Glücklich Gluck ! Orfeo ed Euridice, Iphigénie in Tauride

Glücklich Gluck ! Tonight, Laurence Equilbey conducted Gluck's Orfeo ed Euridice broadcast live on medici tv but still available to subscribers.  live at the Théâtre de Poissy.. Equilbey performances zing with vigour - listen to that descent into Hades !  Vocally. she works with some of the best, such as the Accentus choir, the ground breaking, innovative ensemble with whom she's been associated many years.  Delight in the choruses.  Equilbey conducts the Insula Orchestra, re-joined by Franco Fagioli, Malin Hartelius and Emmanuelle de Negri.

Even better,  Gluck's Iphigénie in Tauride, also recorded live from a new production  at the Grand Théâtre de Genève, Switzerland, on 4th February, 2015. An even more high proifile cast - Anna Caterina Antonacci, Bruno Taddia, Steve Davislim (hearthrob) . Hartmut Haenchen conducts the venerable Orchestre de la  Susiise Romande. Listen HERE on BBC Radio 3 from Thursday or watch the complete original from Geneva HERE on arte tv. (already online)
