: Composer of the Week: Gluck

5: The Last Operas and Retirement
Gluck had hoped to find fulfilment in Paris and at first the Paris audiences and critics adored his work. He followed up his first great success with another opera based on a Greek myth - Iphigenie en Tauride. It turned out to be his last grand opera written in the reforming, naturalistic style which he had pioneered. Donald Macleod introduces excerpts from this work and from Gluck's last opera, the conservative pastoral, Echo et Narcisse. Afterthese final efforts Gluck abandoned the lyric stage in Paris for retirement in Vienna.


Introduces: Donald MacLeod

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
