Manon by Jules Massenet( )

3 editions published between 1992 and 2000 in German and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For Manon I could have given up my hopes of heaven itself," declares her lover des Grieux--after utterly ruining himself for her and following her into a destitute exile in an alien country. In Massenet's adaptation of Abbé Prévost's novel, Anna Moffo is a perfect Manon--beautiful, enticing, and offering the promise of pleasure that makes everything else fade into insignificance. The great Nicolai Gedda sings her enthralled lover. Thomas Schippers conducts the glittering, sumptuous score that brings to life the story from its heady beginning to its heart-wrenching end
Symphony no. 1 ; Tragic overture ; Academic festival overture by Gustav Mahler( )

and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written when the composer was only in his late twenties, Mahler's first symphony is a study in optimism. 'In full sail' (his original title for the second movement) could be a motto for the whole work. In this vast symphony, we hear his love of nature and beauty, Mahler's childhood memories, fragments of distant military music, birdsong and even Yiddish folk tunes as they blend together into a paean to life and hope

Land des Lächelns by Franz Lehár( )

3 editions published in 2015 in 3 languages and held by 70 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

James Levine leads the Met orchestra, bringing out the shimmer and the thunder of the score, along with every shade of expression in between
