One finger too many by Alfred Brendel( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A master of the piano, Alfred Brendel here turns in a deft performance as poet, building fantastic little "word machines" of extraordinary tensile strength. We are drawn immediately into a fun-house world of suspicious but wondrous goings-on: The supernumerary index finger of the pianist in the title poem, we're told, sometimes pointed out "an obstinate cougher in the hall/or emerged from beneath his tailcoat/beckoning a lady in the third row." Elsewhere, Beethoven, disguised as Salieri, poisons a sleeping Mozart and skulks away clutching, forever, Mozart's greatest possession - the key of C minor. And the conceptual artist Christo wraps the Three Tenors on the balcony of La Scala. These constantly surprising poems enchant even as they sting, revealing the light (and dark) side of Alfred Brendel, one of the world's greatest musicians. His followers will have to have this book, but so will anyone who enjoys readable poetry touched by a divine madness." --Book Jacket
Wozzeck by Alban Berg( )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Levine, a longtime champion of this groundbreaking work, has conducted every Met performance of Wozzeck since 1974. He brings Berg's revolutionary score to dramatic life in this broadcast, leading an extraordinary cast headed by Christian Boesch and Hildegard Behrens. Boesch gives a heartbreaking performance as the poor, abused soldier of the title, and Behrens is stunning as his faithless and conflicted wife, Marie. Richard Cassilly sings the vain Drum Major who seduces her, and Ragnar Ulfung and Franz Mazura are the Captain and the Doctor, who mock and torture Wozzeck
Lulu [Oper in drei Akten nach den Tragödien Erdgeist und Büchse der Pandora von Frank Wedekind] by Alban Berg( )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Christine Schäfer sings the title role in Berg's twelve-tone masterpiece--the femme fatale who so enthralls admirers both male and female that they are powerless to halt their own destruction. Among them are Dr. Schön (James Courtney) and his son Alwa (David Kuebler), the Countess Geschwitz (Hanna Schwarz), the Painter (Clifton Forbes), two princes, an acrobat, and a schoolboy. But the magnetic Lulu is the emotional vortex around which everything revolves--all the way through her own downward spiral, until she is brutally murdered by Jack the Ripper. Maestro James Levine brings unparalleled insight and unexpected lyricism to the score, leading a powerful performance

The Marquise of O- by Heinrich von Kleist( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zur Zeit der napoleonischen Kriege wird eine "Dame von vortrefflichem Ruf" schwanger, ohne zu wissen, wie es dazu kommen konnte oder wer der Erzeuger ist. Da die Familie der Marquise von O..., allen voran ihr Vater, der Herr von G..., unsittliches Verhalten als einzig möglichen Grund für ihre Schwangerschaft sieht, wird die Marquise verstoßen. Die einzige Möglichkeit für die Marquise von O..., ihren Ruf zu retten und ihre Familie zu versöhnen, ist die Auffindung des Vaters ihres Kindes und diesen zur Heirat zu bewegen. Wie geht eine Frau mit einer Vergewaltigung um? Wie geht ihre Familie damit um? Es sind zeitlose Fragen, denen Heinrich von Kleist sich in diesem 1808 erschienenen Werk widmet. Wie das Umfeld die Marquise von O..., obgleich sie doch Opfer ist, unter fortwährenden Druck setzt; wie ihr eigenes Bild von Graf F... sich gleich mehrfach wandelt, je mehr sie über ihn erfährt: vor dem Hintergrund des Krieges produziert Heinrich von Kleist mit dieser Novelle ein faszinierendes Sittenbild des frühen 19. Jahrhunderts

Dearest Father; stories and other writings by Franz Kafka( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most astonishing and revelatory pieces of writing ever produced by this twentieth-century literary icon, presented in both the original German and the English translation. Kafka's letter to his father is at once an exploration of his relationship to his father, his need to write, and the source of his fear--one that his father prompts in him but that is beyond the scope of Kafka's memory and power of reasoning. There is no greater text about authority, the disfiguring effects of shame, and, in particular, Kafka's lifelong need to have his father's unobtainable approval"--
