Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg by Richard Wagner( Recording )

24 editions published between 1995 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Not many companies have the resources to put on Wagner's only comedy with all the élan it deserves. The Met does, particularly when Music Director James Levine is conducting: his affection for the work is matched only by his skill at bringing it to life. Levine leads a top-flight cast of solo singers, plus a huge chorus and orchestra. James Morris conveys all of Hans Sachs wisdom, and humanity; Karita Mattila sparkles as Eva, the young woman in love with Walther, the impetuous knight, ardently sung by Ben Heppner

Szenen aus Goethes Faust by Robert Schumann( )

11 editions published in 1995 in 3 languages and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Am Pult des Symphonieorchesters des Bayerischen Rundfunks: der herausragende englische Dirigent Daniel Harding. Er präsentiert mit den "Faust-Szenen"ein groß angelegtes Meisterstück, das die komplexe und hochphilosophische literarische Vorlage von Goethe in einer losen Szenenfolge musikalisch nachzeichnet. Immer wieder beschäftigte sich Schumann gerade in seinem letzten Lebensjahrzehnt mit den Möglichkeiten, die im vokal-symphonischen und musikdramatischen Komponieren liegen. Die Partie des Faust gestaltet der außergewöhnliche Bariton Christian Gerhaher, ihm zur Seite stehen Christiane Karg als Gretchen sowie weitere international hoch angesehene Solisten, der Kammerchor der Augsburger Domsingknaben und der Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks" (

Der Freischutz by Carl Maria von Weber( )

15 editions published between 1990 and 2008 in German and Undetermined and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner said this early-Romantic gem was the most German of German operas. Its irresistible mix of colorful folklore, the spooky supernatural, a tender romance, and the passionate struggle between good and evil are all captured in Weber's tuneful and dramatic score. The cast in this rare U.S. performance is sensational: Sándor Kónya as our hero, the forester Max, who must win a shooting contest in order to marry his beloved Agathe (the ravishing Pilar Lorengar), despite the dark plotting of Caspar (Gerd Feldhoff)
