Reviews of this publication:

 


* Hector Berlioz was enthralled by Gluck and heard his masterpieces
Iphigénie en Tauride, Orphée, Alceste, and Armide in Paris

Hector Berlioz was enthralled by Gluck and heard his masterpieces
Iphigénie en Tauride,
Orphée, Alceste, and Armide in Paris. The original Italian version
of Orphée gives the title role to
a castrato. Gluck rewrote the part for high tenor for the
performances in France. In 1859 Berlioz
arranged the opera so that Orpheus could be sung by the great
mezzo-soprano Pauline Viardot,
with whom he worked closely at that time. He changed the formal
design by dividing the work into
four instead of three acts and placing the scenes in Hades and the
Elysian Fields in separate acts.
He also changed certain sections of Orpheus’s part, mainly in the
recitatives, and fundamentally
reworked Gluck’s orchestration.

Berlioz’s version of Orphée was published as volume 22a of the New
Berlioz Edition in 2005.
Our new vocal score is based on that volume.
