Urtext / Critical Edition
Following upon the great success of "Iphigénie en Tauride", Gluck arranged the popular drama of human passions, guilt and unconditional friendship once again for Vienna's Burgtheater, where it was premièred in 1781. Especially remarkable is the masterly orchestration, which, among other things, turns the forces of Nature into a character in the drama and projects a striking contrast between civilization and savagery.
Now Bärenreiter are issuing the carefully revised and corrected vocal score in a new engraving adapted to meet their current standards.
