Gluck Iphigénie - R. Muti

Riccardo Muti conducts Christoph Willibald Gluck. --------------------------------------------------------------------- Iphigénie en Aulide (Iphigeneia in Aulis) is an opera in three acts by Christoph Willibald Gluck, the first work he wrote for the Paris stage. The libretto was written by Leblanc du Roullet and was based on Jean Racine's tragedy Iphigénie. It was premiered at the Paris Opéra on 19 April 1774. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Iphigénie en Tauride (Iphigenia in Tauris) was his fifth opera for the French stage. The libretto was written by Nicolas-François Guillard. With Iphigénie en Tauride , Gluck took his operatic reform to its logical conclusion. The recitatives are shorter and they are récitatif accompagné (i.e. the strings and perhaps other instruments are playing, not just continuo accompaniment). The normal dance movements that one finds in the French tragédie en musique are almost entirely absent. The drama is ultimately based on the play Iphigenia in Tauris by the ancient Greek dramatist Euripides which deals with stories concerning the family of Agamemnon in the aftermath of the Trojan War.
