Götterdämmerung by Richard Wagner( Sound Recording )
139 editions published between 1957 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 1,637 libraries worldwide
Siegfried and Brünnhilde are the ideal mythical couple: the greatest hero the world has ever seen, born of a divine father, and a fearless warrior maiden of equally noble ancestry. As he takes off for more heroic adventures at the beginning of this final part of Wagner's epic Ring cycle, he even gives her his all-powerful ring as reminder of their love. The next time they meet, he's about to marry another woman--and swears he has never seen Brünnhilde. The culmination of one the grandest theatrical journeys, this opera features some of Wagner's most ravishingly beautiful and emotionally shattering music. Margaret Harshaw and Wolfgang Windgassen are the ill-fated couple, with Kurt Böhme as the evil mastermind Hagen

Jerome Hines is the sorrowful King Marke and Irene Dalis sings Isolde's stalwart companion, Brangäne

Tannhäuser by Richard Wagner( Sound Recording )
95 editions published between 1959 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 560 libraries worldwide
Wagner worked on Tannhäuser, his fifth opera, from 1842 to 1845, conducting the first performance on October 19, 1845 at the Dresden Royal Opera. The first two nights were uncertaqin successes, but by the third performance the opera began to have its effect on the audience. Over the next few years it became enormously popular throughout Germany, then moved to other countries. In 1859 it became the first Wagner opera to be performed in America. By 1861 Tannhäuser had been given hundreds of times, when Wagner was called upon to produce a revised version for the Paris Opéra. Despite the composer's efforts to adapt the work for French tastes, anti-Wagner riots broke out and he withdrew the work. It was not seen again in France until 1895. Meanwhile Tannhäuser, in the Dresden version, opened the second season of New York's Metropolitan Opera in November of 1884. Nowadays either the Dresden or Paris version may be given, depending on the director's preference; the current recording is an amalgam of the two. -- Page [1-2] of program notes
