Muziek - Aantal: 1 - Boek

Pubished by Boieldieu jeune, in Paris, 1781 (no date), folio (25x32cm), (2) 217pp. bound - Second edition, rare, of the complete score of the opera. It differs from the original since it does not have the dedication to the queen. This very edition was published by Des Lauriers. Used period half-leather binding. C. M. number on the front cover. Foxing, a little dislocated. The edges of the board are chewed. Opera composed in Vienna in 1762 by Christophe Willibald von Gluck (1714-1787) on an Italian libretto by Ranieri Calzabigi, Orpheus and Eurydice was completely revised in 1774 by the composer to be performed in Paris on the stage of the Royal Academy of Music, on a libretto rewritten in French by Pierre-Louis Moline. Gluck notably changes the tessiture of the various roles, adapting the role of Orpheus (intended for a castrate in the Italian version) for a haute-contre voice. A major event in the history of opera, Gluck seeks to create a total work in which dramaturgy, lyrics, theatre, music and singing serve tragedy. "I have sought to reduce music to its true function, that of supporting poetry in order to reinforce the emotional expression and impact of dramatic situations without interrupting the action and without undermining it with superfluous ornaments." He is one of the few who has happily exploited recitatives, which he uses for dramatic and tragic purposes.
