Coro della Radiotelevisione svizzera
I Barocchisti / Diego Fasolis

Conducted by Diego Fasolis, this is the world premiere recording of a version of the opera that was performed at the Royal Palace in Naples in 1774, 12 years after Orfeo ed Euridice was staged in Vienna as the first of Gluck’s ‘reform operas’. In these works Gluck emphasised simplicity of form and directness of expression, consciously rejecting the extravagances of opera seria, which dominated the early 18th century and was typified by convoluted plots and extended showpiece arias.

2017 brought the release on Erato of Jaroussky’s own retelling of the myth, La storia di Orfeo, which comprised arias by three Italian composers from the 17th century – Monteverdi, Rossi and Sartorio. His Euridice was the Hungarian soprano Emoke Baráth, who in the Gluck opera moves over to the role of Amor, god of love. Euridice is sung in the new recording by the American soprano Amanda Forsythe, who already features in the Erato catalogue alongside Jaroussky in Agostino Steffani’s opera Niobe, Regina di Tebe.

In addition to La storia di Orfeo, Diego Fasolis has collaborated with Philippe Jaroussky on Erato recordings of Vinci’s Artaserse (audio and video albums), Handel’s Faramondo and Pergolesi’s Stabat mater.
