Not talking about releases here, only works: I mean in the language used  
for the alias, is the work known
in another name? "The Firebird" is an example of this; titled works that  
are usually translated in certain languages.

I'm not so sure about the English title for the cantata; to me it looks  
weird if the cantata is sung with German text. Perhaps we need to take the  
libretto into consideration & only use translated titles for translated
