Der fliegende Holländer by Richard Wagner( Recording )

41 editions published between 1955 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner pulled out all the stops in his retelling of the ancient tale of the Flying Dutchman, using the orchestra to paint the scenes vividly in music. At one moment it is a raging storm at sea, the next it lets us experience the magic of two people falling irrevocably in love. Cornell MacNeil, in one of very few German roles he ever sang, is the dark and tortured Dutchman condemned to sail the seas until he find true love. An incandescent Leonie Rysanek, with her unique mix of erotic longing and spiritual bliss, reminds us why Senta was one of her greatest roles

Die Schöpfung by Joseph Haydn( )

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"
