Most widely held works by René Kollo
Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg by Richard Wagner( Recording )
72 editions published between 1950 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 708 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Not many companies have the resources to put on Wagner's only comedy with all the élan it deserves. The Met does, particularly when Music Director James Levine is conducting: his affection for the work is matched only by his skill at bringing it to life. Levine leads a top-flight cast of solo singers, plus a huge chorus and orchestra. James Morris conveys all of Hans Sachs wisdom, and humanity; Karita Mattila sparkles as Eva, the young woman in love with Walther, the impetuous knight, ardently sung by Ben Heppner

Strauss and Hofmannsthal's sumptuous and magical fairy tale receives an authoritative performance conducted by the great Karl Böhm, a protégé of the composer, in his last Met broadcast. The extraordinary cast is led by Leonie Rysanek as the Empress, the "woman without a shadow" of the title, who stars opposite James King as the ethereal Emperor, Walter Berry as the goodhearted Barak the Dyer, Ursula Schröder-Feinen as the hapless Dyer's Wife, and Mignon Dunn as the sinister Nurse

Der Freischütz by Carl Maria von Weber( Recording )
30 editions published between 1979 and 2000 in 4 languages and held by 208 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)
