ALBUM TITLE: Gluck
WORKS: Iphigénie en Tauride
PERFORMER: Neway, Simoneau, Mollet, Massard; Ensemble Vocal de Paris; Paris Conservatoire Orchestre/Giulini
CATALOGUE NO: PH 16008 (1952)
Recorded during the 1952 Aix Festival, this first complete Tauride recording still packs a punch, delivered more by Giulini and his three superb male leads than by Patricia Neway’s dignified but vocally unwieldy Iphigénie.
