About

This is a full recording of the original Italian version (the 'Vienna version' from 1762) of Gluck’s beloved take on the Orpheus myth, Orfeo et Euridice - plus extra music written by Gluck for later performances of his opera. It includes virtuoso arias for Franco Fagioli and as such represents a brilliant showcase for him and a collectible item for connoisseurs.

This is Franco Fagioli’s first ever recording of a complete opera in which he sings the title role, and the role has become one of Franco’s calling cards in recent seasons. It is known for its absolutely gorgeous music, including one of opera’s most audience-pleasing tunes, the uber-famous aria 'Che farò senza Euridice'.

This version of the opera (by far the most popular one) appears for the first time ever on period instruments on DG / Archiv, hence filling a major gap in our catalogue and is a substantial project featuring one of our exciting new signings in one of his finest roles.
