Description

Orfeo ed Euridice (CD)
Composer(s):    Calzabigi, Ranieri; Gluck, Christoph Willibald
Artist(s):    Davies, Iestyn; La Nuova Musica; Bottone, Rebecca; Bevan, Sophie; Nuova Musica, La; Bates, David
Label:    PENTATONE MUSIC (PEN)

La Nuova Musica presents a new live recording of Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice, with countertenor star Iestyn Davies singing the title role. Once created to reinstate the “noble simplicity and calm grandeur” of ancient Greek culture, the opera continues to delight audiences with its direct and unpretentious appeal, epitomized by the world-famous aria Che farò senza Euridice.

This live recording presents the original 1762 Vienna premiere version of the opera, with Gluck’s exquisite evocation of the Elysian Fields from his 1774 Paris version as a small addition. La Nuova Musica and its artistic director David Bates are among the most exciting young Baroque ensembles of our times. For their first PENTATONE recording, they work together with three exceptional vocalists: countertenor Iestyn Davies and sopranos Sophie Bevan and Rebecca Bottone.
