30 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 839 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The tragic fate of the nuns of the Carmelite convent at Copiègne during the French Revolution inspired one of Francis Poulenc's most personal works, and one of the most profoundly moving operas in the repertoire. At its center is Isabel Leonard as Blanche de la Force, a shy young aristocratic woman who joins the order on the eve of the Revolution, flees when the sisters, forced to leave their convent, take a vow of martyrdom, and is finally reunited with them as they face death by the guillotine. Felicity Palmer is Madame de Croissy, Patricia Racette is Madame Lidoine, and Elizabeth Bishop is Mother Marie. Paul Appleby and David Pittsinger co-star as Blanche's brother and father

Century rolls Lollapalooza ; Slonimsky's earbox by John Adams( Recording )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of all the so-called minimalists working today, John Adams is the only one with any good ideas left. Witness this delightful release. The key to Adams's creativity is that he isn't bound by theoretical constraints on what "minimalism" should be. Century Rolls (1995) is a commission by Emanuel Ax, and it was inspired by the composer's listening to a CD recording of an ancient player piano. Century Rolls doesn't duplicate that sound, but it is, instead, an unexpected romp across new rhythmic territory. As for Mr. Ax, he comports himself very well, particularly in the difficult first Movement, which requires deft coordination of all forces involved. The brief Lollapalooza (1995) is more recognizably minimalist but with considerable orchestral color and shifting moods. And Slominsky's Earbox (1996) is a powerfully full-orchestra-driven canter. All this is to say that the CD is one of the best releases of Adams's career, and it will appeal to a very wide audience. --Paul Cook

Peter and the Wolf is a story abouut a young boy who conquers a wolf. The boy Peter is represented by a sprightly string quartet, and the Bird sings its trills and runs on the flute. Grandfather's grumbling presence is immediately recognizable on the bassoon and the Cat stalks and preens as a clarinet. Finally there is the Wolf himself, whose sinister musical shape is three French horns. Wolf Tracks is a tale that converts the image of the wolf from a fearsome creature to one that represents the imerative to cherish and protect national resources
