Most widely held works by Philharmonia Orchestra (London, England)
Der Rosenkavalier by Richard Strauss( Sound Recording )
50 editions published between 1956 and 2010 in German and Undetermined and held by 1,586 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

Falstaff by Giuseppe Verdi( file )
42 editions published between 1956 and 2011 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 1,333 libraries worldwide
Above all, Verdi's last opera requires the greatest of conductors and a consummate singing actor in the title role. Here we have both: James Levine, who knows exactly how to draw out all the superb colors in the orchestra, while keeping the music effervescent as he also gives the singers all the room they need to bring their roles to life. As Falstaff, the masterful Giuseppe Taddei knows the secret of using every word and note to create an indelible and loveable character. Fiorenza Cossotto is Dame Quickly, the woman who gives Falstaff a run for his money

Tristan und Isolde by Richard Wagner( Sound Recording )
35 editions published between 1953 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 1,205 libraries worldwide
Wagner's revolutionary score changed the world of music with its radical portrayal of an all-consuming passion that can only be fulfilled in death. The legendary Birgit Nilsson sings Isolde, one of her greatest roles, in her second Met season. Karl Liebl is Tristan, the man she loves--and the best friend of the man she is forced to marry. Jerome Hines is the sorrowful King Marke and Irene Dalis sings Isolde's stalwart companion, Brangäne
Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( file )
42 editions published between 1953 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,140 libraries worldwide
This is Maria Callas's only broadcast from the stage of the Met. Hearing "La Divina" in an actual performance is a unique thrill, and Lucia is a huge part of the palpable Callas mystique. Donizetti's bloody tale of the Scottish lass torn from her true love and forced into an arranged marriage, only to go mad and murder her bridegroom on their wedding night, was the perfect vehicle for Callas's wizardry. Her haunting voice simply becomes Lucia's--every facet of emotion so pronounced that we cannot escape her spell
