About the Event

Gluck's triumph was evident with the success of his opera "Iphigénie en Tauride," establishing his reputation in Paris. Through his innovative approach, Gluck tapped into the concept of "humanité," resonating with the public just before the French Revolution. By breaking away from traditional musical forms, he delved into the depths of psychology, giving the orchestra an independent existence. The overture to "Iphigénie" begins with a serene ambiance, abruptly interrupted by a thunderstorm. The choir's pleas to the gods are immediately met with solo responses. This boldness not only influenced revolutionary figures like Richard Wagner but also retains its enchantment in Gluck's music even today.
