Album Summary

>Gluck, Christoph Willibald : Iphigenie en Tauride
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"John Eliot Gardiner's 1985 Philips recording has long held pride of place... But Minkowski's has even greater incisiveness, immediacy and bravura. Sometimes his effects are startling: the terrifying thwacks of bows on strings in Thoas's 'De noirs pressentiments', the bloodthirsty choruses of Scythians and Turkish-style dances that follow, the extra notch of intensity he brings to every number..." ***** BBC Music
