Die Walküre by Richard Wagner( Recording )

43 editions published between 1965 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner's drama of overwhelming love and devastating loss has seldom been so vividly brought to life as with this all-star cast of great singing actors. The electrifying combination of Jon Vickers and Leonie Rysanek, as twins who fall in love, is legendary. Birgit Nilsson, the defining Brünnhilde of her generation, gives one of her most touching performances as the daughter of a god who cannot withstand the power of human love. With the great Christa Ludwig as Fricka, and Thomas Stewart's gripping portrayal of Wotan, the unraveling god, this is not to be missed
Parsifal [ein Bühnenweihfestspiel] by Richard Wagner( Recording )

65 editions published between 1970 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner's mystical opera makes extraordinary demands on the conductor, but James Levine is renowned for the special affection and authority he brings to this transcendent work. The music shimmers and glows, evoking the legendary world of the Knights of the Holy Grail and the pure fool who brings healing power to the land. Peter Hofmann stars as the questing title hero, Jerome Hines sings the wise old man, Gurnemanz, and Mignon Dunn is the voluptuous Kundry, whose erotic temptations almost ensnare the young hero

Der Ring des Nibelungen by Richard Wagner( Recording )

26 editions published between 1972 and 2010 in German and Undetermined and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zum 200. Geburtstag von Richard Wagner erscheint bei GoyaLiT sein Meisterwerk "Der Ring des Nibelungen" als Ein-Mann-Hörspiel. Mit seinem Live-Hörspiel-Format Kaminski ON AIR inszeniert Stefan Kaminski das monumentale Meisterwerk um Macht, Liebe, Gier, Rache und die Abgründe der menschlichen Gesellschaft modern und klassisch zugleich. Voller Aberwitz und Komik, sogar Slapstick, dann wieder mit tiefer Tragik in zarten Momenten knapp über der Stille und herrlichem Pathos führt dieser Vierteiler ungebremst in die Apokalypse. Von Musikern begleitet schlüpft der Ausnahmesprecher selbst in alle Rollen, spricht Riesen und Zwerge, Frauen und Männer, Götter und Herrscher, Geliebte und außergewöhnliche Helden. Musik, Atmosphäre und Geräuschmaterial werden live gespielt und erzeugt. "Man sollte den Stoff am besten in groben Zügen kennen, dann nämlich hat man besonders viel Spaß an den Verfremdungen. Kaminskis Ring-Version hat viele parodistische Elemente, macht sich aber nie lustig. Und bei allen klanglichen Unterschieden: Textlich bleibt er nah bei Wagner, durchsetzt die Geschichte dazu mit einer gehörigen Portion Moderne - und mit Zitaten aus Shakespeares "Hamlet" oder Tolkiens "Herr der Ringe". Jeder der vier Teile klingt anders: Das sphärische Rheingold wird gefolgt von der erdig-dumpfen Walküre voller Tuba- und Cello-Klängen, während Siegfried an vielen Stellen wie ein 80er-Jahre-Neue-Deutsche-Welle-Pop-Musical daherkommt" (ndr.de)
