Iphigénie en Tauride (CD)

Sony Classical offers opera lovers another ten complete recordings from the RCA Victor, CBS/Sony and Eurodisc catalogues, with highlights from La Juive and the complete Thaïs with Anna Moffo as well as Schoenberg’s Moses und Aron by Hans Rosbaud for the first time on CD, remastered from the analogue masters.

This latest release is one of the widest ranging yet in this series, spanning the history of theatrical music from Monteverdi to Schoenberg.Moving on historically to opera’s most important reformer, Gluck. Iphigénie en Tauride, arguably his greatest achievement, was given a vivid reading in 1983 by conductor Riccardo Muti and an outstanding cast. After enthusing about “Muti’s driving, insistent intensity” and, in the title role, Carol Vaness’s “driving, soaring voice”, Fanfare’s reviewer also noted that “the rest of the cast here is superior … particularly the Pylade of Gösta Winbergh that is well-nigh flawless.”
