In the courtyard of the palace of Agamemnon, murdered king of Mycenae, Elektra bemoans her father's murder at the hands of her mother, Klytämnestra, and her mother's lover, Aegisth. She vows vengeance. She is interrupted by her younger sister, Chrysothemis, who urges Elektra to give up her obsession with revenge so they both can lead normal lives. Chrysothemis reappears with news that Orest is dead. Stunned, Elektra tells her sister she must now help kill Klytämnestra and Aegisth. When the girl pulls away in terror and runs off, Elektra starts to dig for the buried ax that killed Agamemnon. She is interrupted by a stranger who says he has come to inform Klytämnestra of Orest's death. When Elektra reveals her name, he tells her Orest lives. Servants come and kiss his hand. The dogs of the house know me, he says, but not my own sister. Crying his name, Elektra falls into Orest's arms and tells him she has lived only for his return. Their reunion is cut short when Orest is summoned before Klytämnestra. He kills both the queen and her lover. Elektra begins an ecstatic dance and when Chryothemis returns, Elektra falls dead

Stabat Mater by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi( )

30 editions published between 1977 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bartoli continues her exploration of Steffani's music by championing his last and greatest masterpiece - her first Stabat Mater since the best-selling Pergolesi recording.&quot;La Bartoli sings as enthrallingly as ever, and with this new CD reasserts her place as No.1 in the international diva firmament.&quot; - Financial Times Germany on Mission. Cecilia Bartoli&#39;s exploration of the music of Steffani continues on from her best-selling recording &lsquo;Mission&#39; with an album of the celebrated Stabat Mater alongside Steffani&#39;s greatest sacred works for chorus, orchestra and soloists, constituting the most comprehensive collection of Steffani&#39;s sacred choral music on CD. Bartoli leads an array of internationally celebrated singers including countertenor Franco Fagioli, the bass Salvo Vitale and the two young German tenors Daniel Behle and Julian Pr&eacute;gardien. Steffani&#39;s Stabat Mater is his masterpiece, completed shortly before he died in 1728. It has been described as the most powerful expression of his religious fervour and, at almost half an hour, the largest-scale, most complex and heartfelt of his compositions outside his operas. The opening solo &quot;Stabat Mater dolorosa&quot; featured on the &lsquo;Mission&#39; DVD. The album is completed by six world premiere recordings of the best of Steffani&#39;s remaining sacred music, including Sperate in Deo and Laudate Pueri. These are scored for orchestra, chorus and soloists featuring two young baroque-specialist sopranos Nuria Rial and Yetzabel Arias Fernandez alongside Behle, Pregardien and Vitale. Also amongst these world premieres is Non plus me Ligate, a seven-minute solo motet for Cecilia Bartoli. Released in the same month is an album of Steffani&#39;s greatest orchestral music &lsquo;Ouvertures et Danzes&#39; with Diego Fasolis and I Barocchisti</p>
Der Freischutz by Carl Maria von Weber( Recording )

55 editions published between 1960 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner said this early-Romantic gem was the most German of German operas. Its irresistible mix of colorful folklore, the spooky supernatural, a tender romance, and the passionate struggle between good and evil are all captured in Weber's tuneful and dramatic score. The cast in this rare U.S. performance is sensational: Sándor Kónya as our hero, the forester Max, who must win a shooting contest in order to marry his beloved Agathe (the ravishing Pilar Lorengar), despite the dark plotting of Caspar (Gerd Feldhoff)
Ode an die freiheit Ode to freedom : Symphonie No. 9, op. 125 by Ludwig van Beethoven( Recording )

8 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Schöpfung by Joseph Haydn( Recording )

45 editions published between 1966 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Haydn gave birth to a new type of oratorio that reflected perfectly the spirit of his time. With German texts, direct expression of feelings and many grand choruses, it stood for the transition from the aristocracy to a bourgeois society, in which music-making in a group was seen as an expression of civil pride. Extremely popular with amateur choirs, performances with a large ensemble became the rule until well into the 20th century. And the 1960 Electrola recording represents this tradition, with a top-class trio of soloists consisting of the great Elisabeth Grummer, outstanding tenor Josef Traxel and Gottlob Frick, "the blackest of all bass singers"

31 editions published between 1970 and 1989 in 4 languages and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Daphne by Richard Strauss( Recording )

17 editions published between 1983 and 2011 in German and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classical tragedy tells of the eponymous heroine, a sunlight-worshipping virgin who has no interest in earthbound romantic relationships. Unable to return her childhood-friend Leukippos's affections, and unwilling to don a special dress for the Dionysian festival, Daphne soon encounters a mysterious stranger, in the guise of a herdsman, who makes an unsuccessful attempt to wheedle her into romance. He ultimately reveals himself as Apollo, the god of the sun, and enters a violent rivalry with Leukippos for Daphne's affections that ends tragically for all

Das Land des Lächelns by Franz Lehár( )

32 editions published between 1967 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Franz Lehár developed the operetta far beyond the waltz-laden entertainment that was its origin; he orientated himself far more towards the opera. He took as his role model Puccini, as is evident in his Land des Lächelns (Land of Smiles), a bittersweet love story set in far-away Japan, and including the operetta hit "Dein ist mein ganzes Herz" ("You are my heart's delight"). Lehár's eponymous Tsarevich too is full of passion and melancholy, bursting with Russian charm. In Friederike Lehár tells the famous love story of the young Goethe and Friederike Brion with tender simplicity
