Der Rosenkavalier by Richard Strauss( Recording )

1 edition published in 2007 in German and held by 5 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

Nosferatu : a symphony of horror by F. W Murnau( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nosferatu - When a young man travles to the diamls country of Transylvania in order to get COunt Orlok to sign some important papers, he has no idea of the blood letting terror that's in store for him. Nosferatu was the first in a long line of Dracula films, and really captures the nightmarish qualities of author Bram Stoker's writings. Legend has it that Max Schrek, whol played the lead role of the blood sucking fiends was such a follower of method acting, that he eventually came to believe that he himself was an actual vampire. This dark and brooding picture was part of the German film making renaissance, known for its abstract expressionism and avant-garde film design. Even though this film is silent, an underlying scream of horror runs throughout
