La clemenza di Tito : K. 621 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Recording )

19 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Under James Levine's persuasive and loving leadership, this first-rate cast demonstrates Mozart's late opera crackles with passion and drama. The Roman emperor Tito (Kenneth Riegel) is besieged by death plots, a massive fire in Rome, and his best friend's betrayal. The young Roman patrician Sesto, sung by Tatiana Troyanos in one of her greatest performances, is besotted by the vengeful and manipulative Vitellia (Elizabeth Connell). An enchanting Gail Robinson is Servilia, Sesto's sister, who is desired by the emperor himself but in love with another man
Don Giovanni by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

18 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Performed at the 2006 Innsbruck Festival, Rene Jacobs leads a riveting production that is illustrated by the notion of Don Giovanni as a young rebel and taboo-breaker. Jacobs also tries to respect Mozart's original intentions as closely as possible
Die Schöpfung by Joseph Haydn( )

11 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in German and Undetermined and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Haydn gave birth to a new type of oratorio that reflected perfectly the spirit of his time. With German texts, direct expression of feelings and many grand choruses, it stood for the transition from the aristocracy to a bourgeois society, in which music-making in a group was seen as an expression of civil pride. Extremely popular with amateur choirs, performances with a large ensemble became the rule until well into the 20th century. And the 1960 Electrola recording represents this tradition, with a top-class trio of soloists consisting of the great Elisabeth Grummer, outstanding tenor Josef Traxel and Gottlob Frick, "the blackest of all bass singers"
Agrippina by George Frideric Handel( )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Composed in 1709, Agrippina is an opera seria in three acts on a libretto by Cardinal Vincenzo Grimani. The opera tells the story of Agrippina, the mother of Nero, as she plots the downfall of the Roman Emperor Claudius and the installation of her son as emperor. Grimani's libretto, considered one of the best that Handel set, is full of topical political allusions. Some believe that it reflects the rivalry between Grimani and Pope Clement XI. Jacobs performs the work in its original version

Orlando paladino by Joseph Haydn( Visual )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in Italian and No Linguistic content and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Orlando Paladino, Haydn's greatest success in the genre of the opera, produced by Nigel Lowery and Amir Hosseinpour. Joseph Haydn's Orlando Paladino owes its very existence to an event that never happened: the grand duke of Russia and his spouse were supposed to visit Esterháza. Willing to welcome lavishly these illustrious guests, the Prince Esterházy asked Haydn to compose an opera. Yet the princely couple changed their route. Caprice? Hitch? History does not say. Be that as it may, Haydn did compose his Orlando. The opera, premiered in 1782, were soon to be acclaimed as Haydn's greatest success in the genre of the opera. Orlando Paladino is a heroic and comical drama inspired by Ludovico Ariosto's Orlando Furioso. Haydn combines gracefully epic adventures and unbridled love games. Two stage directors, Nigel Lowery and Amir Hosseinpour, foster the dynamic elements of the plot with lively details, accompanied by the Baroque music maestro, René Jacobs
Johannes-Passion = St. John Passion : BWV 245 by Johann Sebastian Bach( Visual )

9 editions published in 2016 in German and Undetermined and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The foundations of Marc Minkowski's career lie in Baroque music, and he has enjoyed a long relationship with Warner Classics, but this Johannes-Passion (St John Passion) is his first Bach for the label. The work's terse drama - here presented through just nine singers - is ideally suited to both his scrupulous musicianship and his keen sense of theatre. The French conductor describes Bach's great masterpieces as 'a journey you have to prepare for meticulously, over a long period of time. You come back from it like an explorer comes back from Everest or the Moon - transformed"
