Parsifal [ein Bühnenweihfestspiel] by Richard Wagner( )

11 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in German and Undetermined and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The mystical enchantment of Wagner's last opera means it has special place in the hearts of opera lovers. On the surface, it's the story of Parsifal's quest to restore the Holy Grail. But for many listeners it is also a profound inner journey that takes them to a unique place. James Levine's conducting of the work has become legendary, and our all-star cast, with Plácido Domingo in the title role, is on the same exalted plane. Violeta Urmana is the temptress Kundry and Ekkehard Wlaschiha is the evil magician Klingsor
Sämtliche Orchesterlieder = Complete orchestral songs = Intégrale des lieder avec orchestre by Alexander Zemlinsky( )

10 editions published in 2000 in German and Undetermined and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La Gioconda by Amilcare Ponchielli( )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Renata Tebaldi wringing every bit of drama out of the title role, there are plenty of opportunities for goose bumps here. Add to that Carlo Bergonzi's glowing portrayal of the Enzo, the man she loves and the impassioned Fiorenza Cossotto as the woman he loves, plus one jealous husband (Bonaldo Giaiotti), and an Inquisition spy (Cornell MacNeil) bent on revenge, and you have operatic extravagance at its wonderful best, all set in romantic, mysterious 17th century Venice

Giancarlo del Monaco's new production elegantly intertwines Mascangi's and Leoncavallo's well-loved operas, masterpieces which brought new levels of realism into operas through their so-called verismo style
Stabat Mater by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi( )

5 editions published in 2004 in Latin and Undetermined and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Opening the disc is Vivaldi's brief Sonata al Santo Sepolcro, an instrumental work probably intended for inclusion in an Easter church service. This is followed by a Stabat Mater proper, also by Vivaldi. Vivaldi used just the first ten verses of the text, creating one of the most sombre of all settings, here performed by the Canadian ensemble Theatre of Early Music and its director, counter-tenor Daniel Taylor, who in Bach is joined by Emma Kirkby, taking on the soprano part

19 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Getting into his grandfather's pottery workshop at night, a little boy finds an unsually large vase. Fascinated, the child feels the still-warm material, which - whether by a miracle or the hand of a magician, who knows? - at once changes into a magnificent piece of Chinese porcelain. Presently, from behind the great blue-enamelled trees, there apears a fisherman in his sampan ... That's how the story of The nightingale, told all in music begins, as the waking dream of a child in the land of Chinese art-and of mobile phones and webcans
