44 editions published between 1966 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 625 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
Die Schöpfung by Joseph Haydn( )

26 editions published between 1974 and 2009 in German and Undetermined and held by 557 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"

Palestrina : [musikalische Legende in drei Akten] by Hans Pfitzner( )

16 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in German and English and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Palestrina is claimed to have 'saved the arts of counterpoint and polyphony' in the face of a Papal edict that church music must be more traditional and revert to plainsong. Palestrina produces a work that contains all the 'modern' and 'sinful' musical styles the Pope disapproves of. Upon hearing the work, the Pope and Palestrina's arch critic, Archbishop Borromeo relents

Die schöne Magelone by Johannes Brahms( )

9 editions published between 1983 and 2015 in German and Undetermined and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Geschichte der schönen Magelone wurzelt eigentlich in orientalischen Erzählungen und in der Sagentradition der Provence. Im 15. Jahrhundert wurde sie auch im deutschsprachigen Raum bekannt. 1797 sorgte Ludwig Tieck für eine romantisch subjektivierte Fassung der Liebesgeschichte. Sie inspirierte Johannes Brahms zu seinem einzigen Liederzyklus. Die von Tieck stammenden Zwischentexte allerdings wirkten etwas antiquiert. Als der Schriftsteller Martin Walser von Christian Gerhaher hörte, dass dieser den Zyklus mit dem eigentlichen Text nicht singen wolle, bot er kurzerhand an, selbst einen zu schreiben und ihn auch im Konzert zu lesen. Walser Begründung für sein Engagement ist dabei so simpel wie überzeugend: So könne er immer dabei sitzen und Gerhaher aus nächster Nähe singen hören (Quelle: BR)
Daphne by Richard Strauss( )

18 editions published between 1982 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 401 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
