Die Ägyptische Helena by Richard Strauss( )

11 editions published between 1956 and 2007 in German and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deborah Voigt brings sumptuous vocalism and dramatic presence to the title role of Strauss and Hofmannsthal's re-imagination of the Helen myth. Set in the aftermath of the Trojan War, the story is based on the premise that the Helen who came to Troy was a phantom, while the real, faithful one was spirited away. After the war, she is reunited with her husband, Menelas, sung by Torsten Kerl. Diana Damrau is Aithra, the sorceress who helps Helen regain Menelas's love, and Wolfgang Brendel sings Altair, a desert chieftain who falls in love with Helen. Fabio Luisi conducts the ravishing score

Barbara Bonney sings Zdenka, Arabella's younger sister, and Raymond Very is Matteo, the officer who thinks he is in love with Arabella but unexpectedly finds his happiness elsewhere.

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

8 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in German and Undetermined and held by 251 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
Der Rosenkavalier by Richard Strauss( )

5 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in German and Undetermined and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Karl Bohm's only studio version of the work was recorded in 1958. When Deutsche Grammophon originally planned to record the work, there were already two rival versions on the market: the Decca recording under Erich Kleiber and EMI's version under Herbert von Karajan. Karajan's recording was made in December 1956 and should have included Irmgard Seefried as Octavian and Rita Streich as Sophie, but in both cases cast changes became necessary: Seefried was replaced by the young Christa Ludwig, and pregnancy forced Rita Streich to withdraw. As a result, Deutsche Grammophon was able to use both these singers for its own recording exactly two years later. It boasts a wonderful cast, with the full-throated Marianne Schech as the Marschallin, Irmgard Seefried bringing a range of colour to the 'trouser' role of Octavian, Rita Streich light and exquisite as Sophie, and a rounded, lyrical portrait of Faninal from Fischer-Dieskau. The recording also reunited Bohm with his 'old' orchestra, the Dresden Staatskapelle, an orchestra often referred to as the Zauberharfe or Magic Harp for the fluent and airborne quality of its sound
