Catalogue Number: 04N031
Reference: 609 1733-2
Description: The very next opera after Orfeo (1763) is not a "reform opera", although traces of such elements exist in the form and structure of the arias of what, on the surface, is a typical Italian opera seria. The arias, though, are full of rich melody and energy and the orchestration is Gluck's most brilliant and modern to that date. 3 CDs. Italian libretto. Hélène Le Corre, Burçu Uyar (sopranos), Mary-Ellen Nesi, Irini Karaianni (mezzos), Vassilis Kavayas (tenor), Florin Cezar Ouatu (countertenor), Armonia Atenea; Giuseppe Sigismondi de Risio.
