'Iphigenie en Aulide' was the opera with which Gluck set out to conquer the lyric stage in Paris in April 1774. France was the only country to resist the fashion for Italian opera that prevailed everywhere else in civilised Europe in the first half of the 18th century and to develop instead its own national form of serious opera, the tragedie lyrique. As an acknowledged master of theItalian manner, therefore, Gluck's appearance in Paris was bound to be controversial… He had a useful ally in Paris, however, in the person of the newly crowned young queen Marie Antoinette, who had previously, as an Austrian archduchess, been one of his singing pupils at the Viennese court, and could always quell dissent during the long and stormy rehearsals for the new opera by threatening to fetch the queen. In the event the opera was a great success and Gluck quickly became established as the new saviour of French opera, a worthy inheritor of the mantle of Lully and Rameau.

Iphigénie en Tauride (Iphigeneia in Tauris) is a tragédie lyrique in four acts by Niccolò Piccinni, which was first performed at the Académie royale de musique (the Paris Opéra) on January 23, 1781. The opera’s libretto, by Alphonse du Congé Dubreuil, is based on a play of the same name by Claude Guimond de la Touche, although the ultimate source was the tragedy Iphigeneia in Tauris by Euripides. This opera marked the climax of the quarrel between the supporters of Piccinni and those of Christoph Willibald Gluck...

Two late and baleful tragedies by Euripides focus on the ill-starred daughter of the Greek King, Agamemnon. Will he sacrifice Iphigenia in order to secure fair winds for his voyage to Troy? In Aulis, the drama rages until she is spared. Having escaped to Tauris, Iphigenia finds herself compelled to kill her own brother before, once more, the fickle gods intervene.

Two late and baleful tragedies by Euripides focus on the ill-starred daughter of the Greek King, Agamemnon. Will he sacrifice Iphigenia in order to secure fair winds for his voyage to Troy? In Aulis, the drama rages until she is spared. Having escaped to Tauris, Iphigenia finds herself compelled to kill her own brother before, once more, the fickle gods intervene. Gluck's operatic settings are very rarely staged together, but Pierre Audi's production makes a darkly compelling case for their dramatic unity. All the lead performers here are experienced exponents of Gluck, and together they present a powerfully idiomatic experience.

Niccolò Piccinni was a prolific and popular composer, writing some 120 operas in Naples, Rome, and in Paris, where he was singing tutor to Marie Antoinette. Unintentionally he became mixed up in the famous Querelle surrounding the operas of Gluck, which prompted the management of the Opéra to commission a setting of Iphigénie en Tauride from both composers. In time, Gluck’s proved more successful, and thus contributed to his greater reputation; however, Piccinni’s lively and tuneful work enjoyed an extraordinary degree of popularity in his day…

Céphale & Procris is an important, early work: dating from 1774-1775, just before Gluck’s arrival in Paris and his Iphigenie en Aulide, this is a historic cog in the wheel turning French stage works from the Lullian past into the future to be established by Gluck. The recitatives are short and dramatically to the point, in the Italian style, and each character and scene has its music adapted to it in tailor-made fashion, often with ravishing solos from orchestral winds and brass. Everything which makes this an exciting historical event.

Gluck’s neglected masterpiece with Magdalena Kožená as a stunning Paride. The role of Paris, with more than half a dozen beautiful arias plus duets and trios, offers Magdalena Kožená everything she needs to charm listeners with her exceptional singing – so does the role of Helena for Susan Gritton, a long-standing ally of McCreesh and the Gabrielis. Paul McCreesh and his Gabrieli Consort & Players offer a splendid accompaniment.
