in death. The legendary Birgit Nilsson sings Isolde, one of her greatest roles, in her second Met season. Karl Liebl is Tristan, the man she loves--and the best friend of the man she is forced to marry. Jerome Hines is the sorrowful King Marke and Irene Dalis sings Isolde's stalwart companion, Brangäne

Under James Levine's passionate direction, this all-star cast brings Beethoven's magnificent opera to blazing life. Karita Mattila is heartbreaking as Leonore, the wife desperate to find her imprisoned husband, Florestan (Ben Heppner), a victim of his political enemies headed by Don Pizzaro (Sergei Leiferkus). René Pape is Rocco, the good-hearted jailer who can't stand up to his boss but who wants to do the right thing

Tristan & Isolde by Richard Wagner( Recording )

2 editions published in 1991 in German and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Peter Konwitschny's Tristan und Isolde proves to be refreshingly controversial in its interpretation of this grand classic. In his hands, the towering Wagner opera becomes an optimistic work about two people who succeed in finding love." -- Container

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The present documentary includes an exploration of the Third Reich's heroic ideal and examines the way in which Wagner's characters were portrayed onstage at this time, while also seeking answers to questions about Lorenz's career and addressing the complications caused by his private life. The film features archival footage from a period of four decades as well as eyewitness accounts from numerous colleagues and other contemporaries."--Container

Salome by Richard Strauss( Recording )

11 editions published between 1970 and 1999 in German and Undetermined and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This performance presents the great Leonie Rysanek in one of her most memorable roles--the teenage Judean princess Salome. Obsessed with the prophet Jochanaan, the Biblical John the Baptist (Norman Bailey), she skillfully manipulates her lecherous stepfather Herod (Ragnar Ulfung) until he has no choice but to have the holy man killed for spurning the princess's advances. The legendary Astrid Varnay is Salome's mother, Herodias. Highlights of the score include the Dance of the Seven Veils and Salome's final monologue, one of the supreme dramatic achievements in all of opera

This broadcast of Wagner's most romantic opera stars René Kollo as the knight of the Holy Grail who arrives in a boat pulled by a swan to defend the innocent Elsa, played by Pilar Lorengar. Mignon Dunn is the dark and malevolent Ortrud who poisons the couple's happiness, with some help from her husband, Telramund (Donald McIntyre). James Levine leads the Met orchestra, bringing out the shimmer and the thunder of the score, along with every shade of expression in between
Die Walküre by Richard Wagner( Recording )

13 editions published between 1944 and 2002 in German and Undetermined and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Even by the Met's own high standards, this Walküre cast is nothing short of breathtaking. Lauritz Melchior's truly heroic Siegmund beautifully complements Rose Bampton's feminine, appealing Sieglinde. No wonder Helen Traubel (Brünnhilde) melts when she sees the depths of their love for each other. But Kerstin Thorborg's imperious Fricka is unyielding in her demands that her husband, Wotan (Herbert Janssen), punish Siegmund for breaking the laws of marriage. With menacing, black-voiced bass Alexander Kipnis as the aggrieved Hunding, and conducted by George Szell, this is Wagner at his most stirring

Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg by Richard Wagner( Recording )

2 editions published between 1994 and 2002 in German and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Wagner's colorful portrait of medieval Nuremberg, the wealthy Pogner (Ezio Flagello) promises his beautiful daughter Eva (Pilar Lorengar) in marriage to the winner of a song contest. But the girl has already set her sights on the handsome Walther (James King). Naturally, various obstacles have to be overcome before the happy conclusion. Benno Kusche plays Beckmesser, Eva's unsuccessful suitor, and Theo Adam is Hans Sachs, the town's cobbler and reigning poet whose deep insights into human nature make this opera so much more than a delightful comedy. Maestro Thomas Schippers leads the Met's vast orchestral and choral forces
